Gaza Sderot - Life in spite of everything IDFA DocLab 2010 | The official new media program of IDFA, showcasing new forms of documentary storytelling, digital technology and media art. Upian - web producer since 1974 MTV's 'Valemont': A Transmedia Experience Murder-Mystery Style “Valemont University was founded in 1646 under the motto Ex Sanguine Scientia – From Blood, Knowledge.” This is what awaits you if you visit the companion website for the upcoming MTV Networks’ web series, Valemont, which premieres tomorrow for a 12-episode run on MTV before heading to an online-only release of the remaining 23 episodes. I had a chance to speak with co-creator Brent Friedman of Electric Farm about this unique transmedia experience that blends product placement, ARG elements, and web content into an exciting murder mystery plotline that may or may not have a supernatural twist. The multiplatform series stars a number of notable young actors like Nikki Blonsky, Kristen Hager, Georgina Reilly and Six Feet Under’s Eric Balfour. For the specifics of how this project came together, we asked Friedman to fill us in. “Valemont originated about a year ago when Electric Farm Entertainment began discussions with MTV about producing a branded entertainment series,” said Friedman.

Inside Shelbyville Multimedia's Ambitious Immigration Project Shelbyville project kicks off with a series of “Welcoming” videos Chances are you haven’t yet heard of Shelbyville, a small rural community in Tennessee. If not, then you’re probably also unaware of the upcoming “Welcome to Shelbyville” documentary or the online project that is forging a pilot, or prototype, for communities to tell and share their own stories. So let me share my initial impressions of this remarkable, ambitious effort. Last Monday I was lucky enough to be a part of a “digital brain trust” of 20 progressive media and non-profit representatives at the Bay Area Video Coalition headquarters. What is the Shelbyville Project? Miss Marilyn, a retired public elementary school teacher who taught in Shelbyville Active Voice conceived the vision of building a story-driven web platform and brought together a team consisting of Free Range Studios, a creative services firm, and documentary filmmaker Kelly Whalen, who produced webisodes for the project.

La cité des mortes : web documentaire sur l'affaire des mortes de ciudad juarez NFB/Interactive - National Film Board of Canada At the NFB we like change. For 70 years we've experimented, innovated, and produced a legacy of technical and creative firsts in cinema, animation, and documentary. Think McLaren, Lipsett, Brittain, and Jutra; Stereoscopic 3d, VTR, and participatory media. Today, the way we create, consume, and connect with each other changes by the minute. And this evolving collection of stories reflects that reality. It's the result of artists and storytellers of all sorts utilizing new technology, to explore new forms of creation, for a new kind of Canada. The stories they're telling here are new, but share a lot in common with the work that came before: they present distinct voices, strong points-of-view, and unique perspectives. So let the conversation begin. Scary or otherwise.

Théorie du flow et webdocumentaires Avez-vous déjà entendu parler de Football Manager ? Comme son nom l’indique, ce titre est un jeu de simulation qui vous met dans la peau d’un « manager » de club de foot, un super-entraîneur qui définit la tactique de son équipe, supervise ses entraînements, décide des transferts de joueurs etc. Quand j’ai commencé à jouer à Football Manager, il y a maintenant une bonne dizaine d’années, le jeu était repoussant au possible. Et pourtant, si j’ai fini par me séparer de mon CD de Football Manager, ce n’est pas par dégoût. Régulièrement, je lançais une « petite partie » à 20 heures pour relever le nez de mon écran le lendemain matin, les oiseaux accueillant ma victoire en ligue des champions de leurs gazouillis. Alors avant d’aller plus loin, petit point théorique. Le « cognitive flow » (ou « flux cognitif ») est un concept formalisé en 1970 par le psychologue hongrois Mihály Csíkszentmihályi. Le pouvoir de Football Manager est donc de faire naître un état de flow parfait. Conclusion :

Planet Galata La Commune de Paris » Article » OWNI, Digital Journalism Nouveau coup de cœur de David Dufresne («Prison valley») pour un webdocumentaire en temps réel. Entretien avec ses auteurs, la Raspou Team. Depuis quelques jours, c’est la guerre à Paris. Une guerre de rue, une guerre artistique, un combat de street art. C’est La Commune de Paris qu’on ressuscite. La Commune de Paris est un journal, entre agit-prop et webdocumentaire en temps réel, d’un genre nouveau, simple et redoutable, signé du collectif Raspou Team. Depuis quelques jours, donc, c’est la guerre à Paris. La Commune de Paris a un but, et il est atteint: « ne pas laisser les outils (narratifs) aux vendeurs de lessive ». Pouvez-vous nous en dire plus sur la genèse de La Commune de Paris? On s’intéresse à la Commune depuis longtemps, et c’était le seul sujet pour lequel nous avions rédigé deux fiches dans notre précédent projet Désordres Publics. Ce flou est renforcé par le street art qui illustre chacun des articles. Votre idée, c’est surtout la confrontation, non?
