The Open Documentary Lab at MIT

MIT has launched a documentary lab. Why? Because at this moment of media change, the opportunities for documentarians have never been greater. Yet it is also a time of confusion, with narrative structures, technologies, business models and even the role of the maker rapidly transforming. Questions abound. How can filmmakers, technologists, and scholars develop the resources-- financial, technical, and artistic-- to support this new field? How can traditional filmmakers make the leap to interactive? Innovation is key. Surrounded by cutting-edge technologists and researchers, MIT's OpenDocLab is opening its virtual and physical doors.

Beyond an overview of new developments in the field and at MIT, we will present OpenDocLab's initiatives and the resources available to storytellers. By participating in Lab activities, visiting artists and makers not only explore the potential of new technologies, they collaborate with MIT researchers to shape the storytelling practices of tomorrow.
