Interactive, purposeful storytelling meets Virtual Reality at Learn Do Share London with ‘Meet Lucy’

Interactive, purposeful storytelling meets Virtual Reality at Learn Do Share London with ‘Meet Lucy’ | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it
“I think technology acts as a trigger, it invites audiences to open new fictional doors that immediately transports them to another level of consciousness. It allows further engagement; it provokes new thoughts and connections. But that doesn’t mean that technology itself can make stories better; that magic is only in the hands of the teller/creator itself”.

"The original prototype of Klynt, created in 2008, was known as ‘Webdoc Editor’, and brought a ‘choose your own adventure’ function to online documentary narrative. The Honkytonk experiment was successful: the first interactive documentary to ever feature on Le Monde’s website, Journey achieved 1.5 million page views and won the Prix SCAM 2009 Digital Interactive Artwork award. The first public release of Klynt then came in 2011, and was developed in Flash."

Julieta Romero's curator insight, August 7, 9:59 AM

I proudly present to you the first edition of  the science and history interactive magazine EPOS, The Kaiser's war. EPOS is my first experience as an interactive storyteller and multimedia producer. When designing EPOS we had a clear idea in mind: We wanted to create a new reading experience, far beyond the conventions of  newspapers and magazines.

That said, our biggest challenge was to create an immersive atmosphere in which people could, through a seamless interaction, discover a rich array of pictures, videos and motion graphics. The result is a far more impressive experience than a print magazine could ever offer.

Reflections on the Evolving State of the Interactive Documentary | Sunny Side

Reflections on the Evolving State of the Interactive Documentary | Sunny Side | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it

"Tom Perlmutter, former Chairman of the National Film Board of Canada, has spearheaded a sweeping digital transformation in NFB film production; with many groundbreaking films and Web documentaries that make use of transmedia techniques. To Perlmutter, the digital landscape is teeming with unimaginable possibilities for Interactive Documentary."

 

"And even though it has been argued that the digital world does as much to divide by tribalizing as it does to connect, my own feeling is that we are actually in a movement to something else.  I think that there is inherent in living with the technology in the ways we do and in the ways that it is evolving  a very important shift in the ways that we know what it is to know.  We are blundering through this transformation, doing it in fits and starts.  But where it is leading us is to some kind of inverse Jungianism.  Not a collective unconscious. But a collective consciousness.

For that very reason the interactive work is becoming the artwork of our age."

"Le Blog documentaire délaisse un peu le documentaire et son adéquation (ratée ou réussie) avec Internet pour une immersion dans la création web pure. Voici donc un article évolutif qui tentera d’identifier les ressources interactives les plus pertinentes pour répondre à cette question, basique : comment faire interagir l’internaute pour que son action soit la plus naturelle et la plus nécessaire possible à la narration ? Question qui prend d’ailleurs parfois, pour les concepteurs interactifs, la forme d’une tempête intense sous les crânes débouchant généralement sur un mal de crâne carabiné…"

"The very first generation of the web was still fairly passive. There was interaction, but it was at the level of a Choose Your Own Adventure book. Ultimately the experience is what we prepared for you. But what has become especially exciting and daunting and a little scary is how data has begun to change everything."
