Screenly

Traballos

El pasado 31 de octubre presentamos en Barcelona, en el marco del festival In-Edit, el proyecto Screenly, una plataforma de distribución de cine en salas bajo demanda. Es un concepto novedoso en España aunque ya se está poniendo en marcha en otros países con experiencias como Tugg (Estados Unidos) o WeWantCinema (Holanda). Lo que dimos a conocer fue el arranque del proyecto, que verá la luz a mediados de 2014 con una fase piloto en Barcelona y luego se extenderá por el resto del territorio estatal. La plataforma web la desarrollará A Navalla Suíza en Santiago de Compostela.

Doc&Tech Lab at Webdox Conference

Obradoiros

webdox

Today and tomorrow my mates at A Navalla Suíza are giving a workshop at Webdox Conference 2013 in Leuven (Belgium), about open video and HTML5 oriented to documentary makers. Here is the program:

Exploring HTLM5 and Open video

This part is oriented to everyone, filmmakers with no skills, general public and coders with little knowledge of HTML5. This session will show you how to mix and remix video, audio, photos and links using the internet. You will develop audiovisual mix-tapes from online audiovisual sources.

What will you learn and do?

You will get an introduction to the creative possibilities of HTML5: HTML, CSS, Javascript.
Online video and audio: why it is important that video and audio were HTML elements, video/audio formats, browsers, interaction with HTML elements
You’ll watch a video in a HTML document, check the code and features.
Use of javascript to develop video/audio events
Practice: Using the native javascript API
Take a look at frameworks and tools to develop video/audio on the net
Use of popcorn.js, $media and audio APIs
You will design a collaborative project.

One of the options for that collaborative project is to use some of the material provided by filmmakers, hack it and transform it in a web-document.

Web-generated video
There are new ways to approach content and strategies to use it in webdocs. Everything will be online.
We’ll show you some of the options available to create web-generated content and how to apply that content to documentary projects.  This session is oriented to coders and to filmmakers with some knowledge of HTML5, APIs and Javascript.

What will you learn and do?
Catch-up to web and video: HTML5, Javascript and APIs.
Learn strategies of web-generated content: procedural content-generation, real-time data, natural language analysis, visualization of multimedia content and broadcastification of social media.
Strategies for integrate content created by independent users/spectators.
Practice. From a film provided by users, design, planing and building of a demo mixing web-generated content and video. If attendants cannot provide content, the workshop will work on free online content

And yes, a picture of the first day just came from Leuven:

Cromosoma Cinco

Traballos

A semana pasada RTVE estreou en multipantalla o documental Cromosoma Cinco, de María Ripoll e Lisa Pram. Que quere dicir “en multipantalla”? Pois que o documental para televisión, que xa colleitara un grande éxito no pasado Festival de Málaga, puido verse por fin na pequena pantalla, no programa Versión Española de La2, e que o mesmo día lanzouse a versión web, un pequeno webdocumental no que participamos desde A Navalla Suíza, da man dos amigos de Permanent.

A pesar dos poucos recursos e tempo de execución, quedamos moi contentos do resultado e sobre todo da experiencia de traballar con Permanent, coas directoras e co equipo do Lab de RTVE.es. Oxalá poidamos volver traballar xuntos máis cedo que tarde.
