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 the role of the maker rapidly transforming. Questions abound. How can filmmakers and technologists access the financial, technical, and artistic resources to push the field forward? 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 filmmakers at OpenDocLab and in the field.
