Visible Evidence (VE) is the international conference for documentary film and media, that takes place annually in different countries around the world. Docuverse’s Hannah, Franziska, and Kim, are all presenting this year at the conference at Montana State University in Bozeman, MT.
Today, we held a pre-conference meetup at a cafe in downtown Bozeman to meet people attending the conference interested in expanded and interactive documentary. We all shared our research topics and interests in expanded documentary forms and the certain challenges we face as practice based researchers within this space. We covered a broad range of topics including software, funding, technology, content, form, and process. Further, we talked more broadly about practice based research giving international perspectives on expectations, methodologies, and the relationship between the creative and theory.
Overall, it was nice to sit down and have a chat over juices and coffee as a gentle warm up into the four day conference which begins tomorrow.
