Why it’s time to rethink visual storytelling on the web from the bottom up | Audiovisual 2.0 | Scoop.it

excerpt:

 

I AM NOT SAYING WE SHOULD STOP DOING ONLINE VIDEO.BUT I AM WONDERING IF THERE IS A WHOLE NEW MEDIUM WAITING TO BE INVENTED?

 

I'm thinking of something visual, built of and for the web. It uses the internet to its greatest strengths, not just as a platform for other media.

 

Amazing stories, fiction and non-fiction, that come alive, not because of flashy interactivity or glossy photography, but because they embrace the true nature of the web.

 

It's something built with the context and expectations of a laptop, tablet or smartphone user in mind.

 

It's canvas is not the screen, but the web browser and its perhaps its technicians are developers (as opposed to the chemists and engineers of cinema and television). It's simple, about substance, not style. Perhaps its subcompact. Or maybe it's epic.
