LucaVanin - It can have the same connotation of untruth in the west; just depends on context (and who's paying!) In Entertainment, of course, no one worries about superficial truth. Even (especially?) in Reality TV. What matters is the universal truth that stories can deliver. That is the real litmus test of truth.

These 10 short interactive films are amazing. They are all unqiue, employing different methods for viewers to engage with the story.

 

My colleague Mark Goldman reminded me of this piece. I'd seen it earlier but not had the time to dig into it. I took the time today to do so, and am glad I did. I think you will be amazed also.

 

Enjoy the many ways stories can be told -- especially using different techniques and technologies. You don't need all these bells and whistles, but I bet you'll get ideas for ways you want to share some of your stories.

Virtual Reality (VR) storytelling is a hot topic today, and this article talks about the latest research in immersive storytelling.

 

It's one thing to use VR at IKEA or Lowe's home improvement stores to test out furniture and designs. It's quite another to share a story in VR. This post shares insights gained from recent research about what works and what doesn't in VR storytelling.

 

Stuff like:

  1. What is the audience's role in VR? It's fascinating what they discover!
  2. How does the position you stand in and the engagement you have in VR impact the effect of the story?
  3. What do visual constraits have on the story experience?

 

VR is a medium that truly changes storytelling. There are lots of opportunities and lots of pitfalls/dangers. Read this article to keep up to date on this trend.

Hollow is a digital documentary that lives through its protagonists and it is full of good ideas - even though the design and UX are not as tight as, let's say Pinepoint.

 

It includes some nice features and in this article, the creators come back on the production production, both from a writing and designing standpoints. Good read

What journalists can learn from Pokémon Go

What journalists can learn from Pokémon Go | Hitchhiker | Scoop.it
From a reporting standpoint: Are there ways to report on the most trafficked locations? Are there ways to lead people playing the game to their next action? This seems like a perfect place for advertising, but it’s also one where information sharing can potentially flourish. Perhaps players visit a location, and then see archival news stories related to that location, or learn more about a place and are then prompted to take an action. Or perhaps players notice something in that location that’s worthy of a news story in and of itself.

How could newsrooms make themselves available to the many people who are participating in augmented reality spaces who are now part of a much larger network?

The First-Ever Snapchat Movie is Here, and it's Horrifying—Go Behind the Scenes | Hitchhiker | Scoop.it

Minna Kilpeläinen's insight:
Snapchat movie Sickhouse was a real success. "Everyone was hooked. People trust that what they are seeing on their snap stories is real", said he director Hannah Macpherson. One key was to cast a protagonist who already was a social media pop star (Andrea Russett). She posted the videos from her own account.

Emily Buder:  "We go behind the scenes of the first Snapchat movie, a real-time horror flick."

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, June 27, 11:57 AM

Sickhouse - the first SnapChat-based film--brought to mind Blair Witch Project.  Both are revolutionary in their use of media to capture authenticity, breaking the fourth wall, and capturing the audience's imagination by fiddling with reality vs. fiction.  Using SnapChat is a clever device to make the film timely and raw.  

 

First adopters always have the advantage of challenging the audience's existing mental models about where and how reality ends and fiction begins.  This is a nice metaphor for social technologies as an extension of the social space rather than "some other place."  It is exactly that understanding that made the initial launch so powerful.

 

SnapChat also demands a 'Heminwayesqe' brevity and succinctness to scene construction, especially in real time.  Creating a horror film is a bit of a cheat as all that heightened anxiety increases the "need to know" among the audience that encourages following the story through.  Nevertheless, with so many moving parts, it makes sense to use a genre with wide socioemotional appeal.

 

The irony is that it didn't all disappear in the SnapChat way, and thus challenges how we understand SnapChat as well.  I have wondered for some time, given the creativity that SnapChat unleashes, how long people will be willing to just let their mini-artworks go into the ether.  When we create, it is part of us.  We have a long history of documenting acts of creativity because it is how we share our most human qualities.
