    Question Interactive Story Telling

    Hey everyone!

    I'm a small town college kid/filmmaker and I've been wanting to find ways to challenge myself. I absolutely loved the concept of Netflix's Bandersnatch and I've been wanting to create an interactive film similar to it. Unfortunately, I'm not sure how to go about it. Getting the story and the filming done is easy for me but trying to figure out how to actually make it interactive is what I'm struggling with.

    Do you guys have any ideas or methods that might work for this? I'm open to anything and am willing to learn whatever I need to.

    Big Thanks!

    -Cabe

    Greetings~

    That's great you have the means to produce a project like this, but keep in mind creating a tapestry that the observer has to stitch together themselves does become complicated and can wane in interest if it's weak.

    This sounds sort of simple and off target, but would probably give you a flurry of ideas on the "how" to film/animate what you want. Read a book or two that adopts this format, I remember years ago Goosebumps did a bunch of choose your own adventure stories and they were terrific. At the very least it should give a sense of how to construct movable plots, and might give you some ideas on how to edit your ideas into something that flows for the audience~

    I appreciate the reply.

    What i'm looking for is the technical method at which to give viewers the options; how to make the interactivity part. I have the story paths and everything else ready to go, I just don't know how to do the technical side of things, or make the "game" side of things. Should I used something like Unity and make it into a game? Should I code it entirely in HTML as a web-based thing? What sort of tools should I use to finish this project?
