Found-footage films tend to be quite interactive in the way they’re shot, because we’re constantly on the protagonists’ level. We don’t worry about missing particular events, or not understanding what is going on, because we are, in a sense, the protagonist. No, we don’t make any decisions or have any influence on the direction of the film. How could we? But we feel closer to the characters because we can see life through their eyes, and Chronicle wants us to see what the life of Andrew Detmer is like.
