A Short History of Interactivity

A Short History of Interactivity | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it
This is no (r)evolution

"Each day there are more of us interactive storytellers. Because we enjoy the freedom of creating with fewer boundaries, because we could not take another “lean-back” century or because it is just that thing to explore right now. But it would be a great loss to engage in the craft of telling interactive stories without knowing where we come from. So there is, a bit of background "

"The original prototype of Klynt, created in 2008, was known as ‘Webdoc Editor’, and brought a ‘choose your own adventure’ function to online documentary narrative. The Honkytonk experiment was successful: the first interactive documentary to ever feature on Le Monde’s website, Journey achieved 1.5 million page views and won the Prix SCAM 2009 Digital Interactive Artwork award. The first public release of Klynt then came in 2011, and was developed in Flash."

Digital interaction? Make sure it’s a two-way street

Digital interaction? Make sure it’s a two-way street | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it
What we really mean by digital interaction is the act of getting the viewer, reader or listener to give something back as they consume our media. The play for eyeballs, clicks and time has become a complex sport.


"nteractive is a stupidly vague term. But many of us (including me) are guilty of overusing it, often in place of more functional words like ‘clickable’. Apply it to the physical world instead of the internet and it becomes laughable."


BBC - Blogs - College of Journalism

mirmilla's insight:

How many times have we found the so-called interactive documentaries "asking for a passive type of interaction with pre-written multiple choice"?

Resurrecting Multimedia from the mire of Transmedia - Journal - mikejones.tv

Resurrecting Multimedia from the mire of Transmedia - Journal - mikejones.tv | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it

"Words come and go, in and out of fashion. And when the topics of discussion are screen-production, screen-media, technology and narrative, words can fall out of fashion very quickly. 

 

Even those words that begin with clear intentions and a desire to be useful descriptors, can quickly be hijacked and malformed into contestants for the ongoing game of buzzword bingo. ‘Transmedia’ is just such a word. With the term ‘Trans’ simply meaning ‘to move’, the notion of Transmedia as “narratives that move across different media-forms”, it’s a perfectly apt description."

mirmilla's insight:

An interesting approach ... which can also be considered in the opposite direction from another interesting post of Mediastorm (I Hate ‘Multimedia’ http://bit.ly/12pTiRl)

 

Again, the words are struggling to chase the technological and social innovations.

The Interactive Documentary. Definition Proposal and Basic Features of the New Emerging Genre.

 

mirmilla:

Arnau Gifreu Castells explore some interesting topics of the new emerging genre, the so-called "interactive documentary".

 

The great work of Sandra Gaudenzi is increasingly revealing itself as a milestone in the field of studies on this topic.

 

In my opinion, attention should be paid not only on what are writing these scholars, but also on the scholars themselves. Looking at their online presence we wonder if we are faced with a host of critics who will become the new wave of authors such as Truffaut, Godard and Eric Rohmer.
We'd like. Let's see.
