Data as a Narrative Device – 'A Means to an End and not the End itself' 

Data as a Narrative Device – 'A Means to an End and not the End itself'  | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it

"There’s so much data available in the world and it is there for being used. It is how we as storytellers decide to interpret that and put a human face and condition on it. At the end of the day, the data, while it might be interesting or cool at the moment, does not give us an emotional response on its own. So the question is: How do we connect data to individual human beings so that people engage with them emotionally. That is generally what has the impact."

For Katie Edgerton (MIT’s Open Documentary Lab)

the key differentiator between internet-based documentaries and theatrical docs is this issue of narrative.

 

The web and the documentary storytelling can take advantage of their own strengths, but transform the documentary genre as we were used to.

 

A topic to investigate.
