"The report reveals the perspectives of a viewing audience of professionals working in federal, state, and local government agencies that deal with education and teen homelessness. For this audience, the intimate stories of young people experiencing homelessness were the most compelling and emotionally engaging elements of the film, compared with statistics about the issue. Audience members believe the film can help them in their professional missions, even while they acknowledge the challenges of funding and infrastructure needed to support young people living on the streets."

What Is Virtual Reality? — Medium

What Is Virtual Reality? — Medium | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it
Virtual Reality is everywhere again, and that’s a problem. Almost immediately after the new trend began, people started shopping 360° immersive video as VR. It is not. “Surround” movies are marketed as VR. They are not. “VR Storytelling” is a misnomer; it is not structurally VR. “Second Life” is described as VR. It is not. When the term is appropriated, its meaning disintegrates.

Act Normal: Hybrid Tendencies in Documentary Film

Act Normal: Hybrid Tendencies in Documentary Film | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it

"On the release of Joshua Oppenheimer’s Act of Killing in UK cinemas some excitement is emerging about the possibilities of new hybrid forms of documentary cinema.

Aside from this admiration, the film has provoked reactions of both shock and awe, effects that can be attributed to a recent lack of public critical engagement and discussion of the documentary form. 

This article is a minor attempt to create a current overview of the hybrid documentary by outlining some of influences and difficulties of these forms."

The transmedia documentary can be used to assemble and engage a mass audience, while also providing an important starting point for thinking about how discussions of new media have come to shape the cultures around documentary film.

Une typologie du webdocumentaire orientée utilisateur - Nicolas Bole

Une typologie du webdocumentaire orientée utilisateur - Nicolas Bole | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it

"Depuis que le webdocumentaire s’est fait un nom, on entend beaucoup parler des nouvelles formes de narration induites par l’avènement du web et du très haut débit permettant l’utilisation de fichiers lourds (son, infographie et bien sûr vidéo). (...) 

Mais que recouvre réellement cette nouveauté souvent décrite?

Peut-on vraiment dire que le web a créé une nouvelle façon de se voir raconter des histoires pour le spectateur?"

mirmilla's insight:

In this pretty interesting analysis, Nicolas Bole identifies four ways in which the audience enjoy the webdocumentary:

narrative, déambulation (perambulate?), ludo-action, documentary experience 

 

Must-read.

Living in the long tail: On the state of documentary film | The Ripple Effect

Living in the long tail: On the state of documentary film | The Ripple Effect | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it

mirmilla:

this study explores the factors that contribute to "the growth in documentary production".

What puzzles me is the reaction of surprise at the fact that "the directors are more interested in the social rather than financial success."
In reality, those who insist on making documentaries they do it though the economic aspects.
Is not by chance we often talk of mission or commitment.
