Five Takeaways from “The Future of Documentary Storytelling” | POV Blog | PBS | Interactive Documentary (i-Docs) | Scoop.it
Abi Wright shares her notes from the recent discussion hosted by ONA-NYC and the Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Awards at Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism in May.

 

excerpt:

"The future of documentaries is less about finding new ways to tell the story but using the tools that exist to tell great stories. That’s the conclusion of the Future of Documentary Storytelling panel that was hosted by ONA-NYC and the duPont AwardsMay 30, 2013 (...) They advised storytellers to understand audience engagement, the range of digital technologies that can be adapted to tell non-fiction stories and the importance of a narrative regardless of its platform."

D|N|A - Seven interactive essays on digital nonlinear storytelling

D|N|A - Seven interactive essays on digital nonlinear storytelling | Interactive Documentary (i-Docs) | Scoop.it
Introduction to Database | Narrative | Archive

 

excerpt:

"Database|Narrative|Archive is a collection of seven 'essays' by nine thinkers and makers in the emergent medium of nonlinear digital storytelling.

 

A profusion of recent scholarly writing and cultural commentary addresses the sprawling, emergent realm of interactive narrative, which is itself part of a profound historical development that has been referred to as “the computerization of culture.” Categories such as “electronic literature,” “interactive database narrative," and ‘transmedia’ scholarship are amongst the many neologisms claiming to describe some of the emergent characteristics of interactive narrative."

Si l'ergonomie est convaincante (une décision préside au geste qui enclenche le dispositif), il n'en va pas de même de l'usage qui est primaire : le tactile sert à scanner des blocs textes (et lentement !).... dans un hors-champs. Il faut non pas scanner un bloc mais pouvoir par un détecteur si l'appui vise un mot ou un paragraphe et que la capture se superpose à l'original plus que d'être déportée en dehors du doc de travail...

i-Docs's insight:

This project started in late 2011 when Florian Thalhofer and his later wife Elissavet Aggou traveled trough Greece to chat with people about how they are dealing with the economic situation they are in. While on the road, they wrote a blog about their experiences. The blog is still available in German and Greek.

 

They came back from their trip with lots of material: more than 30 hours of interviews. With the help of the Goethe-Institut Athen all the material was translated and with the help of the greek editor Lefteris Fylaktos the material was pre-edited into 203 clips with a duration of 4 1/2 hours in total. This material was then previewed in public viewings in Berlin and Athens, where the audience became part of the editing process. People were invited to rate and comment the material. Based on these ratings the material was selected, which should be worked on further. The rating also took place on the internet where people could register and rate and comment online. The raw-material is still available and the rating-process is still ongoing. All the data from the ratings was (and still is) collected and determines what makes it into the film.

 

There were three groups that participated in the previewing process: Greeks, Germans and Greeks living abroad. We quickly learned that these groups had very different opinions on some of the clips. These clips were identified to be very controversial.

 

The clips, that made it into the final selection, were not just the ones, that were valued the most, but also the most controversial clips. When you watch GELD.GR it is indicated with a color-bar how much a clip was liked or disliked in a certain group.

 

This film is not a normal film. Normal films are the same every time you look at it. This is a Korsakow-Film, it changes its structure – not by random – there are rules that define which scene links to which scene. You – the viewer – get a selection of clips offered that match the previous clip, and you can choose, which clip will be next. And don’t worry, clips that you have not picked now will be offered again at some point.

There are all these fragments, these impressions of Greece and please notice: This is not a puzzle to solve, there is no right order. There are just different ways to look at things.

At the NFB  the boundary between interactive documentary, readings, new formats etc. is increasingly blurring.

 

The fundamental role of the platform in the projects development strategy is currently the mobile and tablet. We look forward to seeing the interesting projects announced.

Video Interview | William Uricchio defines Interactive Documentary | Open Documentary Lab at MIT | Interactive Documentary (i-Docs) | Scoop.it

"Arnau is in the process of interviewing a number of practitioners, scholars, and students of interactive documentary about the state of the field. He will be posting select clips on the OpenDocLab website. First up is Part 1 of an interview with OpenDocLab Principal Investigator William Uricchio.!

 

 

"In this series we focus on the theoretical part of the study of interactive documentary. We will conduct video interviews with the main experts in the field based on six key questions:

(1) the definition, how would they define the interactive documentary;

(2) the evolution of the form, whether they believe that the interactive documentary is a natural evolution of the linear documentary;

(3) the change in the logics and dynamics, if they believe there is a change in the logics of production, distribution and exhibition;

(4) the role of the author, if they believe that the role of the author is threatened;

(5) the business model; and (6) their views on the production, research and events organized by countries that are active in this field, placing special emphasis on Canada and France."

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.

Gary Hayes's curator insight, May 3, 2013 3:27 AM

Quote "To that end, the team developed an iPad app that uses motion tracking technology to "map" a user interface onto different parts of an object. The example we saw was a simple radio with a a pair of dials and a speaker, and when the iPad's camera was pointed at it, a circular interface along with a menu system popped up that cannily tracked the radio. From there, Huen mapped various songs onto different positions of the knob, allowing him to control his playlist by moving it -- a simple, manual interface for selecting music. He was even able to activate a second speaker by drawing a line to it, then "cutting" the line to shut it off. We're not sure when, or if, this kind of tech will ever make it into your house, but the demo we saw (see the pair of videos after the break) seemed impressively ready to go.

i-docs and the art of intimacy - i-Docs | Interactive Documentary (i-Docs) | Scoop.it
i-Docs's insight:

Jonathan Harris (We Feel Fine, The Whale Hunt, Cowbird, I Love your Work) will be giving a keynote at WebDox on Monday the 6th of May, in Leuven, Belgium. This is a real treat for us, i-docs lovers, as Jonathan is one of the very few people that have managed to transform “data” into a meaningful universe that feels safe, playful and easy to navigate for the user. His latest project, I Love your Work, was just released last week (go and see it!): it is an amazing portrait of nine women who do lesbian porn. The subject is catchy, and could appear voyeuristic, but the way it is done is subtle and nonjudgmental – to the point that it relies on the serendipity of 10 seconds of video shot every five minutes (during ten days). No authorial choice of crunchy moments. You end up browsing through 2,202 video clips that have all the same relevance, whether they catch a female breast, a private confession or someone making coffee in the morning. Yes there is something about intimacy in I Love your Work, but it has more to do with how you browse the content, and what you choose to see, rather than about Jonathan’s editorial choice.
