GDP: a Canadian web-doc and a great delicious reference page

“GDP: measuring the human side of the Canadian economic crisis” is a web-documentary that tries to portrait a nation in economic crisis by interviewing people from all over Canada and asking them how they are coping with the economic crisis. Have a look to my archive entry to know more about this great project! It is currently in production and it will keep evolving till September 2010.

The production team of GDP has also opened to the public their delicious page. Over time they have collected  a great list of docu-webs! This is a great research resource for anybody interested in interactive documentaries… have a look to and discover more photo essays and docu-journalism pieces than you can ever imagine. Well done to GDP’s team to open so generously to all of us such a great archive!

    Hi Sandra,
    I came across your site a few months ago and I think it’s fabulous! I have just started a PhD at Swinburne University in Melbourne Australia on almost the same topic – naturally I take quite a different approach, in fact I’m hoping to build a web site that will facilitate a collaborative documentary. And while many such sites currently exist I’m hoping that I can differentiate my project from others by allowing the community to have access to all the raw footage collected, with the view of enabling them to remake their own documentary from scratch.
    I haven’t seen anyone do that yet but you might have a better idea having been in the space for a while? Anyway – I just wanted to introduce myself and comment on your wonderful site and wealth of useful information you’re providing in this area.
    I’d love to pick your brain at some stage and run the broader idea past you, if that’s ok.

    Hi Jeremy,
    thanks for your comment. Of course I am always happy to discuss about ideas. Maybe you should have a look to my posts about “open source documentary” – and to the article that I uploaded some time ago- as they cover some projects that have tried to open their footage and to share it online.
    Keep us posted,
