Medienwoche 2006 - Berlin 2006

About Medienwoche 2006


Media week Berlin-Brandenburg
30th August - 09th September, 2006

The media week Berlin-Brandenburg presented itself in 2005 as one of the significant communication platforms for the media branch. The decision of the mass of Berlin to organise the IFA documents from 2006 yearly the growing importance of the capital region as a media location with national and international emission and puts the basis for the advancement of the integrated plan of convention, mass, events and cooperation arrangements.

The media week Berlin-Brandenburg goes back to the successful plan of the year before and summarises different top-class branch arrangements, at the same time in Berlin-Brandenburg take place under a common roof. Within the scope of an integrated arrangement draught a comprehensive coordination of the partners about the program planning and the communication has taken place. Thus the best possible overview about the varied program should be offered to the visitors and all synergies for the purposes of a strong location communication been of use. The realisation of the program offers by the single partners - and their entrance requirements - are not touched of it.

Thus the media week Berlin-Brandenburg gets on in 2006 once more as the meeting place of the media branch for the seasonal start after the summer break and continues with it the successful roof brands strategy of the last year.

In the connection of media forum (30th August - 01st September), IFA 2006 (01 - 06th September), M100 Sanssouci Colloquium (08. - 09th September), media of summits, media Night and more numerously other branch events it is the central platform for the branch communication in the capital region.

    HOW TO CREATE CHOICES IN ANINTERACTIVE MOVIE EXPERIENCE ?


    Build Context with opposing values -> Choice in a limited time with a trade off (physical or psyhological) -> Consequences:

    Choice 1. BUILD CONTEXT WITH OPPOSING VALUES -> CHOICE WITH TRADE OFF -> CONSEQUENCES;
    Choice 2. I have to escape the murder scene but also to understand what is going on… -> Run or Explore ->Obtain clues vs Risk of being arrested.

    HOW TO CREATE POINTS OF VIEW ?


    ARCHETYPES + EXTRA DEPTH ->ILLUSION OF KNOWING CHARACTERS->EMPATHY -> CONTEXT FOR CHOICE.

    HOW TO CREATE EMOTION ?


    EMPATHY->IDENTIFICATION->EMOTIONAL INVOLVEMENT or/and SHARE CHARACTERS’ EMOTIONS->EXPERIENCE EMOTION

    HOW TO TRANSLATE EMOTIONS IN INTERFACE / GAME PLAY ?


    Recreate the illusion of characters’ feelings by emulating their physical/psychological perception :

    Physical :

  • Physical interface (MPAR).
  • Physical mimicry - demo.

    Psychological :
  • Erosion of controls - demo
  • Erosion of perception - demo

    (It think demo's available for presentation only, so you can't see it now, but you can see the public version here - UL)
