[Nettime-nl] Workshop Interactive film

Dear owners of the Nettime mailinglist,

Would you please send the following announcement to the 
members of your list. I think it's interesing for them.

With kind regards,

Barbara Bekkers

Workshop Interactive Film @ Berlinale 2004
5 - 9 February 2004, public presentation 10 February.

In a group of 16 international filmmakers you use your own 
footage to make an interactive film in a 5-day workshop.

The workshop is a pressure cooker style, intense process 
where you get to know the possibilities of interactive 
storytelling, design your own project, discuss it with 
peers and experienced trainers, and build your own working 

Participants can bring 40 minutes of footage maximum per 
person, or they can use material provided by us.

To make their interactive stories, the participants use 
the elegant and easy to learn Korsakow System.

All participants are assisted personally in realising 
their workshop projects. No technical knowledge of new 
media is required. You have to have experience in making 
films though!

More information on the Korsakow System and set up of the 
workshop can be found at http://www.korsakow.org

The combination of film making with interactive media 
offers the possibility to explore new ways of telling film 
stories, both in form and in content. An interactive 
presentation of material can offer the viewer the 
possibility to explore side stories to the main themes in 
more detail. Then there is the native possibility in 
interactive narrative projects to offer different or even 
opposing perspectives on the same themes parallel to each 
other, forming each other's context. Furthermore 
interactive projects can open up 'issue spaces', where the 
viewer ('user') can enter an actual discussion with the 
perspectives of the author on a theme or issue.
In this workshop special attention goes to editing for 
interactive purposes. The key issue of interactive 
narration and also the central question of this workshop 
is: how can the users actions and choices be integrated 
meaningfully in the meaning of an interactive story?

Where, when and how much?
Workshop days are Thursday 5 February till Monday 9 
February with a public presentation on Tuesday 10
