This is a must-watch for anyone interested in interactive and collaborative documentary. Professor Jon Dovey, of the Digital Cultures Research Centre in the UK, gave a keynote speech to the Expanding Documentary conference I went to last December in Auckland, and it’s now available to view online. Dovey has a wealth of stories, thoughts and ideas to share around how online documentary can be a collaborative effort and also the technological innovations occurring that are relevant to this.

About this Blog

Julia Scott-Stevenson Julia is a writer and researcher of all things documentary, and even dabbles in making them herself from time to time. She lived in the Pacific Islands of Fiji and Samoa for a few years, where she made a documentary about the inaugural Miss Tokelau beauty pageant and a short documentary about climate change in Samoa, which screened at the inaugural Pacific Climate Change Film Festival. While in the Pacific she was subjected to limited internet connectivity, and was staggered to discover the possibilities in online documentary on her return at the end of 2008. She has since been making up for lost time by undertaking a PhD researching cross-platform documentary, and also working on a database documentary about volunteers. Julia is also on the programming team for Antenna International Documentary Film Festival.
