Between the Lines: Storytelling in the New Landscape - i-Docs

Between the Lines: Storytelling in the New Landscape - i-Docs | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it

"This session (...) looked at the relationship between technology and storytelling, it’s function within the creation of non-linear narratives and the continued role of “old” storytelling telling methods." I-Docs

 

"Each technological change in filmmaking has influenced the way stories are crafted. Adapting to these new technologies has repeatedly been presented as a revolutionary new way of storytelling. The first films shot with handheld cameras allowed unprecedented access to events, and later, digital cameras made it cheaper to produce films. Now, with opportunities offered by new media, stories can be told in a non-linear fashion through different platforms, or made interactive. Do these new technologies truly revolutionize the way we document the world, or do they merely change the relationship between the maker and the viewer? Do the old methods of storytelling still apply to interactive or non-linear documentaries?

A Short History of Interactivity

A Short History of Interactivity | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it
This is no (r)evolution

"Each day there are more of us interactive storytellers. Because we enjoy the freedom of creating with fewer boundaries, because we could not take another “lean-back” century or because it is just that thing to explore right now. But it would be a great loss to engage in the craft of telling interactive stories without knowing where we come from. So there is, a bit of background "

WiREDMŌV: is this the future of interactive documentary? | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it

"Although interactive documentaries are slowly gaining more recognition, their reach is often limited to academic circles, interactive documentary makers, or small communities already engaged with the field.

Michael Blackledge is looking to change that with his new project WiREDMŌV; a platform that is intended to educate the public about interactive documentary and assist interactive documentary makers with distribution.

Sandra Gaudenzi spoke to him about his inspirations, the difficulties facing the project and his hopes for the future:"

Ingrid Kopp: A Field Guide to Interactive Storytelling - i-Docs

Ingrid Kopp: A Field Guide to Interactive Storytelling - i-Docs | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it
Now with a lot of these interactive projects you really have to think about that. You are having to think about things like user experience design. A really interesting designer called Jason Brush, who is also a filmmaker, said, which really stopped me in my tracks, “If you think about editing as sculpting with time, you are sculpting with time. Your film is always that shape, it is 16:9 maybe 4:3, it is an aspect ratio. Within that, you are sculpting with the time to create your film. Now what you are doing with interactive projects is you are sculpting with both time and space, and you are shaping for use.”

LEARN DO SHARE Paris 2014

"With the Learn Do Share events, we provide an environment where people can come, be creative and connect with other individuals to experiment. A lot of it involves the process of prototyping – trying something, failing fast, and learning from that failure. We’re designing the event with the people that we want to reach instead of just designing it for them. "

We could debate what documentary is now, and why the term so stubbornly persists. Alternatively, we might ask what is it about documentary that is being invoked and potentially expanded in the interactive domain.

"formal and aesthetic qualities are no doubt facilitated through technology. “The sheer huge shift that has taken place in technology and access in the last 15—maybe 20—years,” said critic Geoff Pevere, “has led to an increase in the number of documentaries, and style and narrative innovation."

Discussing interactive documentary at the Lemesos Documentary Festival

Discussing interactive documentary at the Lemesos Documentary Festival | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it

"I think there are two things to learn from this; firstly, the most successful interactive projects I have encountered are exactly that, interactive. They have built the project, shot the footage and designed the experience for an interactive outcome, not an afterthought.

(...) my second point; don’t create an interactive, online experience for the sake of it – think of your content and whether it’s worth the endeavour and whether the outcome will really add anything to your overall project."

Why interactive? | In Media Res

Why interactive? | In Media Res | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it

 

"In Media Res is dedicated to experimenting with collaborative, multi-modal forms of online scholarship. Our goal is to promote an online dialogue amongst scholars and the public about contemporary approaches to studying media. In Media Res provides a forum for more immediate critical engagement with media at a pace closer to how we experience mediated texts.

 

Each weekday, a different scholar curates a 30-second to 3-minute video clip/visual image slideshow accompanied by a 300-350-word impressionistic response. We use the title "curator" because, like a curator in a museum, you are repurposing a media object that already exists and providing context through your commentary, which frames the object in a particular way. The clip/comment combination are intended both to introduce the curator’s work to the larger community of scholars (as well as non-academics who frequent the site) and, hopefully, encourage feedback/discussion from that community."

mirmilla's insight:

All this week is dedicated to the interactive documentary.
