Pål Aam from Volda University College talks about the various ways in which we watch and interact with video today, annotating, touching, clicking etc. Voss became the location for this particular project as well, since a lot of young people are gathering there. Four videos were shot there over two weeks last summer. The interface they have created, HyperNytt, allows for the clicking between videos which is triggered by certain images in the videos. Example: In one of the videos, a group of parachuters are rehearsing the moves they intend to do up in the air, and this triggers the appearance of another video icon below, which indicates that it is possible to get information about what these formations look like in the air.
