About

The Korsakow System (pronounced ‘KOR-SA-KOV’) is an easy-to-use computer program for the creation of database films. It was invented by Florian Thalhofer, a Berlin-based media artist. Korsakow Films are films with a twist: They are interactive – the viewer has influence on the K-Film. They are rule-based – the author decides on the rules by which the scenes relate to each other, but s/he does not create fixed paths. K-Films are generative – the order of the scenes is calculated while viewing. And, as Florian likes to say, Korsakow is not a religion.

Here you will find a growing set of resources for all things Korsakow: Download the latest version for PCs and Intel Macs; view outstanding Korsakow Films in the Showcase; find answers to your basic or advanced questions in our Quick Start, Tutorials and Tips & Tricks sections or our FAQs; discuss Korsakow with other users in the Forums; read about the people behind Korsakow, below; hear about updates and related events; and, discover what a SNU is.

About

Power to the story.
By making it easy to put interaction into your content we can help you make much more powerful projects because:
  • Viewers spend more time on content if they can interact.
  • Viewers remember stuff better if they can interact.
  • Viewers keep returning to explore if they can interact.
  • Interaction means stats, which means knowledge to you.
  • Avoiding coding means you save time and money.
