This paper describes very early work in progress whose objective is to develop new, cognitively informed computational models of creativity in the context of the generation of cinematic narrative — narrative that is told within 3 dimensional (3D) virtual environments. Motivated by narrative theoretic models of narrative structure and psychological models of narrative comprehension, we are developing techniques for creating stories and the cinematic techniques needed to convey them to users. These techniques will use these models to search for narratives that are at once coherent and surprising, satisfying these two constraints to generate creative narratives.
