Digital Revolution has spent the last few months interviewing some of the most influential, inspirational and engaged individuals on the web today, asking how the web is changing world economies
, nation states
, human behaviour
, and levelling the media
Only natural, then, in this connected company, that the production teams wouldn't be able to cling to the 'old-media' film maker's luxury of the camera pointing only at the documentary subject; and certainly folly to imagine that the interviewer would retain a monopoly of the questions.
Here are a few examples of these moments where the film crew and Aleks have become the subjects of their subjects' own films and, of course, put them on the web for the world to view.
1 - Tim Berners-Lee 'Ghana Aleks Krotoski: turning the tables'
2 - The BBC visit my place for the 'Digital Revolution' documentary
The programme four team find themselves discussing camera lenses and in the light of the camera's eye as they prepare to interview Mashable
's Ben Parr
3 - BBC's Aleks Krotoski (@aleksk) is a 'Woman of Mystery'
At the same shoot, presenter Aleks Krotoski is caught tweeting in the kitchen by her prospective interviewee, Ben Parr
and faces her own moment in Ben's spotlight.
Is this a glimpse of the future of open source documentary - an infinite feedback loop of camera on camera study and interplay? The new age of the 'prosumer
' and 'interviewerees'?
