Abstract

Crossed Lines (Dir: Sarah Atkinson) is an original fictional interactive film amalgamating multi-linear plots, a multi-screen viewing environment, an inter- active interface and an interactive story navigation form. It has been exhibited at the Electronic Literature Organisation conference at Washington State University, US; the Digital Interactive Media in Arts and Entertainment conference arts show in Athens; The Interrupt arts show in Providence, US; the EuroITV arts show in Belgium and the International Digital Interactive Storytelling conference in Portugal. This essay reflects upon the creative processes of devising, scripting, directing and authoring the interactive film installation in which the viewer is given control over the flow, pace and ordering of the video-based narratives. The entire production process from script-writing to the final installation took place over a four-year period and involved nine principle cast members, numerous crew personnel, technicians, programmers, various cameras, audio recording equip- ment, cutting edge computer processors, reams of cable and a precariously- soldered telephone. The complexities of undertaking and delivering such a project are reflected upon and discussed within this essay from the first-person perspective of the artist herself.
