i-Docs 2012: The International Lab/Symposium on Interactive Documentary



Activism | Journalism | Social Media | HTML5 | Experience Design | Transmedia Narratives | Augmented Reality Games | Mobile Tech | Second Screens | Collaborative Authorship |

All of the above and more….i-docs.org

Any non-fictional story that uses digital technology to give the viewer an active role in the negotiation of ‘reality’ can be an interactive documentary (i-doc). An online datablog at the Guardian, a pervasive game in the streets of London, an educational 3D story on Second Life, or a film which links documentary footage to live data feeds…

i-Docs gives visibility to these emerging forms of factual storytelling and takes an international perspective on emerging trends:

· Journalism is becoming a new form of activism
· Mobile technologies are opening new markets to documentary makers
· HTML5 – new authoring tools are being launched to facilitate the production of web narratives
· Augmented reality games and layered locative experiences are crossing over into documentary storytelling

Following 2011′s sold-out inaugural event i-Docs 2012 is now expanded to run over two full days. This year’s very strong line-up includes keynote speakers reflecting cutting-edge and award winning work:

· Jigar Mehta (18 Days in Egypt)
· Brett Gaylor (rip! A Remix Manifesto, Popcorn Maker, Popcorn project, Mozilla Foundation
· Submarine Channel Award-winning creators of visually-led transmedia projects (Collapsus)
· Katerina Cizek (Highrise)
· Esteemed documentary scholar Brian Winston
· Interactive pioneer Max Whitby
· Subtlemob creator Duncan Speakman

An important feature of this year’s symposium will be sessions examining some of the key emerging tools for authoring and creating web documentary – Popcorn maker, 3WDoc and Klynt. See the whole line up, abstracts and more at i-docs.org
