This channel I started more than 6 years ago as part of my passioned research across documentary field is shutting down. I will not be updating it anymore due to the changed conditions dictated by that allow only 50 links for every free topic. Running this page has always been incredibly rewarding but also very time-consuming. I want to thank all the amazing people who have collaborated with me over the years.

Interviews Preview: interactivity as a “story disruptor”

Interviews Preview: interactivity as a “story disruptor” | Documentary Evolution |

"Video platforms are emerging that now make it possible to add layers of remixable context to finished videos, effectively extending post-production indefinitely.

How does this effect ways we edit and tell stories?

In this interactive Vine Vid, editor Joe Botana and I have a pre-game talk about this month’s guests and their game-changing content platforms."


Preview of a series of interviews focused on the game-changing content platforms.

mirmilla's insight:

Very interesting the editor's point of view about this topic.
Finally also the editors get out of the closet to reveal (we hope) how much kinship there is between the editing process and the new forms of storytelling.

To understand what will be discussed the next time, just go to 4 '35 ".

Mozilla Reinvents Web Video With Popcorn 1.0

Mozilla Reinvents Web Video With Popcorn 1.0 | Documentary Evolution |

While the lucky ones are at MozFest, we take comfort with the most recent articles related to Popcorn [mirmilla]




Video on the web has always been a bit disappointing. After all, it’s pretty much just like television, only smaller. Unlike the rest of the web, video is just as much a passive experience in your browser as it is anywhere else.


Mozilla would like to change that. The company’s effort to bring a more interactive video experience to the web is known as Popcorn.js and it recently reached 1.0 status. If you’d like to play around with Popcorn, head on over to the Mozilla site and download a copy. Popcorn uses HTML5 video features and at the moment works best in Firefox and Chrome.


At its core, Popcorn is about making HTML5 web video into something more than just another television.

Remixing Remix: Mozilla Festival 2012

Remixing Remix: Mozilla Festival 2012 | Documentary Evolution |
The Center for Social Media showcases and analyzes media for public knowledge and action—media made by, for, and with publics to address the problems that they share.



Documentary filmmakers have increasing access to new tools for remixing and web documentary thanks to open source webmakers. At the 2012 Mozilla Festival, Brett Gaylor, director of the 2008 documentary "RiP: A Remix Manifesto," took center stage to announce the official launch of Popcorn Maker 1.0.


Web-native documentary (...) what does this have to do with my filmmaking? This isn't the first time we've thrown around "web-native documentary" and "Popcorn" here at the Center, but the good news is now you get to tinker with it firsthand.
