About this book

This collection of essays by Australian based practitioner–theorists brings together new research on interactive documentary making. The chapters explore how documentary theory and practice is influenced by digitisation, mobile phones, and new internet platforms. The contributors highlight the questions raised for documentary makers and scholars as new production methods, narrative forms, and participation practices emerge. The book presents an introduction to documentary techniques shaped by new digital technologies, and will appeal to documentary scholars, students, and film-makers alike.

Reviews

“This timely collection focuses in on how media making intersects with documentary scholarship through a distinctly antipodean perspective. As a ‘conversation between scholarly research, creative practice, documentary and networked time-based media’ it questions and challenges the predominance of narrative based approaches, providing a welcome addition to the growing body of literature on interactive documentary practices.” (Judith Aston, Senior Lecturer in Filmmaking and Creative Media, University of the West of England, Bristol, UK. Co-founder of i-Docs and co-editor of I-Docs: the Evolving Practices of Interactive Documentary, 2017)
