Great Post from i-Docs on the Interactive Documentary Conference – Amsterdam – Nov 2012

Great Post from i-Docs on the Interactive Documentary Conference – Amsterdam – Nov 2012 | Movie Making: Art & Craft | Scoop.it

There was an upbeat mood at last Sunday’s Interactive Documentary Conference, organised by Casper Sonnen for the fifth anniversary of the IDFA new media programme Doclab. The one-day event was one element in the Expanding Documentary programme which also included a number of exhibitions and live cinema events. “How does the documentary genre connect to visual art, music or the digital revolution? To robots, poetry and interactive installations?” What’s “…the link between documentary and innovation, experiment and adventure.” This was the territory of Expanding Documentary....

 

...Welcome to the Age of the Interface

 

The Interface was a major theme of the day, with presenters considering the relationship between technology, affordance and story. Daniel Burwen started the discussion with his presentation – “Welcome to the age of the interface”. Burwen suggested that interactive documentary could learn much from game designers who know how to tell a compelling story through a dialogue. Joel Ronez, Arte commissioner, amused and provoked by talking about his own cross-platform failures, which had usually involved mistaking affordance for content. His injunctions: No to interactive maps, meaningless UGC. Characters belong to the story, they are not the story. No to purposeless interactivity. All this revolved around his keypoint – “Interface is not the story”.

 

This theme echoed through the keynote by Upian’s CEO, Alexandre Brachet. When he first came to IDFA Brachet told us, he’d felt out of place. Now, he feels he’s coming home – vindicated in his long-term belief in “the internet and documentary – a great couple”. Walking us through Thanatorama.com, one of his first ventures into the territory – which invites the user to discover what happens to a body after death – he showed how fluent Upian already were in interactive non-fiction back in 2007....

Documentary Object-ivity? | Open Documentary Lab at MIT

Documentary Object-ivity? | Open Documentary Lab at MIT | Movie Making: Art & Craft | Scoop.it

All documentary filmmakers are familiar with the debate over the meaning of objectivity in documentary. What about just the meaning of objects?

 

One of the big themes at the Mozilla Festival 2012 was physical computing, turning the objects around us into digitally integrated machines, or pulling the world of the web into the physical world.

 

Another was the move to web-native media-rich storytelling, with tools to push video into the mashable, layered, feature-heavy realm of the internet.

 

Zooming in and out of sessions, demos, and hack-spaces at MozFest, I wondered: why are we doc makers hurrying to migrate our art form onto the web, when technologists are clamoring to move their art off of it and back into the physical world?

 

What can documentary learn from physical computing?

The sheer creativity surrounding these projects is stunning. Here are just a few of the object-driven tools and projects I encountered at the festival:

 

The Mozilla team’s own web browsing cocktail maker. This home-bar-gone-kinetic-sculpture let people “taste the web.” As users browse the web on the connected laptop, the database structures, feeds and other features of the website activate particular bottles. This sets off a slow drip of the user’s unique browsing experiences, translating their time online into a personal browsed beverage....
