siobhan-o-flynn's curator insight, July 10, 12:38 AM

“The web gives us, as directors, a lot of possibilities, freedom and creativity to tell stories in a new way,” the 46-year-old Dufresne (pictured, left) tells realscreen, adding that a broadcast version of Fort McMoney is in production.

“You don’t tell the same things in a TV version that you do in a web doc or game doc,” he says. “On the web, what is magical to me is that people feel they are part of the movie, part of the story – that they’re inside...."

i-Docs's insight:

'Hollow' is an interactive documentary that merges cinematic techniques with web-based storytelling to encourage a dialogue about the issues that small-town America faces. The project examines the lives of 30 individuals living in McDowell County, W.Va., an area that is representative of many boom-and-bust areas across the country. McDowell County has lost almost 80 percent of its population since 1950 and continues to lose more young people every year due to a lack of economic opportunity. This rural brain drain has left many counties across the nation with an aging demographic and failing infrastructure. However, many people—approximately 22,000—continue to live and work in McDowell. They feel a great sense of pride and belonging and believe they are there to help improve and move the county into the future.

Doc/Fest 2014: an insider's view of the Crossover Market - i-Docs

Doc/Fest 2014: an insider's view of the Crossover Market - i-Docs | Interactive Documentary (i-Docs) | Scoop.it
i-Docs's insight:

Every edition of Sheffield’s Doc/Fest is different, but for me this year was particularly special because I came with two hats: my usual i-doc observer one, and my new i-doc director/producer one. In other words: this year I presented a project to the Crossover Market and got selected. So, together with Mike Robbins from Helios Design Labs and Sarah Arruda, I presented Digital Me, a project in its infancy...

Justin Nalepa's curator insight, June 17, 11:30 AM

A very interesting look at the Crossover Market with emphasis on being a participant. Here's some quick take aways I found insightful:

 

1. On pitching your project - "It is a re-iterative process where you keep what seems to work and you change what does not feel right – you are concept testing though the eyes of the commissioning editors."

 

2. On user testing - " test your concept with your target audience."

 

3. An observation on the structure of the Crossover Market - " How much are we all victims of our own professional contexts, and therefore reiterating the old rather than inventing the new? ...

 I am wondering if a market for interactive narrative should not include more coders, designers and creative technologists that think, breath and speak in a non-linear world."

Can you think of a better place to do a hackathon?
i-Docs's insight:

This hack (which we are doing in partnership with Storycode Paris and Cross Video Days; and the support of NUMA and the cultural services of the French Embassy in the US) will focus on the creative process around new media storytelling, how to get from a one-line idea to a basic prototype and an efficient pitch. Each team will be assigned to a professional mentor and have access to masterclasses, which will facilitate the creative process and create a space for regular feedback. Projects will be judged by a prestigious jury, with the criteria focusing on each team’s storytelling approach, innovation and execution during the closing night of Tribeca Hacks <Paris>. The top three projects being presented during the Cross Video Days Festival, June 19-20.

The Awra Amba Experience: collaboration, crowd-funding and community - i-Docs | Interactive Documentary (i-Docs) | Scoop.it
i-Docs's insight:

The Awra Amba Experience is an incredible project which I first encountered at i-Docs 2012, where Paulina Tervo (project producer/director/lead) presented the initial stages of the interactive documentary and introduced us to this inspiring community. Two years on and the project is nearing the end of a crowd-funding campaign that aims to get the interactive documentary finished and online.

 

I caught up with Paulina and Serdar Ferit (director/ cinematographer/editor) to see how the project has developed and how  crowd-funding has affected their overall process.

i-Docs & beyond: 5 things to consider - i-Docs

At the end of March, i-Docs 2014 took place and although I documented the event through Storify, it’s been a struggle to pull together my key takeaways as Hot Docs, Webdox, i_doc Workshop and TFI Interactive seemed to continue so many of the themes and expand upon them in interesting ways.

So this has now become a much longer, two-part list of take-aways, full of great examples and worthwhile links – enjoy!
