Interactive Filmmaking Round Up Report

Interactive Filmmaking Round Up Report | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it

"Over the course of a year, Sheffield Doc/Fest collaborated with Crossover Labs and film festivals around the country to run a series of workshops on interactivity and filmmaking. All six interactive platforms: Klynt, Racontr, Korsakow, Popcorn Maker, Treehouse and Storygami, give filmmakers the ability to create interactive elements for their films, without the need for a programmer to build them. 

(...) My role was to attend every workshop, try out the platforms, and write a report that would explain what each of them offers to filmmakers who wish to add interactivity to their films."

The 'linear turn' in i-docs - a provocation

The 'linear turn' in i-docs - a provocation | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it

"I have just returned from delivering a workshop on i-docs at the Freiburger Film Forum, alongside Florian Thalhofer, inventor of the Korsakow system.

 

It was great to see Florian again and our respective talks sparked a lively discussion between us on the evolution of interactive documentaries. As two of the pioneers in the field – Florian having invented Korsakow over fifteen years ago and me having completed my PhD thesis on interactive multimedia in 2003 – we both had a lot to say on the current state of play with i-docs and on the possibility of  a ‘linear turn’.

 

I provide here the key points that we discussed, as a provocation for further discussion and debate."

 

by Judith Aston for i-Docs

mirmilla's insight:

The linear storytelling has once again become a dominant model at the expense of alternative and experimental forms? 

The recent works as Alma or Operation Ajax betray in some ways the innovations introduced by experimentation or act for one of many possible ways?

A reflection that I believe will find answers just in the march of time...

I believe we cannot betray story either! I answered back with a questione someone once made: is non-linearity killing story?
mirmilla's comment, May 21, 2013 1:53 AM
A good question! I think no, non-linearity allows the story to be' perceived in different way, but the magic still remains.

"Sixteen questions about digital nonlinear storytelling"

 

The DNA symposium bought together documentary makers, academics, nonlinear type people and interested parties for a very productive few days.

<Evergreen Series>

A very very interesting Korsakow film with all lightning talks.

A champion of nonlinear narratives: An interview with documentary filmmaker Florian Thalhofer

A champion of nonlinear narratives: An interview with documentary filmmaker Florian Thalhofer | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it

When Florian Thalhofer shows one of his interactive documentaries in theaters, he arms the audience with laser pointers. Whenever there is a choice of which clip to watch next, the crowd votes by aiming a glowing red dot, and the choice with the most dots wins.

Thalhofer, a documentary filmmaker based in Berlin, had to build his own software in order to deliver the kind of stories he wanted to tell. Now he offers that software for free online for small projects (larger projects require licensing), and he travels the world giving workshops on how to use it. Those workshops are less about the software, though, and more about his philosophy of storytelling, one that is decidedly nonlinear."

 

"A life in itself is so beautiful, and things go in one direction and then another direction. We are socialized in a very, very linear format with film. I think it’s the dominant structure that we have to deal with. So people at the moment enjoy very linear things. And this might change over time. I think it is a very slow process for people to get their head around. I think it takes at least a generation. We need to rewire the brain."
