Non-Linear Storytelling: when part of the story is the whole story.

Read on Medium:

As we go forward building deeper and more meaningful 360 VR projects, the question of what type of storytelling we work in will become more important. If we are going to build deep and rich stories-as-experiences, we will need to consider building experiences where a user is able to leave the headset with a sense of having had a rich experience without actually needing to give them the full experience.

It’s a strange idea, but hang with me.

The linear narrative story telling format dominates our understanding of storytelling. Humans create, share and expect: linear narratives. Stories with clear beginnings, middles, and ends.
