NEW DOCUMENTARY ECOLOGIES
EMERGING PLATFORMS, PRACTICES AND DISCOURSES
Matèria: Producció cine / vídeo / tv
Documentary remains a vital and dynamic media form, one that has persisted through decades of change in patterns of media production, distribution and reception, from its early conception in silent filmmaking, through 'new' media such as television, to the current explosion of digital platforms. New generations of documentary filmmakers, multimedia designers, online curators and social media aggregators are exploring the challenges and opportunities of a digital environment characterised as collaborative, participatory, and interactive. This book provides a unique collection of recent research into the ways in which these digital producers are adopting the 'documentary project' across digital platforms, developing new documentary practices and providing distinctive new ways for audiences to engage with reality.
