About the Storytelling Project

About the Storytelling Project | Interactive Documentary (i-Docs) | Scoop.it

The Waiting Room Storytelling Project is a location-based social media and community engagement initiative that aims to improve the patient experience through the collection and sharing of digital content. This cultural data – video, data visualizations, photographs and text – is collected in the waiting room by creating frameworks for sharing that range from anonymous expressions of feeling to deeper storytelling.

Screen Australia announces support for 14 interactive projects

Screen Australia announces support for 14 interactive projects | Interactive Documentary (i-Docs) | Scoop.it

At the Sydney Film Festival tonight, Screen Australia’s Chief Executive Ruth Harley announced support for 14 new multi-platform projects that push the envelope of creative storytelling.


“We’re thrilled with the volume and quality of applications we received as awareness grows of our support for content creators to capitalise on the fast-moving digital landscape,” said Dr Harley. “We have both new talent and established players collaborating and telling stories through interactive documentary, games, web series, apps and multi-platform television.”

 

The projects will be supported through the second funding round of Screen Australia’s All Media Production and Digital Ignition programs. The production fund, which will now operate under the new name Multi-platform Production, supports narrative content in both linear and non-linear forms. Practitioners are provided with opportunities to take risks, extend their skills and explore new storytelling tools and platforms.

Shared Knowledges: The first web documentary to promote access to essential services

Shared Knowledges: The first web documentary to promote access to essential services | Interactive Documentary (i-Docs) | Scoop.it

Some 783 million people today still have no access to drinking water and more than 2 billion people don’t have basic sanitation. Access to waste treatment is also a major concern for developing countries. In every corner of the globe, the FONDS SUEZ ENVIRONNEMENT INITIATIVES supports NGOs and specialized institutions to:

• provide access to water and sanitation;
• improve access to waste treatment;
• develop and boost the skills of managers in urban water and sanitation services in developing countries.

 

Three years of support for NGOs and specialized institutions

Founded in 2008, the SUEZ ENVIRONNEMENT Water For All Fund was set up to support access-to-essential-services initiatives for a period of three years. In 2011, the FONDS SUEZ ENVIRONNEMENT INITIATIVES took over the commitments of the SUEZ ENVIRONNEMENT Water For All Foundation. Launching the Shared Knowledges website was an innovating and interactive way to report on three years’ worth of projects. The Shared Knowledges website was designed by the Doing Good Doing company and produced by What’s Up Films. It blends images by the director Alexandre Dereims and a website designed by Cellules Studio.

Madefire Is the Future of Storytelling

Madefire Is the Future of Storytelling | Interactive Documentary (i-Docs) | Scoop.it
“It’s about creating a new grammar. Not just for comics, though that’s where we’re starting, but eventually for all types of stories. A new era for storytelling.” This is the bold claim that Madefire founder Ben Wolstenholme told me last week, while showing me Madefire’s plans for the future. Those plans include changing the way we think about storytelling, disrupting comic books, and harnessing the power of the iPad in new and creative ways.

 

No biggie.

 

The “new grammar” is key to understanding what Madefire is trying to do. Not grammar in the sense of punctuation and spelling, but a new language, or a new medium. A new way of expression.

James Iliff: "While on the second night of the incredible 5D Flux Conference on transmedia at USC two weeks ago, Henry Jenkins moderated a discussion with a number of luminaries from the previsualization and motion capture industries [...] The topic was on digital design and world building in the narrative media landscape – a topic that is vitally relevant to virtual reality, and couldn’t have been more timely."

There are many ways to define the interactive documentary genre. Some may describe it as deconstructed storytelling. Others, non-linear narratives. Or maybe London College of Media lecturer Sandra Gaudenzi is onto something with this all-encompassing explanation: “I would consider an interactive documentary is not linked by the industry with the ‘documentary family’ and is called an online forum, a digital art piece, a locative game, an educational product, a 3D world, an emotional map.”
