... and more Questions: Seminar!

Suggestion of Links/Important Resources for my research:

Here are a few books i'm trying to get more information on, which may be of importance to this work:

New Documentary



 


Cultures In Webs: Working In Hypermedia With The Documentary Image




Documentaries: and How to Make Them





Digital Film Making





Managing User-generated Content and Defining Value in the Digital Age: Questioning Authority


As you can see, most of these are about how to make a documentary: i tried to find some who specifically talked about web docs, but the closest i found was this. The last one should be useful to write the context about user-generated content, but i suppose there are a lot of papers about that around.

As a curiosity, some recent interviews from the Jornal de Notícias newspaper about Erasmus students (but in Oporto): http://jn.sapo.pt/Reportagens/Interior.aspx?content_id=1379335


What's relevant in what's been made in this area of investigation so far? (3 examples)/What are the most important results coming from those investigations?

 

This specific area of investigation doesn't have much papers or dissertations: I found that, in the web 2.0 area and the User-Generated content field, there is a lot of information. But in the opposite pole, I have found only one paper specifically about web documentaries : "Web-documentário – Uma ferramenta pedagógica para o mundo contemporâneo", that doesn't touch the UGC part. In a meeting i had with my coordinator (Prof. Rui Raposo), it was suggested we try to contact the authors of similar papers to get more information. In sequence, my coordinator found a interesting paper, that looks at the audiovisual UGC coming from an audience that is also a collaborator, but in a web series: "The Community as Artist: The Show with Ze Frank".

 

I have also found that a course in the Film and Media Department Hunter College, New York was about Web Documentaries, and its page has useful links, but with a problem: they are _ALL_ broken.

 

Probably, the course of action will be trying to nitpick what I can from each of those papers and create a text that links them. I'll probably also try to contact a few of those writers, to see if I can obtain more information/similar works.

As I said before, I returned to see your last creation: the blog design!
Nice banner and a very cheerful use of colours! I like it.^^
[ I think Marta Cogumelah has the Digital Film Making book, ask her ;) ]

Who Am I?


 

My name is Hugo Branquinho.



I'm 22 years old, currently taking a Master's degree in Multimedia and Communications - Digital Audiovisual. This blog is where i describe my 2nd (and hopefully the last) year in it, where i write a dissertation about the I am Erasmus project.



I'm a multimedia artist (or at least i try) whose passions include everything that relates to video, motion graphics, animation, illustration, photography, multimedia.



You can take a look at my personal website and personal blog (they are currently under construction, so here's the link to my YouTube folio). You can also take a look at my deviantArt webpage.
