Glasshouse Birdman

A ‘video portrait’ on a wildlife carer, created as a proof-of-concept to develop a framework for making a online interactive documentary.

Background

Glasshouse Birdman (2008) was produced in the Videodefunct System as proof-of-concept prototype to pitch to industry for further and research and development. The work is designed to explore the articulation and dissemination of audiovisual knowledge online. Glasshouse Birdman examines alternative approaches towards documentary making and recording the way people interact with place. In an exploration of form and content, the work analyses the design of web systems for producing and publishing web nteractive documentaries, along with production models for recording and classifying video content.

Glasshouse Birdman was submitted into a national Screen Based Production Review (triple-peer) as part of the Australian Screen Production Education & Research Association (ASPERA) Conference 2008.
