Notes from the Tribeca Film Institute Storytelling Innovation Lab

By Program Development Lead, Ben Moskowitz

For the past few years, Mozilla has been in dialogue with the documentary film community about the advantages of the web—as a distribution medium, but more importantly as a creative medium. We are not so much interested in storytelling on the web as we are in storytelling of the web.

We’re interested in this stuff because it advances the open web platform—it helps drive innovations in interactive design and open technologies like HTML5 and Javascript.

But we have a deeper interest in this stuff, stemming from who we are as a public interest organization. We have a theory that web-native stories will be especially good for bridging inspiration and action. That is: if you get really good at web-native storytelling, you will be able to more effectively mobilize an audience to go fix the world.

This seed of an idea brought us into partnership with the Tribeca Film Institute, with support from Ford Foundation, to produce a week long “Storytelling Innovation Lab.” Ingrid Kopp, director of digital initiatives at TFI, has written about the lab here.

The Lab invited 7 filmmaker teams and over 30 designers, developers, and technologists to the Centre for Social Innovation in Chelsea, to produce concepts of how to use the web for more effective social-issue storytelling. Then, each team produced a complete storytelling project, from concept to code, in just 5 days.

By all accounts this was an unreasonable task. But the teams amply delivered.

“Video arrived on the web in a small box, separated from the incredible data and content all around it,” says Merkley. “Popcorn changes all of that.”

Launching Popcorn Maker 1.0 at the Mozilla Festival
In November, Mozilla will launch Popcorn Maker 1.0 at the Mozilla Festival in London, UK. In the mean time, we’re making this new beta version available for testing to coincide with today’s TED talk launch. While the team is still polishing the final release, this beta is fully functional and ready for anyone eager for a first look.

Ryan Merkley: Online video — annotated, remixed and popped

Check out today’s TEDTalk featuring Mozilla’s COO Ryan Merkley:
http://www.ted.com/talks/ryan_merkley_online_video_annotated_remixed_and_popped.html


"Videos on the web should work like the web itself: Dynamic, full of links, maps and information that can be edited and updated live, says Mozilla Foundation COO Ryan Merkley. On the TED stage he demos Popcorn Maker, a new web-based tool for easy video remixing. (Watch a remixed TEDTalk using Popcorn Maker — and remix it yourself.)”

I’m proud and excited beyond words to see the running notes from the work being done in Chicago by a group of students and a facilitator from the Mozilla Foundation’s Hive NYC on a number of video projects using Mozilla’s Popcorn technology and my novel Little Brother.
