i-docs: "During the summer Ingrid Kopp, Director of Digital Initiatives at the Tribeca Film Institute, came to the Watershed, Bristol to give a talk on interactive storytelling. For members of the i-Docs community who weren’t able to attend, we’re pleased to be able to offer the full transcript, full of brilliant examples and analysis of these new forms of storytelling. Enjoy."
Paula Bernstein: "In March 2011 Jake Price, a freelance producer for the BBC, journeyed to Tohoku, Japan to document the devastation left in the wake of the Pacific tsunami. The result of his trip is evident in his powerful and beautiful immersive web documentary, "Unknown Spring," which was awarded the World Press Photo Multimedia Awards."
Anna Jackson on Loading Docs: "[...] a platform for New Zealand documentaries that would give film-makers an opportunity to take creative risks, to push beyond the boundaries of TV formats and to explore the possibilities of online distribution."
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" ...
Yasmin Morgan-Griffiths: "In an age which is increasingly defined by audience interactivity, many shows are aiming to give their audience more choice over what they are viewing. And you’d be hard pressed to find more choices in one show than in Choose Your Own Documentary."
Amanda Lin Costa: "Unlike a traditional documentary where viewers turn the lights down, sit back and have a story unfold in front of their eyes, participants “watching” “Hollow” must scroll and click through a detailed multi-storyline experience" ...
Abigail Maravalli: "Whether webisodes are released before a film, as follow-up to a finished film, or as a standalone project, they are becoming a viable way of starting and continuing public discourse. Here are three ways filmmakers are utilizing webisodes."
Elisabeth Greenbaum Kasson: "While Baby Boomers and older Gen Xers may feel everything from dismissive to perplexed or even paralyzed by the shift to digital storytelling, the upcoming generations fear none of that. To get information delivered via virtual reality, gaming or interactive, as well as film, television, video, radio and photography—or any combination thereof—makes complete sense to them, and it's indicative of how documentary content will be delivered in the near future."
Randy Astle: "Access is always an issue with documentary, creating unique challenges in war zones or similar areas where filmmakers would be in physical danger or simply cannot go. The documentary Last Hijack, produced by Submarine Channel and directed by Femke Wolting and Tommy Pallotta, doesn’t just deal with these issues but makes them one of the film’s greatest strengths."
Manori Ravindran: "Increasingly, media producers are transforming the documentary experience through interactive docs and buzzy transmedia elements. But how can integrating transmedia reinforce a project, and what audiences can it reach?"
Krishna Stott: "Choose Your Own Documentary is a live performance of a documentary where the audience choose which way to take the story at numerous decision points – there are 1500 different outcomes…"
Bryce J. Renninger: "As transmedia has come and gone as a buzz word and various other words have come to take its place (will we agree on "Interactive storytelling"?), two things remain certain: The National Film Board of Canada has devoted the most resources, time, and energy to ensuring this mode of storytelling evolves and excites, and the work of Katerina Cizek is absolutely unmissable."
Bryce J. Renninger: "Can crowdsourcing become a viable means for producing quality documentary films? Crowdsourcing site Tongal, which usually works for brands but is now working for Oscar-winning production company Spitfire Pictures, is giving it a go."
