An Interactive Documentary

High School Students from Educational Video Center

About this project:

We are a group of youth producers from the Educational Video Centerโ€™s Tuesday/Thursday New Media Arts Program. We are creating an interactive documentary on how the coronavirus pandemic has impacted our lives as well as the lives of vulnerable populations. We specifically focused on incarcerated people and NYC students facing inequity.

The interactive documentary is housed in a website. When a viewer enters the site, it asks the viewer a question. Based on the answer, the viewer will be led to a certain part of the documentary for a personalized experience.

The aim of the project is to build empathy and understanding of how people are impacted by the pandemic and resources and information to support vulnerable populations during the pandemic.

More about this project:

The video is a trailer for our interactive documentary/website. It pulls from video diaries created by the students from the workshop.

The photos capture the following aspects of our process:
Wireframe of the interactive documentary, a screenshot of an archival documentary created by youth producers in the late 1980s to understand why history matters when understanding inequity in education today, and a screen shot of a documentary from the NYT on incarceration that is included in our project.
