Admittedly, I'm new to ScoopIt.  Hoping it isn't bad manners to Scoop your own blog entry.

Documentary Collaboration in the 21st Century.

 

Talk, MIT Oct 24, 2012

 

"In this talk, Director, Katerina Cizek and Senior Producer, Gerry Flahive, compared two distinct projects within their HIGHRISE story universe (Out My Window and One Millionth Tower) in order to explore the multitude of co-creative possibilities in a new kind of documentary practice.  The National Film Board of Canada’s HIGHRISE project is a multi-year digital documentary experiment exploring the human condition of vertical living around the globe. This Emmy-award winning project innovates with new approaches to both documentary form and content."

A great analysis of the issues related to new approaches to both the form and the content of the documentary

 

A milestone.

Lesson for students - if you have a great story to tell, don't let a lack of money or gear get in your way!

Love this story of a DIY approach to storytelling. And lo and behold it was heard and received by the Academy! Go indie media go!

Zan Chandler's curator insight, February 25, 2013 10:05 PM

And it actually won the Oscar!

 

While the amount of footage the filmmaker needed to make with his iPhone was small in terms of the overall, I think this sends a number of signals. 1 -  consumer tech is getting closer and closer to industry standards and used in the right way can be effective; and 2 - this is another example of compelling content created with a DIY ethic.

 

I look forward to seeing more examples of where filmmaking can evolve.
