Research: Data-driven Interactive Documentary, by C. Weber

As part of research for a Master’s at Plymouth U. Data-driven and interactive documentary models, using limited and selective branching narratives to explore and illustrate certain key story points, rather than getting lost in too many possibilities. These can range from simple but immersive explorative educational formats for teaching history to kids, to more adult, data-driven immersive documentary reconstructions analysing the forces at play on both sides of a given social or political equation at some point of civil conflict.
