Abstract

An interactive documentary project, 24-hours.in explores opportunities for participation, collaboration and the potential democratisation of documentary production. Utilising user-generated video captured on mobile phones and available devices, the project is participatory, with the audience contributing documentary videos around the theme of 24-hours in a city.

With reference to Dziga Vertov’s seminal 1929 documentary film ‘Man with a Movie Camera’, the aim is for the videos to document the cities, the people that live there and their daily lives. Moving beyond the user-generated content model, the project will build up a database of location specific documentary material and aim to create a new system for collaborative documentary production and user-curated content.

Ubiquitous and pervasive mobile camera phones and smart devices offer the opportunity for the democratization of documentary production. These devices are in the hands of the many, potentially facilitating a collaborative and cumulative vision of truth about humanity and life in the 21st century to emerge.

Awarded the Bogdanka Poznanović Award at the 15th International Video Festival VIDEOMEDEJA, Novi Sad, Serbia, December 2011.
