San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
As part of DC Week, let's explore innovations in storytelling.
Advances in technology have provided storytellers with new platforms to play and experiment with. In this session, innovative storytellers will showcase their boundary-pushing projects, share their process, and discuss practical concerns like distribution, funding, and marketing.
Featured projects include: a web-based cinema project that combines verité and participatory footage; a transmedia project that fuses app production and the web; and an experiential learning and cross-media project geared towards children. This session is hosted by Felicia Pride of Pride Collaborative and The Create Daily.
More about the Featured Projects:
The Green Corps Web-Based Cinema Project
The Green Corps web-based cinema project is an experiment combining verité and participatory footage from the Green Corps feature documentary in-production with Google maps and Google Street View data to create an interactive, transmedia platform for engaging with the story, characters and green spaces profiled in the film. By situating short video vignettes of intimate reflections from the job corps trainees within an interactive Google Map of Washington DC, the Green Corps web-based cinema project provides viewers with an opportunity to self-navigate the story and better understand the relationship between the people and the land. Presented by Lance Hill of Meridian Hill Pictures.
