InhalteNarrative is an important concept in the design and creation of new media. Far more than just story-telling, the idea of narrative invites us to think about structures, processes and systems essential to time-based organization and spatial arrangement. This course examines narrative strategies for different kinds of creative situations: from photo sequence to moving image aesthetics, montage theories for time-based media, from fiction and documentary film, animation to video experiments for ubiquitous screen contexts, game, hypertext, and immersive environments.
