It is pretty common for video games to have three or four different endings depending on choices and actions made during the game- gives some good replay value too.

How about this-

Apply that principal to a movie. At key points, you choose whether someone opens a door or moves on, affecting how things play out later. This would of course require the movie crew to film every conceivable scene- but it could could make for some interesting viewing experiences for the audience. If I have thought of it, someone has probably done it.

What do you think?

DK - As much as I would like that, I would also be displeased by it. We must have lines upon which we see our films - so that we are inspired to write and create what we want in future presentations. :)

Good point. I think it works well for games but for movies, it might dilute the writers' vision.....unless they specifically write for that purpose.

DK - Quite so! However, your notion is not without its merits! It is quite compelling. :)

It would be an ambitious project. I would imagine it done on an indie level first. There would also be the challenges of having it be stream-able with almost no latency.

DK - That would likely be a programming nightmare! :)

Didn't they try something like that on DVD can't remember the theme though. Great idea really. Like playing dragons lair in the 80s that was a game trying to be a cartoon. U could have it in film. I still thinks it comes under gaming some what? Get the Commodore 64 out anyways bubble bobble or way of the exploding fist? I'm in

Take This.... This is the blood of our lord
