DIGITAL CINEMA IN TRANSITION

How do you engage with the film
American Mary and its trans-media?
We are a team of researchers from the University of British Columbia, in Vancouver, Canada. We want to find out how digital media is transforming your engagement with feature films and its trans-media components, through the use of mobile devices, social media and crowdsourcing.
The term ‘Digital Cinema’ encapsulates media expressions of a wider digital media ecology. Here, the conceptions, articulations and manifestations of digital media, including cinema, are fluid expressions for creating community, meaning and sub-cultures, gesturing between films, games, apps, images, narrative and performance.
If you would like to find out more about the entire project, please visit digitalcinema.ca.
We have set up an online-survey to ask audiences about their opinions on 5 recent films.
We want to know how you creatively
interact with digital cinema and its stories.
The producers and distributors of American Mary know of our research. Because they respect their audiences they like it. But they did not commission it, and we’re not in any way related to them. And we have no arrangements with them to share any information.
