Resilience

Resilience is an interactive documentary about community resilience in the face of drought and climate change. The web interface was designed using the metaphor of a weaving loom, which weaves together short video clips into unique 5-minute stories. Each short film documents two small communities in the Andes organizing to restore their local high mountain watersheds. The story of how this interactive storytelling system was designed is below.

Each time the interface is loaded a different digital composition is woven.

Photographic Haiku

Photographic Haiku

I created what I call a photographic haiku as a part of the Resilience storytelling system. These consist of three images and three interview quotes woven together visually and interactively under each conceptual thread. Click to view (choose “skip intro” and click on a topic area such as “Biodiversity”)

A multi-layered Story

This is the documentary script, a woven story fabric that has similar documentary clips organized along “conceptual threads” or topic areas along the x and y axis.

Film Poems

Example 1-2 minute video clip that would be woven together with three other clips to create a 5-7 minute micro-documentary.
