Video Interview | William Uricchio defines Interactive Documentary | Open Documentary Lab at MIT | Visioni e Linguaggi | Scoop.it

"Arnau is in the process of interviewing a number of practitioners, scholars, and students of interactive documentary about the state of the field. He will be posting select clips on the OpenDocLab website. First up is Part 1 of an interview with OpenDocLab Principal Investigator William Uricchio.!

 

 

"In this series we focus on the theoretical part of the study of interactive documentary. We will conduct video interviews with the main experts in the field based on six key questions:

(1) the definition, how would they define the interactive documentary;

(2) the evolution of the form, whether they believe that the interactive documentary is a natural evolution of the linear documentary;

(3) the change in the logics and dynamics, if they believe there is a change in the logics of production, distribution and exhibition;

(4) the role of the author, if they believe that the role of the author is threatened;

(5) the business model; and (6) their views on the production, research and events organized by countries that are active in this field, placing special emphasis on Canada and France."

When documentary and technology converge - Moments of Innovation

When documentary and technology converge   -        Moments of Innovation | Visioni e Linguaggi | Scoop.it
MIT’s Open Documentary Lab and IDFA’s DocLab have joined together to put the long story of documentary innovation into perspective, and to speculate about its future.

 

The best  surveys - exploration ever seen on the web about the history of documentary from the point of view of the relationship between technology and representation.

Great job.

 

excerpts:

 

We take an expansive view of documentary, and are above all interested in the pas de deux between representation and technology, and the resulting capacity to see the world with new eyes.

 

We are interested in history, in connecting the dots between our latest endeavors and those conceptual pioneers and technological prototypes that came before them. We consider innovation both in the creative application of new technologies and in the creative impulse that lead documentarians to invent new technologies.

 

We are interested in continuities and disruptions, in tracking down origins and inspirations. Although our theme is evolutionary, we do not assume that recent instances are better than earlier ones – they are different, and our goal is to recall those earlier instances, to learn from and to celebrate them.

 

For these reasons, MIT’s Open Documentary Lab and IDFA’s DocLab have joined together to put the long story of documentary innovation into perspective, and to speculate about its future.
