Gary Hayes's curator insight, March 6, 2013 3:45 PM

How do you tell the story of a PLACE? New technologies like geo-tagging, location-aware devices, interactive video and augmented reality are being combined with traditional storytelling methods like documentary film and oral history to explore the world in richer, more in-depth ways than ever before. Using these tools and techniques, creators can now fully consider a location itself as one of the “main characters” in their narratives. Panelists include storytellers, practitioners and technologists who are creating the next generation of place-based storytelling.

See What It’s Like To Escape From North Korea With Interactive Experience “The Defector”

See What It’s Like To Escape From North Korea With Interactive Experience “The Defector” | Interactive Documentary (i-Docs) | Scoop.it
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.
i-Docs's insight:

“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."

More Than Just Money - The Unexpected Benefits of Crowdfunding | Sheffield Doc/Fest 2012

"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."

The transformations of funding production models besides changing the relationship with the audiences, it also affect the process of representing reality. Of great inspiration.

In our previous posts of this series (Part I – Part II) we tried to argue that although it is clear that the main scope of interactive documentary focuses on the field of audiovisual and cultural dissemination, we believe that there is another closely related field which soon will begin to emerge and explode giving us all their latent potential: the interactive nonfiction genres related to education, teaching and training. That’s why we started to produce projects in the Interactive Communication Studies at the University of Vic in that direction...

i-Docs's insight:

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.
