    This paper explores the relationship between the image and the narrative in virtual reality (VR) environments. It
    addresses three main issues; how we engage in images, how the VR technology can enhance this engagement
    and how narratives can maintain this engagement. We present an initial investigation into the development of a
    visual-narrative model to increase immersion and engagement in a VR environment and discuss the state of the
    art VR technology being developed by the Benogo project. Additionally, we propose a three-part study to elicit
    a set of design requirements to support the development of this visual-narrative model and report the initial stages of this study.
