Actress Nimrat Kaur says it is a fantastic time to be in the entertainment business — thanks to the boom of digital platforms.
“It is a great time (to be in the entertainment business). There is a lot of work happening. People are constantly coming out with new content be it actors, technicians, writers and directors. So, it is a fantastic time to be in the entertainment business,” Nimrat told IANS.
The actress has starred in web series “The Test Case”, in which she was seen essaying role of a combat soldier.
She said working on the show has been the “most gratifying experience” for her.
After the raging success of Netflix’s original interactive choose-your-own-adventure film ‘Black Mirror: Bandersnatch’, Google-owned YouTube is now working on interactive shows and live specials.
Following the traditional format of interactive shows, the content YouTube is planning would allow viewers to make their own choices throughout the show and eventually conclude an ending of their choice.
The project is under the supervision of Ben Relles, former Head of YouTube’s unscripted programming, SlashGear reported on Tuesday.
Developers who create this kind of interactive content develop multiple storylines for the same show.
To keep the story flow smooth, the different storylines are made to intersect at certain points, resulting in different potential endings for a single show, which once started, cannot be paused, rewinded or forwarded.
With Bandersnatch that launched in December last year, Netflix became the first content platform to attempt an interactive entertainment aimed at adults.
Because of its design to keep viewers hooked watching and playing, Bandersnatch did not come with a set run-time.
However, according to information available on public domains, it lasted for a peiod of 40-90 minutes roughly before getting to the end credits.
