"VideoVideoJam is an experimental game jam bringing together film, video, animation, and comic artists to make multi-screen experimental FMV (full-motion video) games using custom-built tools as an introduction to DIY game-making.
VVJ is a jam that uses FMV game-making tool ScreenPerfect (think a video-based Twine), inspired by Hannah Epstein's synchronous multi-screen/device installation game PsXXYborg, built by Alex Leitch. Essentially, the workshop offers to download and give a tutorial on a NEW game engine called Screen Perfect, which was developed to run PsXXYborg. It's a full motion video game engine, so if you're a filmmaker and don't know computer programming you can still use it. It is, furthermore, meant for dual screen media creation, which means we will also be discussing some ideas on how to think about the two-screen format in the narrative design process."
