William Uricchio is a Professor of Comparitive Media Studies at MIT, who started Open Documentary Lab in 2012 as a research initiative to look at implications of emerging technologies & the implications for the work of documentary. The MIT Co-Creation Studio was started in either 2018 or 2019 to research methods of immersive media creation. We talk about the theory, practice, & history of immersive storytelling and the medium of documentary, as well as the R&D Progam collaboration between IDFA DocLab and MIT’s Open DocLab that was launched in 2018.
This interview was recorded on Tuesday, December 20th, 2021 as a part of a collaboration with IDFA’s DocLab to celebrate their 15th year anniversary.
