Prototyping with our Audience - Power To The Pixel

Prototyping with our Audience - Power To The Pixel | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it
Interactive stories and experiences are only good and relevant in the way they are manipulated by the end user. They are conceived for someone to crawl inside, circulate, manipulate, hesitate, move things around, alter, react, lie down, maybe daydream… Prototyping the technology is not enough: we need to prototype the user experience with the user...

Between the Lines: Storytelling in the New Landscape - i-Docs

Between the Lines: Storytelling in the New Landscape - i-Docs | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it

"This session (...) looked at the relationship between technology and storytelling, it’s function within the creation of non-linear narratives and the continued role of “old” storytelling telling methods." I-Docs

 

"Each technological change in filmmaking has influenced the way stories are crafted. Adapting to these new technologies has repeatedly been presented as a revolutionary new way of storytelling. The first films shot with handheld cameras allowed unprecedented access to events, and later, digital cameras made it cheaper to produce films. Now, with opportunities offered by new media, stories can be told in a non-linear fashion through different platforms, or made interactive. Do these new technologies truly revolutionize the way we document the world, or do they merely change the relationship between the maker and the viewer? Do the old methods of storytelling still apply to interactive or non-linear documentaries?

This Is Localore - a documentary about the project for a new 21st-century Public Media

"Step behind the scenes with the producers of Localore, a public media production by AIR (airmedia.org). See how twelve intrepid makers led year-long multimedia project at 10 radio and TV stations across the country—reaching and involving a broad swath of communities via broadcast, digital and street media. Localore is supported by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the MacArthur Foundation, the Wyncote Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts. Learn more at Localore.net"

 

 

mirmilla's insight:

A truly innovative project. Public radio and television stations will no longer be the same after this brilliant collaboration with the local area ...at least in the U.S.A..

Hope this will be an inspiration for many other reality.

Video interview with artist Jonathan Harris

New Profile: artist Jonathan Harris

by Submarine Channel

 

excerpt: 

"American technological artist Jonathan Harris is well-known for combining a love for computer science, storytelling and statistics to experiment and create beautiful projects that reflect on human society – think back to We Feel Fine, The Whale Hunt, and Balloons of Bhutan, to name just a few. In the last year alone, he launched an inspiring community for storytellers called Cowbird, whose mission is to document the human experience." 

mirmilla's insight:

 

The director of "I Love Your Work" tells the philosophy and approach to reality that drive his work.

 

Interesting point of view on the interactive documentary from the artist who expanded the webdoc horizon (5':58")
