Academic Notes

  • Strategies of Participation: The Who, What and When of Collaborative Documentaries, by Sandra Gaudenzi
    "With the rise of social networks in the past 10 years, and the general acceptance of Web 2.0's collaborative logic, online documentary producers have been tempted to invite their audiences into what was previously considered their very own walled garden: the production of the documentary itself."
  • Sounds and the City: Popular Music, Place and Globalization, by B. Lashua, K. Spracklen, S. Wagg
    "ODOE's use of crowdsourcing offers an eye-catching illustration of the participatory scale, immediacy and interconnectivity of global social movement and media making"
  • CONVERGENCE MEDIA, PARTICIPATION CULTURE AND THE DIGITAL VERNACULAR: TOWARDS THE DEMOCRATIZATION OF DOCUMENTARY, by Richard Vickers
    "The project has developed with annual global film collaborations undertaken in 2010 and 2011, aiming to achieve participation from every country in the world and create an accessible archive of diverse video. Whilst still focused on producing more traditional outputs in terms of films, the project utilizes the One Day on Earth website and social network platform to develop a community around the world, with inclusivity as one of the founding principles."
