DOC JAM Creative Lab (Leuven)
LEUVEN - Come to the world’s first ‘DOC JAM’ Creative LAB where documentary ideas are developed, disrupted and expanded. See what happens when factual ideas become multiplatform, interactive, playful and networked.
Are you a documentary producer, director, game developer, game designer or interactive with a dox interest, who want to explore the creative and commercial potential for developing new types of interactive factual content?
Do you want to gain an understanding of the different skills required to produce transmedia projects?
Do you want to learn how telling stories across multiple platforms, integrating social networking, games and interactivity can grow audiences in today’s crowded media environment?
This is not a conference! This is a jam! Be prepared to disrupt your doc!
The Creative LAB we start by answering the following key questions:
➡ Why do you need to engage audiences on multiple platforms?
➡ How do you create interactive docs?
➡ What happens when games and docs collide?
➡ How can you harness the power of social networks to grow audiences?
THEN We will develop documentary ideas in groups
THEN We will disrupt them with the help of our four experts:
Multiplatform: Mark Atkin, XO Labs, UK
Crossmedia: Brian Chirls, Three Eyed Labs, US
Interactive: Arnaud Dressen, Honkytonk Films, France
Games: Pepijn Rijnders, Belgium
Social: Patrick Bosteels, Belgium
See what happens to these concepts as they grow through the course of the day, adding interactivity, playfulness, social networking and multiple platforms. At the end of the day, the new multiplatform concepts are pitched back to the group. Are they more engaging? Will they get larger audiences? Are they new interactive concepts for today’s converged media environment?
Now you know how to do it: go disrupt your own doc!
Who can come?
The Creative LAB is a one-day creative workshop for up to 40 participants from any country, aimed at documentary producers and anyone interested in seeing what happens when factual ideas are expanded over multiple platforms.
