2010 Producers Institute Projects
This exciting new series pioneers brave new models of storytelling around the world, and the impact of story-driven technology to inspire social movements. You will hear stories about how art and technology are transforming global communities -- from kids in India putting their slums on Google Maps and fighting polio with mobile phones, to stories from the Guatemalan genocide visualized as cultural data in a breathtaking online archive. These videos put a startling fresh face on the power of stories and new media tools to drive social change - from text messaging platforms, Second Life, mobile games, visualized cultural data, and augmented reality applications, to interactive maps that layer news, environmental data and community content, and immersive documentary formats that are changing moviemaking around the world.
