Jasmina holds a PhD in Interactive Screenwriting from University
College Dublin. The emphasis of the research was on screenwriting
in computer games, webseries and interactive film/drama, and
discovering if, where and how ‘classical’ screenwriting practices
apply in this new context of digital interactive media, and
identifying new rules and configurations.
Jasmina actively presents her findings on the subject of Interactive
Screenwriting at various conferences (see below) and has
published widely (see below) on a range of topics in film and
digital media.
Publishers bfi (Palgrave MacMillan) have commissioned Jasmina
to write a book on the influences of games and digital media on
contemporary film, and the publishing date of 'Ludic Cinema' is
anticipated for late 2013.
Jasmina guest lectures at the Huston School of Film & Digital
Media and Filmbase (Dublin), at both undergraduate and masters
levels. Taught subjects include Screenwriting, Film Theory & History,
Game Studies and Digital Media Theory.
In May 2009, Jasmina was awarded the ‘Innovation in Teaching’
Award from UCD for her work on the Intersections in Film and
Digital Media module.
