i-Docs's insight:


'the build film' interactive documentary by instrument agency

 

instrument, an independent digital creative agency based in portland, oregon has launched an interactive documentary titled 'the build.'
the film portrays the values and culture of the local motorcycle builder community in portland, told through the personal stories of three
bike builders. shot during the fall and winter of 2012, the movie captures the cyclist enthusiasts in iconic oregon locations including the 
gorge, mt. hood and downtown portland, as well as their own workshops. blending design and technology in groundbreaking ways, 
the project pairs traditional filmmaking with new school interactive experiences that push the envelope of current browser technologies

Submarine

Submarine is an Amsterdam based production company. We specialize in feature films, documentaries, games and animation.
i-Docs's insight:
Unspeak Based on British journalist Steven Poole’s intriguing book of the same name, Unspeak is an interactive web documentary that reveals the unspoken messages and obscured meanings behind familiar media terms. War on terror; weapons of mass destruction; climate change; asylum-seekers; file-sharing; erectile dysfunction once we tune in to Unspeak, we start seeing and hearing it everywhere. Through a radical collage of archive footage, quotes from politicians and media figures, compelling typographic animations, and Steven Poole’s own enlightening analyses, Unspeak visualizes how language is manipulated to suit political agendas, smuggling persuasion into description.

Loved Searching For Sugar Man, such an inspirational film and great story. The Invisible War was likewise a compelling story on the current crises within the US military, however, I saw neither in theatres. In fact, the only documentary I was able to see outside of film festivals in theatres this year was Sarah Polley's Stories We Tell.

Deserving attention: what story have you really listened to lately?

Deserving attention: what story have you really listened to lately? | Interactive Documentary (i-Docs) | Scoop.it

Attention is scarce. We all have oh so much to do. And for many of us it’s so hard to manage our time and stay focused with an increasing number of channels and messages. It’s not about getting attention anymore, it’s about deserving attention. For brands it’s harder to get through and ‘gain attention’. Why is that?

 

Carl Gustav Jung once said the reason for evil in the world is that people are not able to tell their stories. We don’t always understand the stories we are ourselves. And people’s stories are often not heard. To deserve attention we must pay attention. To get our stories and content shared and acted upon, we must understand the stories of the people forming the communities we want to live and thrive in first.

i-Docs's insight:

Everything will be online.” Create interactive and engaging webdocumentaries at Webdox 2013: iDROPS Doc Jam, Dox & Tech LAB and Doc Hothouse.


How does user behaviour change once tablets are involved? How can data be collected and retrieved in a creative way? Which software do you use to make an interactive webdocumentary? What are good open source platforms?


Documentaries and digital technologies have never been closer to each other than today. Online tools can offer creative ways to tell your story and interact with your audience, collect and unlock data.

 

WebDox 2013 focuses on the state of the art of the interactive webdocumentaries and on its technical aspects. WebDox brings the world of documentaries closer to the digital world, creates a notion about how to sharpen a story, reach a public and engage it. Webdox kicks off with an interesting conference on May 6th in Leuven (more informationWebDox2013.wordpress.com).

Hyperlocal: Integrating Past and Present in Interactive Design

Hyperlocal: Integrating Past and Present in Interactive Design | Interactive Documentary (i-Docs) | Scoop.it

"Paul Shoebridge and Michael Simons are the dynamic creative duo known in the back alleys and coffee shops of Vancouver as “The Goggles.” They are the creators behind the NFBs wonderful interactive documentary about a vanished Canadian town, Welcome to Pine Point, and were brought in by the NFB and Hyperlocal co-creator Sean Embury to lend their design expertise to two of the project’s interactive pieces."

 

"Interactive design borrows a little bit from all kinds of other disciplines: designers integrate music, visuals, text and narration, and create various ways in which users can explore or interact with the work. A project’s interactive elements often underscore or mirror its themes. The adaptation of Will Ferguson’s piece is a perfect example of this."
