FMV video games: the evolution of kinoautomat
FMV (or full motion video) is a video game narration technique that relies upon pre-recorded video files (rather than sprites, vectors, or 3D models) to display action in the game. In the lecture MU Game Studies we will look at the beginnings of FMV games in the 1980s, their birth, their downfall, and their current rebirth.
Jan Sebastian Uruba is a student of Theory of Interactive Media, member of MU Game Studies, game designer, and – most importantly – an enthusiast.

Short film has great prospects for the future! One of the areas which it now occupies is also the never-ending world of digital games which often hide short films of various forms. And because we enjoy playing them, we shook hands with the festival Gamer Pie and decided to take a look at these possible Futures together. We won’t be reading coffee grounds or ponder about tarot cards, however. You can look forward to guests whose past, present, and future is connected to the development of games.
Throughout the entire festival you’ll have the opportunity to watch an interactive film, play games that flirt with film, or use VR.
