We continue our month of exploring interactivity as a “story disruptor”. Web platforms are emerging that now make it possible to remix videos and add layers of context, effectively extending post-production indefinitely. How does this effect ways we edit and tell stories?
Our 2nd interactive Vine Vid, is another excerpt from the interview I and editor Joe Botana (@zbutcher) had with Brett Gaylor, documentary filmmaker and director of Mozilla’s Popcorn.js project. In this short clip, Brett talks about the difference between Popcorn.js and Popcorn Maker, gives an example of a Popcorn video and makes the case for iteration and experimentation.

In our 1st Vine Vid, Brett talks about his background as a documentarian, his frustrations with the limitations of early Web distribution and how he convinced an Internet titan to care about the future of filmmaking.
