Description Soft Cinema is a dynamic media installation constructed from a large media database and custom software. The software edits movies in real time by choosing the elements from the database using the systems of rules. It decides what appears on the screen, where, and in which sequence; it also chooses music tracks. In short, Soft Cinema can be thought of as a semi-automatic VJ (Video Jockey)- or more precisely, as a FJ (Film Jockey)
