Virtual reality filmmakers are discovering new things about the power of audio | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it
The stereotype goes that when directors are figuring out how to frame a shot, they extend their arms, create a rectangle using their thumbs and index fingers, and peer through that box.

Mobile reporting has great potential, but where are the journalists?

Mobile reporting has great potential, but where are the journalists? | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it

A plea for mobile journalism, by Nicolas Becquet, head of digital platforms, L'Echo

 

"If you're still not sure about the potential of mobile journalism, an experiment put together by Swiss public broadcaster RTS provides a telling case study. Swiss journalist Nicolae Schiau followed five refugees from the Syrian border to Europe. Equipped with a phone and a GoPro, he recounted his journey in real time – an inventive and immersive use that perfectly illustrates the philosophy of mobile journalism."

5 Takeaways About Interactive Documentaries from IDFA’s DocLab

5 Takeaways About Interactive Documentaries from IDFA’s DocLab | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it
The International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam’s (IDFA’s) DocLab conference and exhibit, the most well-established international showcase for interactive documentary, featured plenty of buzz (bacon ice cream made by growing meat in a petri dish! a coffin equipped with odors evoking famous deaths!), a lot of virtual reality and some provocative insights. But we were still looking at experiments more than models.  After all, the theme of the event, “Seamless Reality,” was illustrated with a glitchy version of an Internet cat.

Quand les interfaces racontent une histoire… — Interactivité & Transmedia

Quand les interfaces racontent une histoire… — Interactivité & Transmedia | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it
une (bonne) interface ne se contente pas de « dire », elle « fait ». Elle n’est pas seulement un écrin, un présentoir que l’on doit concevoir uniquement selon les dernières tendances du design. Elle traduit une pensée, un mouvement et elle devient ainsi une « performance » qui transforme le statut de ceux qui émettent le message, et de ceux qui le reçoivent.
Une interface narrative est donc un acte qui transforme ses créateurs comme ses utilisateurs. Une transformation qui sous-tend bien souvent un contrat d’un nouveau genre passé avec le public.

Documentary as co-creation | Stories of Our Shared World

Documentary as co-creation | Stories of Our Shared World | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it
Mandy Rose is co-Director of i-Docs and Director of the University of the West of England’s Digital Cultures Research Centre.
In her presentation for Conducttr Conference 2015, she discussed how digital creative technologies, the online network, and accessible production tools have produced a new context for the documentary project of reflecting and critiquing our shared world.
Mandy shows how this has enabled participatory practices that were at the edges of 20th century documentary to come the fore in a range of contemporary co-creative work with “the people formerly known as the audience”.
