"Fort McMoney is a documentary game. As a player your role is to explore the oil town of Fort McMurray, Canada, in the heart of the Athabasca oil sands development. You ‘meet’ characters and ‘vote’ on issues; scouring the interface for clues you aim to sway others through your posts. While Fort McMoney is playful it clearly shares documentary’s serious intent: in Fort McMoney ‘everything is real: the places, events, the characters.’ To play is to engage with the political, social and ecological issues of oil production.

 

Fort McMoney is part of a growing collection of works that marry the social, political and aesthetic ambitions of documentary with the forms and representational possibilities of digital media. Documentary makers are actively exploring new ways of telling stories and engaging audiences and they are doing so with reference both to new technologies and the idea of documentary – it’s techniques, aesthetics and critically, its social functions."


Read the full article to find out more about the changing world of documentary.  Be sure to check out the Fort McMoney trailer or play the documentary game.

Very interesting article. Would have liked to read more.

Kim Zinke (aka Gimli Goose)'s curator insight, April 27, 2014 12:41 AM

I'm a little partial to this documentary game as it's produced by Canada's National Film Board (NFB).  The NFB has been recognized as a world leader in transmedia and interactive media.  I grew up watching their films, and love to see themselves reinventing themselves to stay in the game.


I'm looking forward to digging deeper into Fort McMoney.  The format has been described as - where film marries video game.  I'm curious to see if it will impact my feelings about the place.

Digital interaction? Make sure it’s a two-way street

Digital interaction? Make sure it’s a two-way street | Stories - an experience for your audience - | Scoop.it
What we really mean by digital interaction is the act of getting the viewer, reader or listener to give something back as they consume our media. The play for eyeballs, clicks and time has become a complex sport.

 

"nteractive is a stupidly vague term. But many of us (including me) are guilty of overusing it, often in place of more functional words like ‘clickable’. Apply it to the physical world instead of the internet and it becomes laughable."

How many times have we found the so-called interactive documentaries "asking for a passive type of interaction with pre-written multiple choice"?
