Abstract:


A film provides inexperienced spectacles for audiences, and they watch the film to gain new experience. Moviemakers have made an effort to survive in many forms of mass media. The effort has been developed more progressive than other media. First, they actively embrace new technology to differentiate themselves from the other media, and present entertaining and interesting shows. The virtual, digital technology visualizes new time and space elaborately, providing audience the spectacle experiences. It consists of Computer Graphic, which visualizes the virtual world as reality, and new digital technology, which produces entertaining show. The new digital technology, which is adopted from the early Hollywood’s blockbuster movies, now plays key role in contemporary movies beyond the realm of spectacles. Virtual, digital technology, combined with cinematic imagination and new technology, not only contribute to entertainment, but also influences on the narrative of movie. The audience reacts mostly to the visualization of digital technology. This study examines how digital technology is used for GUI (Graphical User Interface) in movie. To analyze the GUI pattern that works in Hollywood’s blockbuster movies after “Minority Report”, which presents the new interaction between human and computer, the blockbusters are reviewed by GUI type that is visualized in the movies. Furthermore, it gives us the knowledge about the visual media that affects audience with visual elements. As the new and visual technology is developed and attracts audience, it will contribute us to understand why our society clings to the appearance.
