Between the Lines: Storytelling in the New Landscape - i-Docs

Between the Lines: Storytelling in the New Landscape - i-Docs | immersive media |

"This session (...) looked at the relationship between technology and storytelling, it’s function within the creation of non-linear narratives and the continued role of “old” storytelling telling methods." I-Docs


"Each technological change in filmmaking has influenced the way stories are crafted. Adapting to these new technologies has repeatedly been presented as a revolutionary new way of storytelling. The first films shot with handheld cameras allowed unprecedented access to events, and later, digital cameras made it cheaper to produce films. Now, with opportunities offered by new media, stories can be told in a non-linear fashion through different platforms, or made interactive. Do these new technologies truly revolutionize the way we document the world, or do they merely change the relationship between the maker and the viewer? Do the old methods of storytelling still apply to interactive or non-linear documentaries?

Excellent conversation focused on issues arising from the emerging interactive forms.

Also excellent the choice of involving experience from different sectors but now piped into a single ecosystem.
