Evaluating Visual Perceptive Media
A contribution to Interactive Digital Storytelling is made through prototype The Break Up a film short for online TV and video using Object-Based Broadcasting. The prototype can change its music, video and color grade when informed by implicit interaction. This paper evaluates whether a music genre expected to suit the participant enhanced their experience. Half the participants saw The Break Up with music expected to suit them, half not, color grade and video were constant. They completed a form about their experience. Participants expected to not ‘enjoy’ the music scored their engagement somewhat higher (67/100) than those expected to like it (58/100). The prototype tested showed it was capable of automatically compositing media objects in response user context, combined with a positive reception to implicit personalization this indicates potential for further work.
