Digitalization of the Cinematic Experience
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis provides an analysis of the debate on what it means to experience film and how this relates to changes undergone by the medium itself due to the introduction of digital technologies in the field of cinema. Initially the debate is introduced and analyzed, which will form the offset for a set of arguments that will elaborate how and why the debate itself seems to be lagging behind the developments in the actual industry. By including new media theory in the film theory debate whenever digital technologies and cinema are both involved, I will argue, a more accurate and more deliberate argument can be construed. In the end I will provide some pointers in regard to possible next steps film theory could undertake in order to provide for legitimate analyses of film-related phenomena.
