This week’s audience topic explored the various types of viewer experiences whether it is passive or interactive. Personally, when I see a film for the first time, I prefer to go to the cinema. This is due to the cinematic experience that eliminates distractions and upholds certain etiquette to which there is a sense of respect to the film and among audience members. However, after my first viewing, I do enjoy other types of exhibition within the comfort of my own home, primarily due to convenience.
If I enjoy a film, I will often become emotionally involved, generally a result of the story itself or deep, complex characters to whom I can relate. For me, these aspects are emphasised through the cinematography and editing.
