Chris Milk: the digital artist making music videos fly into the future

Chris Milk: the digital artist making music videos fly into the future | relevant entertainment | Scoop.it

From Kanye West and the Johnny Cash Project to Beck and virtual reality, the video director and tech pinup – whose mother taught him to code as a child – has become a hero of the post-MTV age


Via The Digital Rocking Chair
Vivalist's insight:

Chris Milk is a true 21st century artist. The fact that he learned to code at an early age is very relevant. His collaboration is Aaron Koblin are mind blowing and he can also truly shine on his own - as the Lincoln Hello Again project shows it

Simon Parkin:  'Milk wants to create art that can impact millions simultaneously, so he’s turned to virtual reality, which is set to make a triumphant return in the form of the Oculus Rift, VR goggles built from smart-phone technology. He is unequivocal about it: VR is what will succeed film as the “future of storytelling” and the “next great canvas for human expression”.'

'Hollow' creators offer tips for making interactive documentaries

'Hollow' creators offer tips for making interactive documentaries | relevant entertainment | Scoop.it

 

Web-based video projects are blowing the lid off the traditional, linear form of storytelling. Interactive documentaries such as Pine Point and 17,000 Islands make a tangible connection between the content and the audience, turning viewers into participants.

"Hollow", an interactive web-based documentary that examines rural life in America through the keyhole of impoverished McDowell County, West Virginia, is a poster child for this story form because of the risks it took with technology and narrative.


Via The Digital Rocking Chair
Vivalist's insight:

Hollow is a digital documentary that lives through its protagonists and it is full of good ideas - even though the design and UX are not as tight as, let's say Pinepoint.

 

It includes some nice features and in this article, the creators come back on the production production, both from a writing and designing standpoints. Good read

Margaret Looney:  "The first thing most of us learn about storytelling is that a narrative should have a beginning, a middle and an end, but a new breed of documentary is turning this tried-and-true approach on its head" ...

TNT is Tweeting the Script for the First Episode of 'Mob City' Ahead of Its Premiere | relevant entertainment | Scoop.it

"Mob City," TNT's miniseries from writer-director-executive producer Frank Darabont set in 1940s Los Angeles, premieres this Wednesday, and the network's trying out an unusual experiment to promote the three-week series -- an "adaptweetion" (their word!) in which the script for the first episode will be adapted for and published through Twitter.

an "adaptweetion"... ah ah ah. I have no idea what good it can do and see that mostly as a PR stunt so guys like me reshare it ;)

Comic Book Think Tank: The Future of Digital Comics?

Comic Book Think Tank: The Future of Digital Comics? | relevant entertainment | Scoop.it
A new platform for digital comics is exploring the world of Tolkien while expanding the very idea of what a comic book can be.

Via The Digital Rocking Chair
Vivalist's insight:

After the failed first attempts at "motion comics" coming from Marvel [http://marvel.com/motion_comics], the genre is truly taking shapes with the ever growing adoption of tablets, allowing more interaction on a format that remind the comic book page format.

 

And visually, it also gets better as new materials are produced, not just animation of old stuff with bad lips sync and awkward visual effect.

For example, Tales from Dunwall (Dishonored) was a great production this year.

Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's curator insight, December 13, 2012 4:30 AM

Digital comics is a medium that is still finding its footing. 2012 was a banner year, and saw the launch of new and progressive approaches to exploring the seemingly infinite possibilities of the digital canvas. One such launch was Comic Book Think Tank, spearheaded by Ron Perazza and Daniel Govar.
