The Reality Effect : A case study on potential disturbances that could expose a special effect (English)
Abstract [en]

This case study observes the relation between selected movie-viewers and special effects. The aim of this study is to find and define potential distractions that special effects could cause which in result can affect the filmic reality and viewer experience. With the help of a semi structured interview with an addition of a live showcasing of different outtakes of famous science fiction-movies we let our informants express the noticeable elements that they reacted to.

The answers are analysed by a systematic structure inspired by the grounded theory to give an overview of what our informants experienced. By the use of theories such as Perceptual Realism, Reality Effect and Cognitive Film Theory we found that disturbance within perceptual expectations and the visual whole to be the main contributing factors amongst our informants as to what causes a special effect to distract them from accepting the filmic reality.

Abstract [sv]

Denna fallstudie observerar förhållandet mellan valda filmtittare och specialeffekter. Syftet med denna studie är att hitta och definiera potentiella distraktioner som specialeffekter kan orsaka och som i sin tur kan påverka den filmiska verkligheten och tittarupplevelsen. Med hjälp av en semistrukturerad intervju utifrån en livevisning av olika uttag av kända science fiction-filmer låter vi våra informanter belysade märkbara elementen som de reagerade på.

Svaren analyseras utifrån en systematisk struktur inspirerad av grundad teori för att ge en överblick av vad våra informanter har upplevt. Genom att referera till teorier som perceptuell realism, verklighetseffekt och kognitiv filmteori fann vi att perceptuella förväntningar och den visuella helheten var de främsta bidragande anledningarna bland våra informanter om hur en specialeffekt påverkar deras acceptans av den filmiska verkligheten
