Usually moviegoers are instructed to turn off their smartphones while watching a film, but with "App," the new Dutch thriller directed by Bobby Boermans, viewers are encouraged to keep their phones on in order to experience the second-screen content.


As the first film made with the intentional inclusion of content on a second, mobile screen, "App" relies on an app, IRIS, which is equipped with sonic technology that triggers additional content during the movie.


Though it's not required for viewing the movie, using the second screen adds layers to the big-screen narrative.


The audience will be advised to leave their devices on their laps while watching the film. When there is additional content available on the second screen, their devices will vibrate.

The Iceberg That Sinks Organizational Change

The Iceberg That Sinks Organizational Change | Media & Imagination | Scoop.it

Some aspects of organizational culture are visible on the surface, like the tip of an iceberg, while others are implicit and submerged within the organization. Because these ingrained assumptions are tacit and below the surface, they are not easy to see or deal with, although they affect everything the organization does.

Virtual Roundtable: The Future of Interactive Documentary

Tom Perlmutter, Former Chairman of the National Film Board of Canada, is widely credited with transforming a somnolent traditional media organization into a global media powerhouse for the digital age. To Perlmutter, despite the disruption and havoc that the digital renaissance has wrought on old world notions of storytelling, the digital landscape is teeming with unimaginable possibilities..

 

This week's hangout will explore the future of interactive documentary, through the eyes of Perlmutter and a cast of fellow revolutionaries who have each had a hand in non-linear story-making. Joined by Sandra Gaudenzi, a leading "i-docs" academic and consultant; interactive practitioner and journalist, Dylan Young; Founder, SALTY Features and independent producer, Yael Melamede; and Soraya Murray of USCS's Film and Digital Media Department, our panel of experts will discuss how the web is changing the form of documentary filmmaking."

Hot Spots: Mapping the World's Most Photographed Locations

Hot Spots: Mapping the World's Most Photographed Locations | Media & Imagination | Scoop.it

Sightsmap forms an aggregation of the most photographed buildings by integrating Google's Panoramio, which allows users to tag a location or attraction within their photo.

 

In a colorful gradient of purples, reds, and yellows, the website reveals the most photographed places around the globe. Broad patches of purple coincide with a lesser amount of photographs, while smaller clusters of yellow reveal the locations where people can't seem to put their cameras down. Unsurprisingly, the densest areas of yellow are the world's most popular tourist spots − including New York City and cities across Europe such as Istanbul.

Sightsmap is more than just a map of tourist destinations however; it also shows the close connection between architecture and what inspires people to take photos. Sightsmap forms an aggregation of the most photographed buildings by integrating Google's Panoramio, which allows users...

Laura Huntimer:  "You may know Ed Rodley from Drinking About Museums, Thinking about Museums or as one of the chairs of the MCN Conference. You also may know about digital paper dolls, Mood-o-meters, and 3-d printed models at the the PEM. How does the Peabody Essex Museum so consistently produce such cool and meaningful interactive tech? I sat down with Ed Rodley and Caroline Herr of the Integrated Media department to figure it out."

Adi Robertson:  "The scene is a snowy apartment building out of the 1950s, rendered in a bright, slightly retro palette. A janitor trudges across the courtyard, then stops, wary. Someone is out there. Someone large, nimble, and wearing a floppy red hat. Then you turn your phone."

Vivalist's curator insight, December 25, 2015 4:53 PM

"Aardman’s animation, though, had to look good from several different possible camera angles. It couldn’t be linear, and it had to progress at the viewer’s pace. In Special Delivery, some vignettes only begin when you look closely at them, and major story events will wait until you’re paying attention. Instead of a screen, the team had to imagine something more like a stage. They even built a circular cardboard "set" as a storyboard, blocking out the movement of their characters in physical space. 

"You’re giving away the camera to the audience, which is a bit nerve-wracking," says director Tim Ruffle. "After a while, you kind of get the idea that you’re trying to create an experience for people, rather than creating a show."

That’s a sentiment that’s heard more and more often, from directors exploring the nascent field of virtual reality video."


The article mentions the VR limitations and its differences with 360° casual immersion. It also meditates on the line being blurred between motion pictures and video game.
