Interactive Factual - Exploring new ways of documenting reality

Interactive Factual - Exploring new ways of documenting reality | Interactive Factual | Scoop.it
"This is a space for me to concentrate my thoughts on interactive factual narratives: new projects that I have seen, events I have been to, interviews with authors, thoughts on future trends or just ideas and questions. (...) So why going from “interactive documentary” to “interactive FACTUAL”? And what is the difference? Well… the way I see it, there is NO difference… but I have noticed that most people get confused by the word i-doc (interactive documentary). The fact of including the word “documentary” comes with a cultural baggage, and people automatically assume that an i-doc needs to have a strong narrative arch, an authorial point of view and lots of video. Now… this might not be the case at all! Actually, the most interesting i-docs I can think of are participatory, often open to change and sometimes use no video at all. This is why I decided to call this blog “interactive factual”. I hope this terminology is clearer, or simply more inclusive. The definition that I had coined for the word “i-doc” (“any project that starts with an intention to document the ‘real’ and that does so by using digital interactive technology can be considered an i-doc“) is still valid, but now I would say that it is an “interactive factual narrative” (or an IF narrative, which I think is a nice way to get out of the single author paradigm!)."

Rashida Noray's insight:
Very informative, in that it expands toe definition of I-docs
