Intercreative Cinema: Collaborative Expression with Digital Video
by James Jung Hoon Seo

Master of Science, Media Arts and Sciences Program, September 2001.


Advances in technologies for digital video editing and streaming have lowered the barrier to entry for aspiring videomakers, and they provide an opportunity to expand the vocabulary for using and sharing video. Custom interfaces for editing and sharing video can suggest and support novel methods of collaborative production, cinematic narration, and casual dialogue with media. This thesis research presents Individeo, an online application for video browsing and editing, and explores how interface design can enable closer collaboration among online videographers. The thesis evaluates Individeo's custom interfaces through Honeymoon, an experimental collaborative video production, in which geographically separated videomakers attempt to build a cinematic narrative together through online collaboration.
