Satellites Are Now Cleared to Take Photos at Mailbox-Level Detail

Satellites Are Now Cleared to Take Photos at Mailbox-Level Detail | Transmedia and Learning | Scoop.it
The Department of Commerce just lifted a ban on satellite images that showed features smaller than 20 inches. The nation's largest satellite imaging firm, Digital Globe, asked the government to lift the restrictions and can now sell images showing details as small as a foot. A few inches may seem slight, but this is actually a big deal.

The DOC Institute is an initiative of the Documentary Organization of Canada, Toronto Chapter. After several vital Canadian programs for filmmakers closed their doors, we felt something was missing for the community and for our careers. We’ve stepped up to fill the gap by strengthening our hub and expanding and formalizing our professional development offering.

Quote "

I soon realised that greenlight scenarios are better negotiated by media companies who have the relationships with funders in place already. So I took that on board and changed my mode from independent producer, to collaborator and consultant.

Since then, I have greatly improved my greenlight batting score by teaming up with forward thinking ‘traditional’ Film and TV producers. Over the last few years, we have produced together some great projects and we got paid too.

The Transmedia project I was pitching? We did get some seed funding and rolled out a pilot. The pilot gained good audience numbers and reviews but still wasn’t able to get into the 2nd act – both creatively and financially. (Though creatively it’s the best 1st act I’ve ever been involved with!)"

Using Social Media To Support Your Brand’s Storytelling

Using Social Media To Support Your Brand’s Storytelling | Transmedia and Learning | Scoop.it
Earning the respect and attention of your target audience simply is not as easy as it used to be.
Mark White's insight:

"Building a brand’s personality isn’t an easy task, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be simple. In fact, there’s one very basic tactic brands can use that’s been relied upon for years and is relevant to the majority of the world’s population – storytelling. This story can link into anything, from the brand’s values or messaging to the lifestyles of its key demographic… To an extent, it doesn’t matter what it is based on. What matters is that the brand is making an effort to put some meat behind its name; to engage its target audience and produce meaningful, engaging stories."

NASA handed control of the satellite to the USGS earlier this year (May 30, 2013), and calibrated imagery is available through the Earth Explorer. Unfortunately, the Earth Explorer interface is a bit of a pain, so I’ve put together a guide to make it easier.

Gary Hayes's curator insight, September 29, 2013 7:43 PM

Quote "

Meanwhile, because The Times has more potential advertising for videos than it has videos to put it on, production has ramped up. Staff has doubled since last year, new video series have been added and video has been placed outside The Times’s pay wall, so that it’s free to all viewers. Even the popular Modern Love feature now has a video offering, done with animated illustrations. Rebecca Howard, general manager of video production, reports both to the executive editor, Jill Abramson, and to the executive vice president for digital products, Denise Warren. That dual reporting straddles the traditional wall between business and editorial concerns, meant to provide independence.

Ms. Howard thinks it’s necessary, saying, “There’s so much that’s woven together about what we’re doing.” As The Times decides where to put its finite resources, that blending of business and journalistic priorities is something to keep an eye on. Will the most newsworthy projects be the ones to get the green light, or will it be those that will generate the most traffic and thus appeal most to advertisers?"

Exploring Transmedia at the IDFA DocLab | Filmmaker Magazine

Exploring Transmedia at the IDFA DocLab | Filmmaker Magazine | Transmedia and Learning | Scoop.it

It’s been more than a week since IDFA, but I can’t stop thinking about their DocLab program, a competition section showcasing “new and unexpected forms of digital documentary storytelling.” This program presents new non-fiction transmedia projects, each allowing the viewer to interact with the reality the filmmakers have documented and constructed. Most of the projects were presented in screenings or in talks at the excellent DocLab Interactive Documentary Conference. In addition, each was presented on their own computer monitors in the DocLab’s gallery space.
