Adaptive Storytelling: An In-Depth Look at 4 Social Innovation Projects

Adaptive Storytelling: An In-Depth Look at 4 Social Innovation Projects | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it
We are all storytellers.

You might think of stories themselves as extensions of our individual and collective conscience; they not only provide the connective layers for understanding the way we see things, but for contextualizing them. Stories also allow us to share data as a social currency. More on that in a moment.

In the work I do, I tend to think of applied uses of stories, or storytelling, in three primary modalities which are not mutually exclusive:

* Dialogic

* Immersive

* Participatory

The ‘Snow Fall’ effect and dissecting the multimedia longform narrative | MultimediaShooter | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it

excerpt:

“It’s become a verb in our newsroom,” a New York Times graphics producer tells me. “People are now saying, ‘can we snowfall this story?’”

Snow Fall: The Avalanche at Tunnel Creek has become a watershed in multimedia journalism. The story by John Branch recently won a Pulitzer prize in feature writing, and as noted by the Pulitzer website it was “a project enhanced by its deft integration of multimedia elements.”

Interactive documentary – what does it mean and why does it matter?

Interactive documentary – what does it mean and why does it matter? | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it
Having just convened our fourth i-Docs symposium, it feels like an opportune moment to reflect on what is meant by ‘interactive documentary’ and why we at i-Docs have always seen it as a way of framing a set of possibilities, as opposed to being a specific medium, genre or platform. This seems prescient in light of the ‘immersive turn’ with interactive work starting to become more closely defined in response to it. At the heart of this is the current interest in emergent VR technology, a more specific medium or platform, within which more easily definable genres are likely to emerge. This is contributing to a rising interest in ‘experiential storytelling’ and ‘alternate realities’ and a potential re-framing of what is meant by interactivity.
