For Moviegoers, The Net's Not Yet An Easy Option - New York Times

For Moviegoers, The Net's Not Yet An Easy Option - New York Times | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it

excerpts from this post dated back to 1998:

 

 ''Right now the Net is not a way to see movies,'' said Mayra Langdon Riesman, founder of Filmscouts (...) Digitized information contained in a movie, especially one with any action, is too vast to be handled by most personal computers and modems, which aren't capable of producing anything beyond rudimentary film quality.

(...)

 

Occasionally filmmakers show clips of works in progress, but Ms. Riesman said that the real value of the Internet to filmmakers was not as an exhibition site but as a production tool.

''People make a mistake when they try to adapt old media to the Net,'' she said. ''This is new media.''

In the future, she added, the Web might be used to make new kinds of films in different ways. "

 

mirmilla's insight:

It seems that a century has passed and instead it's only been 15 years.

Some aberrations are still present, but considering the rushing technological change speed ...it is also understandable that thinking is slower

Society is Numb to Traditional Media - Danfung Dennis - Condition One

Danfung Dennis, well known for directing the documentary "Hell and Back Again", share some of his principles on technology and emotion:

 

"We're moving to this era of mobile and tablet computing

the changes are the same to when radio moved to broadcast, we had an opportunity to create an entirely format and new way of storytelling (…)

How do we redefine how we tell stories, how we connect and how we convey emotion?

The technology will drive the future of storytelling"

 

In 2011 Danfung Dennis "and three business partners co-founded the tech start-up Condition ONE to create an “immersive,” virtual reality-esque application for tablet devices that allows users to scroll around video footage with a wider field of vision." [from Kevin Ritchie post on Realscreen - http://bit.ly/PXhond ]

The Futures of Nonfiction Storytelling - MIT TechTV

The Futures of Nonfiction Storytelling - MIT TechTV | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it

Interesting panel held at MIT in November 2011.

 

From their experience, the four experts explain how technologies have brought to light new problems (eg, crowdsourcing used to identify dissidents in Iran), and new forms of project (eg providing a mosaic of experiences rather than creating separate groups opposed between them).

 

And if the panel is introduced by the moderator Jonathan Taplin with "The Crowd is Often Wrong" ... then it must be seen.
