"The Future of Storytelling (FoST), is a one - day, invitation - only event that aims to further our understanding of the art and science of communication in the 21st century and beyond. Top thinkers and practitioners from diverse fields will gather to explore current evolutions and revolutions in the creation, marketing, and consumption of information. We want to cultivate higher levels of engagement in an interactive and dynamic atmosphere, while affording guests a better opportunity to get to know one another and the speakers."
From the threats of nuclear weapons to larger-than-life dictatorial leaders, North Korea is without a doubt one of the least understood, most notorious countries in the world.
“You can only do so much in film, but in an interactive web doc, you place the user in the point of view of a defector--they see, hear, and experience what a defector goes through,” says Shin, who’s also executive producer at Fathom. “It’s an incredibly powerful way of letting people understand experiences that are completely out of their realm."
David Cornish: Our hero, Publishing, tumbles forth from the Pit of Paper Projects in a flurry of dust and curses. His tunic is torn, his shield lost, and his future far from certain. Regaining his breath, he rises to his knees and looks about him [...]

Mike Jones: "In any discussion and professional practice of ‘new media’ there is a swag of terminology that gets kicked around; cross-media, multi-platform & transmedia, interactive and pervasive media, emergent, non-linear and participatory storytelling, etc etc…"
"In these financially precarious times there is endless rhetoric about crowdfunding being the knight on a white charger come to the save the creative industries. But is that realistic? For those that do, is the benefit more than just the money raised? Is it worth crowdfunding a portion of your traditionally financed project purely for the audience interaction? WARNING! This is not a "HOW TO CROWDFUND" seminar. You may not get richer. An eclectic panel will discuss the highs and the lows of their own successful projects and the benefits of crowdfunding for reasons other than money. Remember: An audience is for life not just Kickstarter."
Springboard Internet of Things (“IoT”), the London and Cambridge-based accelerator programme, has announced it is adding Kickstarter as an additional funding option alongside the traditional Investor Day to become the world’s first accelerator...
D-Day to Victory Interactive is an online documentary experience recreating the WWII final assault on Nazi-occupied Europe. A transmedia extension to the History Television and Channel4 documentary series, the site features many additional and poignant veteran interviews, and traces the Allied journey from the D-Day invasion of Normandy to the siege of Berlin. The site also allows users to engage in virtual commemoration and online sharing of several veterans’ stories who may be telling them for the last time.

That’s why we started to produce projects in the Interactive Communication Studies at the University of Vic in that direction...
The third REACT Sandbox will be Future Documentary.
The overlap between broadcast and the internet is disrupting traditional documentary media. Factual producers are looking for new ways to engage audiences and the TV screen, once the centre of home entertainment, is being displaced by computers, phones and tablets. There are new kinds of audiences forming: in May 2012, Channel Four’s Foxes Live tracked nine foxes through the streets of Manchester, recording their direction, speed, body temperature and activity levels. The interactive map gained more web viewers than a Big Brother eviction.
