I have been working with immersive narrative for about 15 years. As an artist who makes interactive movies, I am working in a Bermuda triangle between film, theater and video games. It's an exciting territory: it includes research and the development of theory, as well as artistic production. During this time I have created installations and performances that combine computer-driven slides, sound and video shows, virtual reality, and more recently, motion sensing and speech recognition and synthesis. I have collaborated with writers, actors, composers, programmers, videographers, designers and animators to create custom software programs, interfaces and interactive or responsive narrative structures. In recent years I have also collaborated with research scientists to develop newer technologies. For example, with a computational linguist I created a system for interactive dialogue using speech recognition and synthesis, and through dialogue with researchers in the visual representation of speech, I have created an approach to the visuai representation of "responsive" characters.
