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.

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.

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.
