A truly innovative project. Public radio and television stations will no longer be the same after this brilliant collaboration with the local area ...at least in the U.S.A..

Hope this will be an inspiration for many other reality.

Reinvention Stories

Reinvention Stories | Documentary Landscapes | Scoop.it
In 2008, Forbes Magazine labeled Dayton, Ohio as one of the fastest dying cities in the nation. The GM plant had shuttered its doors, longtime residents were fleeing the city and those who stayed were trying to figure out, "What now?" Filmmakers Julia Reichert and Steve Bognar were like many Dayton residents, disappointed by the dismal labeling of their city. Dayton is a city of inventors, after all, home to the Wright Brothers and birthplace of inventions like the pop-top can and the first electronic cash register. But it was also a place struggling with unemployment and depopulation. They decided to head out into the city and start asking people what they had been doing since the recession hit. What were they before? What happened? Who did they become?
Justin Nalepa's insight:

"The launch of Act One, which follows the lives of six people as they begin that first step of reinvention and takes the audience on a journey through the city of Dayton, as seen through its residents." Zeega has teamed up with filmmakers Julia and Steve to deliver an interactive film experience.

MediaShift Idea Lab - Pop Up Archive Breathes New (Media) Life into Dusty Archives | PBS | Documentary Landscapes | Scoop.it

When we talk about the changing face of media on the web, archiving isn't generally the first subject to come up. As we were beginning Pop Up Archive, we grappled with the fact that it's hard to show the vibrant, innovative side of archiving. Historically, archives have been hands-off; this was necessary to preserve the artifacts. But digital artifacts can easily be shared: All you need is a will and the web.

 

We started this project because we believe in the power of voices from the past and in the importance of preserving those voices.
