My research examines how emerging technologies utilise aspects of the cinematic form in innovative and transformative ways. In my book ‘Affective Intensities and Evolving Horror Forms: From Found Footage to Virtual Reality’ I focus on this transformation in the genre of horror cinema, examining how aspects of cinema translate to new media forms such as streaming video, video games and virtual reality. My other research interests include television, immersive and interactive storytelling, the practice and artform of screenwriting, affect and embodiment, Deleuzian cinema theory, and the ethical possibilities of cinema.
