Zeega's WEB DOC MANIFESTO

"There are many ways to express new ideas that can hopefully inspire others to challenge the traditional norms: published works, a landmark invention, a polarizing figure.

 

Well, we're not sure if this presentation by two of Zeega's founders, Jesse Shapins and James Burns, will go down as a milestone in transmedia, but their Web Documentary Manifesto… let's just say it was one of the more entertaining moments of the day.

 

Behold the revolution!"

How Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality Will Strengthen Storytelling and Revenue

How Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality Will Strengthen Storytelling and Revenue | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it
“Despite the experimentation, it’s clear that virtual reality is merely in the beginning stages,” according to the report. “Immense challenges remain: The consumer market remains incredibly small, with manufacturers still working on creating headsets that are high-quality, reasonably priced and do not give users motion sickness. Without market penetration, of course, revenue for content producers will remain elusive.”

Immersion is easier than action

Immersion is easier than action | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it
I can imagine documentaries that give users the ability to see their impact on the environment, and feel their own responsibility for it — rather than simply being an inert camera-head as in Clouds Over Sidra. If giving users the ability to impact an environment through their interactions seems contrary to the need for documentary to present things as they are, consider that any system of interaction is a simulation that necessarily makes an argument about how a space comes to be.

Data as a Narrative Device – 'A Means to an End and not the End itself' 

Data as a Narrative Device – 'A Means to an End and not the End itself'  | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it

"There’s so much data available in the world and it is there for being used. It is how we as storytellers decide to interpret that and put a human face and condition on it. At the end of the day, the data, while it might be interesting or cool at the moment, does not give us an emotional response on its own. So the question is: How do we connect data to individual human beings so that people engage with them emotionally. That is generally what has the impact."

These are some of the coolest experiments in digital news coverage of the 2016 Rio Olympics | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it
The Olympics are, like the quadrennial U.S. presidential election, the perfect opportunity for news organizations to experiment with new ways to present news online. The Games are a massive story, but the stakes are typically relatively low, and, perhaps most importantly, the date of the event is known years ahead of time. As a result, outlets have plenty of time to plan coverage and build out interactives.
