An interactive documentary about the interactive documentary
"COME/IN/DOC - Collaborative Meta Interactive Documentary – is a transmedia meta- documentary that reflects on the interactive documentary.
There has been more and more production in the area of interactive nonfiction, and the documentary is one of the main formats that has been developed considerably in recent years, but more theoretical and practical exploration is needed.
This project aims to achieve a greater understanding of this new documentary format assuming that our period in history lends itself to a deeper reflection.
This initiative is based on the hypothesis that the interactive documentary is a new audiovisual format with specific characteristics. "
With this interesting meta idoc, Arnau Gifreu brings together his research on interactive documentary, involving all the key players who has been studying, experimenting and fostering this powerful audiovisual form.
Not only devoted to those who wonder what is an interactive documentary.
The visual language of a new medium is being discovered ... and games are playing a role.
“All we know is that traditional rules of filmmaking no longer apply,” Danfung said. “We’re focused on the technical aspect to begin with as there are still big challenges in the capture, workflow, and playback … but I think the even bigger challenge is the new visual language that is going to emerge.”
Last week's BRITDOC Impact Lab concluded with a look at cutting-edge assessment tools and emerging storytelling forms, as well as a vigorous debate what the doc film field needs to advance the assessment discussion.
The last question of the UX Series is the one million dollars question: how do we understand impact in an i-doc? What is the timeframe we should consider in the evaluation? Is it about the number of people exposed to our message? Is it about telling others about our documentary and issue? It is about changing […]
Unfortunately this is the last episode of the UX Series.
Truly loved the whole series and believe it has established - as never before in such a systematic way - the importance of usability & user experience in the i-doc production.
A reference for all those who revolve around the i-doc.
Recent documentary films like “The Missing Picture” and “Stories We Tell” are making clear how the form has expanded well beyond journalistic approaches.
"(...) documentary filmmakers, chafing at those rules, eager to broaden the variety of tools at their disposal and hoping to tell their stories to a wider audience, have been pushing aggressively at the boundaries of their genre. The traditional “A-roll, B-roll, talking heads” paradigm, influenced by journalism, is increasingly being challenged by experiments in which all of the standard features of the traditional documentary — like voice-over, music cues and narrative arcs based on real life — are being mutated or eschewed and devices from the world of fiction embraced."
"Le webdocumentaire est un genre relativement nouveau. On en trouve depuis 2004. Et c'est bien grâce à émergence de la notion de Web 2.0 et de ses évolutions que le Webdoc est devenu possible.
Bien entendu, il a ses codes et ses contraintes. Ce PDF est un survol de notions pour les débutants, qui fût présenté lors du 11ème Festival International du Film documentaire Océanien (FIFO) à Papeete, Tahiti, en Février 2014."

It was a lively panel and we packed the house.I had a few takeaways from the panel I…
Avatar Secrets - an interactive documentary for the iPad – explores the complexities of human connection in the wired world, examining the evolving nature of community, relationships, empathy and interdependence in the real world, and in the digital frontier. I caught up with Ramona ahead of her talk at i-Docs 2014 to find out more about …
"An interesting thing about contemporary media is just how much of it is factual. From journalism to social media, YouTube to reality TV we are surrounded by media that claims to be true. Often this content has a definite agenda; it wants to persuade us, make us click, join in and pass it on. How can we understand our changing relationship to factual media? And why is documentary scholarship well placed to help us do so? Kate Nash explores new interactive dimensions to documentary that may encourage wider engagement."

"La radio change ! La radio se mêle aux autres médias, et les interfaces réclament désormais un design d’interaction adapté. Mais reste-t-il encore quelque chose des spécificités de la radio ? Du flux et du principe d’écoute notamment ? Quelles réponses le design d’interaction peut-il apporter à ces questions ? Les interfaces webdoc peuvent-elles porter l’oralité des documentaires radiophoniques ?"
