  • Title: About- i-Docs: a site dedicated to interactive documentary
    Descriptive info: This site is for people involved with or interested in interactive documentary.. We call this work “i-docs” – a term coined by Sandra Gaudenzi who was one of the co-founders of the i-Docs project.. The website is a space for news, analysis and dialogue between practitioners, researchers, students and enthusiasts – a place where we hope you can learn, reflect and expand your understanding of the field.. The website is run on a community model.. If you would like to contribute a post on the aesthetic, ethical, political or business aspects of i-docs then we would like to hear from you..

Two further i-Docs Symposia have since  ...   interactive documentary.. At this point in the development of this fast-moving field we feel that it is important to have an expansive definition that can embrace the many different kinds of work that are emerging.. The i-Docs site includes coverage of projects that you may find elsewhere described as web-docs, transmedia documentaries, serious games, cross-platform docs, locative docs, docu-games, pervasive media.. For us any project that starts with an intention to document the ‘real’ and that does so by using digital interactive technology can be considered an i-doc.. What unites all these projects is this intersection between digital interactive technology and documentary practice.. Where these two things come together, the audience become active agents within documentary – making the work unfold through their interaction and often contributing content.. If documentary is about telling stories about our shared world; we are interested in what happens as the audience get more closely involved in this way.. At the heart of i-Docs is the question; what opportunities emerge as documentary becomes something that is co-created?.. Share this:.. Share.. Facebook.. Twitter.. nickt.. 2010.. 1..

Playable City is a people-centred counterpoint to the notion of the Smart City, challenging public narratives around technology-driven cities which often feature a fear of isolation, or the extinction of community and conversation.. At Watershed Bristol on 10 and 11 September, we will be bringing together a brilliant group of thinkers, makers, planners and civil disobedients to look at cities as playable places and ask the question: how do we make and unmake our future cities?.. Spaces are limited and tickets are moving fast.. Book your spot here.. !.. The conference will feature playful interventions, networking, debate and discussion, artist commissions and an academic strand with two contrasting panels:.. Forms of Engagement.. There’s no point  ...   city and its citizens – in which people of all ages have their needs for a playable environment met.. Cities of the future with the children of the present: from neighborhood to childhood – Hugo Monteiro Maria José Araújo (Polytechnic Institute of Porto) Portugal.. The already-playable city: children’s outdoor play in the age of virtual media – Seth Giddings (UWE Bristol) UK.. Drøme methodology: Serious Urban Games – Lieve Achten ([ew32] KHLim – PXL) Annelies Marechal ([ew32]) Netherlands.. Playable public places for later life – Ben Spencer (Oxford Brookes University) UK.. The academic strand is convened by.. Dr Michael Buser.. (Planning Architecture, UWE Bristol),.. Dr Kirsten Cater.. (Computer Science, University of Bristol),.. Professor Jon Dovey.. (Screen Media, UWE Bristol),.. Associate Professor Mandy Rose.. (Digital Cultures, UWE Bristol) and.. Dr Angie Page.. (Policy Studies, University of Bristol).. As part of the conference we will unveil.. Shadowing.. by Jonathan Chomko and Matthew Rosier, the winning project of the 2014 Playable City Award.. This brand-new artwork will give memory to Bristol’s city street lights, enabling them to record and play back the shadows of those who pass underneath, inviting interaction between those who share a space..

  • Title: From iPad to installation: interactive documentary on multiple platforms - i-Docs
    Descriptive info: Avatar Secrets.. , the interactive documentary for the iPad has scaled up its ambitions, installing a large scale interactive installation at.. Hot Docs.. for the duration of the festival.. Audiences are invited to visit, stay, and interact with the dynamic screens, which are running a special 20 minute preview version of Avatar Secrets, complete with layers of additional content that can be accessed through “hot spots” on screen.. I caught up with Ramona to find out how Avatar Secrets has moved across iPad to installation:.. What were the challenges of reproducing your work for an installation?.. One of the biggest challenges was right at the beginning, figuring out what our approach to versioning it would be whether we wanted to use projections and Kinect type technology, or have an iPad plugged into a large display so that people could interact on the tablet with a large screen showing their interactions, but neither of those felt like the most faithful translation of the experience.. It was really important to us to retain that crystal clarity of the imagery and to use touch screens to translate the experience we re developing for the iPad to a live festival audience, and so we decided on large scale touch screen displays.. Creative director Michaele Jordana with the installation at Hot Docs.. While the documentary is being built for iOS, the installation is built in HTML and runs in Chrome.. In terms of user experience, it s not a direct translation of the app-doc experience, because in a live festival setting, the context of how the project is experienced and interacted with is different, and so we needed to make adjustments to make the experience the best it could be for the live audience.. For instance, in the app, in interactive mode, you can progress from scene to scene by swiping the screen, which gives viewers the time and ease to explore interactive content before proceeding in the story; with an installation, you can t depend on having an audience member always around to swipe the story forward, and you want the content to be dynamic and equally engaging for someone passing by as it is for someone who is directly engaging, so we decided that for this setting, the content needs to progress on its own.. Since the story moves forward on its own, the interactive hot spots” in the installation version are timed in thematically, but also rhythmically, so that they seamlessly expand the narrative and the experience when they are triggered.. Because  ...   especially in the documentary film festival setting!.. It s up now, and the early response has been so positive I think people are really hungry for, and excited about, new ways of engaging with documentary.. It s delighting to make discoveries on your own, as you watch and guide your own experience with an interactive piece, and watching others engage with the installation has been great!.. Want to know more? Check out this recent interview with Ramona about the project.. For the more technically minded how did you go about the process of scaling the work up?.. Our primary platform is the iPad, which has a screen size of 1024 768.. All of our video content is shot HD, and luckily, early in the process, we decided that we would produce all of the art work at a higher resolution than the tablet output.. This was partly to account for retina displays and getting the absolute most exquisite image on every device, but also to give us the freedom to version the project and repurpose content for different screens, setting and audiences… and this was months before we even knew we d be creating an installation for Hot Docs!.. The concept for the Hot Docs installation was to produce a large scale touch screen version of the tablet experience, for a large audience in a public space.. We wanted to version the tablet experience into a more cinematic experience, for festival attendees, while keeping the magic of the interactivity and touch interface.. We settled on 55 inch HD screens because they are the perfect balance of large enough to be eye catching as an installation, but not too large for people to engage with and interact with.. 55 inches is big, especially on an HD screen that people are standing arms length from, so the images need to be crisp! There was a lot of fine tuning, finding the right balance between resolution and file size, to achieve crisp, clean imagery on these large screens without bogging down the playback with heavy file sizes.. There was some creative re-framing, too, as the aspect ratio switched up from 3:4 to 16:9.. If you re at Hot Docs and have some how missed the installation, it s in the main lobby of the TIFF Bell Lightbox until the 4 May.. Tomorrow Ramona will also be part of the Hot Docs Industry panel:.. Tablet Strategies: New Directions of Interactive Documentary.. , speaking on the incredible creative storytelling potential of new platforms, including the tablet..

  • Title: Can we measure the impact of an i-doc? Kat Cizek in the last episode of the UX Series - i-Docs
    Descriptive info: The last question of.. the UX Series.. is the one million dollars question: how do we understand, and measure, the impact in an i-doc?.. What is the time-frame we should consider in the evaluation? Is it about the number of people exposed to our message? Is it about telling others about our documentary and issue? It is about changing attitudes? Is it about wanting to know more? Is it about wanting to be involved in a solution? Is it about considering the effect on the subjects rather than on the audiences?.. The reality is that it could be all of the above, and none of these are clearly quantifiable shifts.. Google Analytics offers us the possibility to track behaviours on our websites: clicks, page visits, interaction paths and time spent on content.. My first interview, with.. Harry Davies from Google.. is all about this: what can we measure with the tools that we have right now.. What I found fascinating is to discover how Google is trying to master both quantitative and qualitative information about user behaviors.. in a clear attempt to go beyond what the user did iand to start tackling WHY the user did something.. If we listen to Google, and to marketing people, we have the impression that digital media really allows us to know our users/audience but is this true? As.. Kat Cizek.. , NFB s Director of Highrise, points out in her interview we are still struggling to understand  ...   pursue audience analysis.. Production money will be more available if one can prove a track record of success stories, and the overall cultural marketing trend pushes us to confuse success with traffic numbers.. In the commercial world new tools are being build to be ever more efficient in tracking our users behaviours.. Should we make use of such tools?.. Clint Beharry.. , from the Harmony Institute, tell us how their new free web application, ImpactSpace, works at mapping media impact by using trend analysis, social media content spread and similar documentaries s positioning.. Is such a contextual approach able to balance Google Analytics insular approach (the analysis of the single website out of its media and social context)? As Clint says there needs to be a tool that is focused for storytellers to understand impact beyond hard numbers and that allows them to look beyond their own product and look at the big picture.. Look at what other people have done in the past, learn from their own mistakes.. Finally, what is the value of one to one interviews and user experience surveys?.. Kate Nash,.. keynote speaker at i-Docs 2014.. , will present us the result of a long qualitative research she has done to evaluate the impact of three current i-docs.. What does the qualitative approach offers us that gets forgotten in the quantitative logic? If you want to be part of this debate, join us at i-Docs in a few days time!..

  • Title: The Awra Amba Experience: collaboration, crowd-funding and community - i-Docs
    Descriptive info: The.. Awra Amba Experience.. is an incredible project which I first encountered at i-Docs 2012, where Paulina Tervo (project producer/director/lead) presented the initial stages of the interactive documentary and introduced us to this inspiring community.. Two years on and the project is nearing the end of a.. crowd-funding campaign.. that aims to get the interactive documentary finished and online.. I caught up with Paulina and Serdar Ferit (director/cinematographer/editor) to see how the project has developed and how crowd-funding has affected their overall process.. So for those who aren t aware of the campaign, interactive documentary and your work with Awra Amba, could you give us a quick rundown of the project?.. We have known the.. Awra Amba Community.. since 2004 and have watched them grow and develop since then.. In 2010, we started working in partnership with the community on an innovative, interactive documentary for multiple platforms, which aims to tell their story in a comprehensive and engaging way to a global audience.. The Awra Amba Experience.. invites you to explore the village through a 360° immersive landscape and discover Awra Amba s way of life and philosophies in 10 interactive real life environments, each linked to a different global theme.. The experience, which will be available on computers and tablets, is based on the tour that visitors are given when they visit Awra Amba in person (hence the name of the project).. Inside each interactive environment (such as the school, the weaving workshop, the assembly hall etc), users meet the people of Awra Amba and are able to explore over 90 minutes of fascinating stories, through short films and multimedia.. A preview of the interactive experience.. The experience will ask the user questions throughout their visit, creating a tailor-made journey for each visitor, based on their interest.. Having explored the content, users can join in an on-going discussion about the theme in each interactive environment.. A member from the Awra Amba community will be available for a live chat with the audience once a week, answering questions but also having the possibility to ask the audience questions.. We are working hard to design a version of the project that can be used in classrooms, to introduce children to concepts such as gender equality, sustainability and democracy.. We are at a stage where the prototype is ready and a lot of the content has been edited.. We are raising funds on.. Indiegogo.. to be able to finalise all the multimedia content, programme the user experience and turn it into a tablet app.. Why did you decide to make the Awra Amba Experience an interactive documentary?.. In 2008 we made a 30-minute documentary in Awra Amba.. It was screened all over the world at festivals, museums and broadcast on Link TV and other online platforms.. It prompted a huge number of questions about the way the community lives and is set up.. At the same time we took the film back to Awra Amba, who were very excited by the fact that people all over the world were engaged by their story.. We had long discussions with Zumra and other community members about how they would like to use the film.. The Awra Amba community also expressed a wish to connect with people outside.. At that time there was no internet connection in Awra Amba, but they were aware of the power of the internet.. We came to the collective conclusion that we should extend the documentary and use the internet as the main platform to tell it.. Serdar and I have both worked on participatory media projects in the past  ...   understand what we are working on, so that they feel empowered to share the project within their networks, helping us grow our audience.. The feedback from the screenings also helped us identify the areas which we need to work on more to make the user experience better, easier to understand and more engaging.. You decided to crowd fund the last part of the interactive documentary what pushed you to do this and how had the project been funded up to this point?.. Crowd-funding is one of the trickiest ways of financing your project.. You are really opening yourself up in public and have to be very aware of how you come across to lots of different people.. You also have to be able to take and respond to criticism in a timely manner.. It s a process that has taught us many things about audience engagement, building a community around your project / issue, and it has even helped us shape the project and define our core audience.. [Crowd-funding] has even helped us shape the project and define our core audience.. We decided to run a campaign after we had tried all possible avenues for financing the iDoc.. We have come a long way already, and need only a small amount to finish it so that we can launch it online.. The development and production of the project has been financed primarily by the Fledgling Fund in the US, along with a grant from the Finnish AVEK and CBA Worldview.. Last year we also did a short crowd-funding campaign in Finland.. What do you think the differences are, in terms of funding and support, between making an interactive documentary and making a linear one?.. The problem is there are no clear financial models for interactive documentaries.. When pitching the project, we were always asked if it was a website designed to complement a TV or feature doc.. As iDoc makers, I believe that we need to look beyond the traditional film financiers and explore new industries, such as social entrepreneurship funds, publishing, arts, technology etc.. iDocs are a new emerging genre, and the beauty is that you can get really creative, by mixing technology with art, traditional documentary film and build in social change goals, that is why I think we can not limit ourselves to only documentary funding.. From your experiences, is crowd funding something you would try for other projects in the future?.. I think it s something you can do only once if you re asking for money from your closest friends, family and colleagues.. If you have a community who are supporting any project you do, such as Timo Vuorensola s Iron Sky, I think it s possible to crowd fund repeatedly.. But that means you are really pre-selling your next project to your existing fans and that fan base needs to be huge.. The funding campaign for this project finishes this Friday and every little really helps as it s running on a flexible funding model so everything raised will go towards making this interactive documentary a reality:.. We would like people to take a few minutes to watch our trailer, which explains the project in a nutshell, and share the link far and wide with their friends, family and colleagues to help us bring out this globally significant story and start conversations that can inspire us all to change our own societies for the better..
