I am always appreciative of documentaries that push the boundaries of the form, but experiencing them leaves me wondering too often: Can interactive documentaries make us feel something in the same way that traditional cinema can?

Multimedia, Crossmedia, Transmedia… What’s in a name? | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it

"I’ve written elsewhere that we’re living through a Cambrian Explosion in the ecology of media. Suddenly — if you think about the last few decades as a fragment of the timeline that stretches back to before cave painting — we can tell stories in so many media forms and on so many media channels that it would make Richard Wagner jealous enough to steal a magic ring. We can make our kunstwerk more gesamt than ever before."

Clicking on the real: telling stories and engaging audiences through interactive documentaries. | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it

"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."

"The simplest way I think of understanding the Korsakow System is that it is a system for making what I think of as hypertext movies. It lets you make links between nodes like you do in HTML, except the links are not written out as HREFs but use keywords. Each clip in your project These keywords can also be attached to time."

"Transmedia Indiana was a big proof of concept idea, one meant to show what can be built with a willing partner, experienced designers, a clear direction, and an interdisciplinary team.


This is a giant project, one that illustrates a variety of threads that can be pulled to create smaller versions of digital, experiential stories."

COME/IN/DOC - Interactive Documentary: learn, listen, produce

COME/IN/DOC - Interactive Documentary: learn, listen, produce | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it
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. "

 

More info: http://bit.ly/OC0TNk

mirmilla's insight:

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.

Documentary filmmaker explores the new visual language of virtual reality | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it
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.”

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.

‘The Missing Picture’ and Other Films Rethink Documentaries

‘The Missing Picture’ and Other Films Rethink Documentaries | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it
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."

C'est Quoi le Web Documentaire ? - Fifo 2014

"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."
