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, 8:30 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."

Must read essay by Jason Brush on interactive documentary: 

 

"beyond curiosity, the medium of film benefits from interactivity as a way to extend the filmmaker’s creative voice. Interactivity presents new formal opportunities to tell stories. It presents new aesthetic potential. It presents new ways to connect with audiences. It provides new opportunities to creatively interpret and reflect reality."

“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.

Getting Ready for a Year of Experimentation (“No Predictions” Edition) | POV Films Blog | PBS | Interactive Documentary (i-Docs) | Scoop.it
New capabilities demand new conventions for communicating with viewers as well as new processes for authors.
i-Docs's insight:

"Nonfiction storytelling has the power to effect radical change, but interactive documentary is an immature medium. Traditional media forms have developed conventions that orient the audience in time and space and help them understand what to expect. Music has time signatures and the pentatonic scale; film has the establishing shot and the “180-degree rule.” As each medium matures over generations, audiences learn to become oriented quickly enough that authors can play with or deviate from those rules to great effect. Interactive storytelling, especially documentary, is a long way from that. The new capabilities demand new conventions for communicating with viewers as well as new processes for authors."
