Francis Ford Coppola's Interactive, Part-3D Twixt Getting Non-Interactive, All 2-D Blu-ray

twixt-08022011
A couple of years back, Francis Ford Coppola hosted the most flat-out crazy Comic-Con panel I have ever heard of, let alone seen. Alongside the electronic musician Dan Deacon, he premiered some footage from the experimental horror movie, Twixt, and between the two of them, the remixed the scenes and soundtrack on the fly.

I wrote about it in sheer disbelief from Hall H, but here’s the crux of the big idea: Twixt was designed to go on tour with Coppola and Deacon and be reconfigured live to accomodate the reactions of the audience. Coppola would elongate and revisit scenes and ideas the audience did like and skip over those they didn’t. Some scenes were also presented in 3D, too, with a giant pair of glasses swooping down into shot to signal the transition.

Now 20th Century Fox have announced that they’ll be releasing the film on Blu-ray in the US. But, sadly, it won’t be the interactive version, which Coppola had demonstrated as running from an iPad app, nor will any of it be in 3D.

This is its first wide release Stateside, but the film did sneak into one San Francisco cinema last August. That version wasn’t interactive either, and I’m pretty sure it didn’t feature 3D.

Turns out that Coppola’s experiment has been carried out on far too small a scale to really prove anything. I wonder how long it will be before somebody else dabbles with these ideas?
