Transmedia is the word of the day! A lot of energy has been going to the newest generation of multi-platform, interactive, crowd-sourced nonfiction work. The brains behind these experiments are most often creative partnerships between producers and technologists, many hatched at the hackathons happening around the globe. Hot Docs just hosted a marvelous sampling of this work at their Hot Hacks event
. Thanks to the brilliant leadership of Ingrid Kopp, Tribeca Film Institute (TFI) organized an entire day, open to the public, sampling and discussing this work at TFI Interactive: The Future of Storytelling in the Digital Age
. The BAVC Producers Institute for New Media Technologies
has been leading in this space since their beginnings in 2007 ( applications for their next institute open up this June). And in our own backyard in Boston, FRONTLINE teamed up with PRX
to create a hack day supporting their films.
