Re-Enchantment and Prison Valley – two online documentaries worth seeing

I mentioned the new ABC multiplatform project “Re-Enchantment” in class, working across ABCOnline, ABCTV and ABCRadio. Please go and check it out. The writer/ director is UTS MAP academic Sarah Gibson. It’s very lush! Interested to know what you think. http://www.abc.net.au/tv/re-enchantment/

Another interesting online documentary is Prison Valley, which came out last year. A very rich interactive experience about a town in the US with 17 prisons. Interesting doco. Multi-award winning. http://prisonvalley.arte.tv/?lang=en

Funny, but i find that both of these projects are very reminiscent of earlier interactive works on CD-ROM. Obviously we were doing something right back then…
