Land of Opportunity: Interactive Design and Intervention

Land of Opportunity: Interactive Design and Intervention | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it

"One of the major challenges in interactive media confronting filmmakers—or any media maker—is a fundamental question of how to present a story in a non-traditional format. This was the case for Luisa Dantas and theLandofOpportunity (LoP) team, who recently were “struggling to articulate in creative visual terms what we want to do.”

mirmilla's insight:

"How to present a story in a non-traditional format": new skills for new documentaries? Or a typical issue of the documentary?

Why do i-docs matter? – Immerse

Why do i-docs matter? – Immerse | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it
In order to learn through interaction we need to step out of our simplistic notion of digital interactivity as “click and link.” We also need to switch our authorial model and move from being narrators to becoming architects — makers of spaces for others to explore and be transformed by. We need to create spaces of action, spaces of expansion, of opening and discovery, spaces that move toward the transition we want for our world.

The Fledgling Fund offers insights on funding virtual reality 

The Fledgling Fund offers insights on funding virtual reality  | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it

"People often ask me how, as a funder in the social issue documentary space, we are thinking about new forms and new technologies. It is a great question but doesn’t really have an easy answer. At the very least, we’re trying to understand the terms and the definitions.

Many projects grouped under the umbrella of “virtual reality” are in fact 360 videos, shot with various degrees of sophistication and very different than VR that is built on a gaming platform. At some level that is semantics, but still an important distinction, I think."

Story Maps & Co. The state of the art of online narrative cartography  

Story Maps & Co. The state of the art of online narrative cartography   | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it

"In November 2013, Google enhanced its mapping services by launching Tour Builder, an application dedicated to mapping stories. A year earlier, in October 2012, ESRI  had already created its own application for narrative mapping: Story Maps. The arrival of these two giants in the world of narrative cartography added to the already diverse field of online story mapping applications such as Neatline, Tripline, MapStory, Maptia, Trippermap, and Atlascine, pointing to a real surge in this new form of cartographic expression.

The different locations of the trajectory of a fictional hero or a migrant across multiple borders are straightforward to portray using these tools. However, it becomes much more complicated to map the emotions and perceptions experienced during these journeys, as well as the associated spatiotemporal structures unique to every story. Generally, space (and even time) is neither Cartesian, nor continuous in narratives. It varies due to the fluid structure of events, descriptions, memories, and the imaginary. Maps and stories simply do not have the same geography. Although the relevance of mapping stories for understanding social phenomena is increasingly recognized, it is worth asking at what point online story mapping applications can deal with the spatiotemporal complexity of stories."

"VR is changing not only the way we tell stories, but also the kinds of stories we are able to tell. Rich with empathy and human connection, directed by users and enabled by design thinking, it beckons creative thinkers with the potential to tell stories that no one has ever told. To boldly go where no one has gone before. To write the future."

Why 3D audio is the next big step for virtual reality

Why 3D audio is the next big step for virtual reality | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it
Almost 90 years ago, in October 1927, the art of storytelling took a dramatic turn when the first “talking picture” or “sound film” was released to audiences around the world. The Jazz Singer was a smash hit, earning more than $2.6 million as it captivated audiences with its Vitaphone technology, the era’s leading sound-on-disc system that would forever change the standard for in-theater experiences. Within just a year, filmmakers encouraged by the success of The Jazz Singer were already developing ways to advance in-theater audio beyond the use of discs and turntables and began migrating to sound-on-film. Regardless, the new multi-media era had been launched. The introduction of sound on top of moving pictures took people to a new dimension.
