    Abstract

    This study attempts to improve video viewing experiences by elucidating the mechanisms of evoking emotional responses focusing not on the video itself, but on the cognitive state of the viewers. The authors focused on empathy, which is considered to be the most important factor in evoking emotional responses, affected by the amount of both knowledge and engagement. The comparative experiment was conducted between two groups: one group was asked just to watch the video; the other group was asked the same but after experiencing a workshop where they were given an opportunity to acquire knowledge of and engage with the video subject matter. As a result, the participants with greater knowledge and engagement before viewing the video displayed a significantly higher level of emotional response on average. The knowledge obtained from this study will contribute to the improvement of the design process to evoke an emotional response in video viewing.
