TFI LIVE Podcast - Episode #1

"Yes, you heard right, we've started a podcast!

Why? Well, we're always thinking of new ways to showcase the projects that have gone through TFI, inform you on what we're up to and highlight the innovative thinkers that are in our communinty; our hope is TFI LIVE will touch on all of this (and more).

For our first episode we spotlight Picture Motion (starts at the 00:37 mark), a company that specializes in using social media, grassroots screenings and partnership development to create social action campaigns for documentary and narrative films (they've done so already for films like Bully, TFI alum God Loves Uganda and Fruitvale Station). We chat with their Director of Communications, Allie Hoffman, and their Director of Digital Strategy, Darcy Heusel.

 

Then we talk to 2012 TFI New Media Fund grantee (and recently announced byFilmmaker Magazine as one of the 25 New Faces of Independent Film) Elaine McMillion about her web documentary, Hollow (15:35)."

PAST, PRESENT, FUTURE OF INTERACTIVE DOCS - Caspar Sonnen @TFI Interactive

"While most of our attention was turned to the impending doom of Wall Street in 2008,Caspar Sonnen was out creating the IDFA DocLab which would help clear a path for incredible works like Bear 71, Alma and A Journal of Insomnia, which lead the way to a higher profile for the exhibition of interactive documentary. Here Sonnen looks at this expanding genre."

mirmilla's insight:

Language and technology ... history has shown that often these are not synchronized. But when the language gets the technology, the results become History.

2013 TFI Interactive: The Aatsinki Season

"Following her attention-getting debut documentary Beetle Queen Conquers Tokyo,Jessica Oreck has recently set her lens on reindeer herders with the doc Aatsinki: The Story of Arctic Cowboys (which played at this year's Tribeca Film Festival).

But along with that Oreck also created The Aatsinki Season, an online companion to the film that was developed during a P.O.V. hackathon.

This episodic online doc takes us deeper into the lives and stories of the characters we find in Oreck's film.

Here Oreck and Mike Knowlton, co-founder of Murmur, the company behind the interactive design and programming of the site, talk about the project. So "cowboy up" as Knowlton puts it, and check out this video."

 

 

mirmilla's insight:

Seven minutes presentation to explain the genesis of The Aatsinki Season. Shame about its brevity.
