A champion of nonlinear narratives: An interview with documentary filmmaker Florian Thalhofer

A champion of nonlinear narratives: An interview with documentary filmmaker Florian Thalhofer | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it

When Florian Thalhofer shows one of his interactive documentaries in theaters, he arms the audience with laser pointers. Whenever there is a choice of which clip to watch next, the crowd votes by aiming a glowing red dot, and the choice with the most dots wins.

Thalhofer, a documentary filmmaker based in Berlin, had to build his own software in order to deliver the kind of stories he wanted to tell. Now he offers that software for free online for small projects (larger projects require licensing), and he travels the world giving workshops on how to use it. Those workshops are less about the software, though, and more about his philosophy of storytelling, one that is decidedly nonlinear."

 

"A life in itself is so beautiful, and things go in one direction and then another direction. We are socialized in a very, very linear format with film. I think it’s the dominant structure that we have to deal with. So people at the moment enjoy very linear things. And this might change over time. I think it is a very slow process for people to get their head around. I think it takes at least a generation. We need to rewire the brain."

Fort McMoney is out today! David Dufresne tells us the whole story... | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it

 

"As Fort McMoney is officially launching today at IDFA, we thought our i-Docs community would be interested in an exclusive interview with its director, David Dufresne (previously known for Prison Valley). Fort McMoney speaks of the environmental issues behind the oil industry through the language of a collaborative docu-game – an ambitious challenge that the NBF, Arte and Le Monde where happy to take on board.

 

In this interview David Dufresne tells us more about what pushed him to embrace such a new narrative style, the challenges he had to face during the production and the budget he had at his disposal."

mirmilla:

An interview with Annabel Roux, one of the most active on the European interactive documentary scene and related, along with only a few others.
Among her many activities, she is curator of Scoop.it first person [http://bit.ly/OTbnUL], and has its own individual company (La fabrique du réel - http://bit.ly/OTaz2p).

 

I find very meaningful the set of her different skills and interests, an approach that goes beyond the limits of a knowledge related to specialized training.

 

For a new kind of documentary, a new craft on the horizon ...I hope!

The New Digital Storytelling Series: an interview with Vivek Bald

The New Digital Storytelling Series: an interview with Vivek Bald | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it

"I see the relationship of director and creative technologist(s) as roughly analogous to director and cinematographer, in the broad sense that the better a director knows what each of her or his crew members does (and can do), the better the director can communicate, the better the director can conceptualize what is and isn’t possible in a given situation, and the more creative the director can be. " Filmmaker Magazine

mirmilla's insight:

Documentary practice and basic knowledge of web production such as HTML coding, interface design, IA ...two key ingredients for Vivek Bald, the author of "Bengali Harlem" project

ARTE Radio : le documentaire sonore selon Silvain Gire

ARTE Radio : le documentaire sonore selon Silvain Gire | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it

"LeBlog documentaire est parti à la rencontre de Silvain Gire, le patron d’ARTE Radio qui donne une autre dimension aux documentaires (et aux fictions !) sonores depuis plus de 10 ans."

 

 

"Ce qui m’intéresse en général, c’est le dialogue entre une voix et un son. Le son est fondamental. ARTE Radio est là pour revaloriser l’écriture documentaire et notamment le son, c’est-à-dire tout ce que la voix ne dit pas. C’est l’environnement de la personne, son réel, ce dans quoi elle vit.

Le son a autant de choses à dire qu’une voix. Nous demandons toujours plus d’ambiances et de sons seuls à nos réalisateurs. Quand ils vont interviewer une personne, il faut qu’on l’entende chanter, marcher, faire la vaisselle : qu’on l’entende dans sa vie.

Ce son, cette ambiance, ces silences, c’est aussi la place de l’auditeur. C’est la possibilité qui est laissée à l’auditeur de contredire, de savourer, de comprendre ce que raconte la voix. Au cas contraire, la radio devient un ruban qui ne s’arrête jamais,"

mirmilla's insight:

In a world overloaded with images and high technology, the sound documentary finds its place focusing on experimentation. Great interest in this simple, yet powerful medium.

"Collaboration is key to interactive documentaries. You’re not just collaborating with video producers, but you’re working with writers, graphic designers, programmers, people fixated on user experience and promotion.  I wanted to be sure that the multimedia team in DC had a voice in the project early. So we brought them up to New York, and we had two days worth of brainstorming what the project would look like."

"Documentary has always been at the forefront of innovation says Canadian filmmaker Katerina Cizek whose latest project takes inspiration from a kid-lid favorite.."


"I think it’s no surprise that some of the most important innovation in new storytelling comes from documentaries.

We need as documentarians not only to tell stories about how technology changes our lives, but to use that technology to tell the story, too.

It’s not a digital revolution anymore--the digital revolution is over, and we’re in a digital age, and we need to understand how that’s rewiring us".

"Editor Joe Botana (@Zbutcher) and I [Eric Wise] interview Brett Gaylor, documentary filmmaker and director of Mozilla’s Popcorn.js project.

Brett talks about his background as a documentarian, his frustrations with the limitations of early Web distribution and how he convinced an Internet titan to care about the future of filmmaking."

Another confirmation (if there was any need) that innovation is almost always the result of different skills collaboration.

The idea of "interactivity as a 'story disruptor" is an old one & there are design strategies for interactivity that reverse that model. Must listen to the whole video(s) - bookmarking
