CILECT Congress 2019 at VGIK, Moscow, Russia: registration open!
A quantum leap of the contemporary media culture over the past few decades resulted in the development of a new information-oriented society shifting from periodicals to cinema, television, and online news media and on to the new media and mobile applications. In this changing context a major role is played by the Internet which expands the media culture universe not only by enriching the capabilities of one-way communication but also by establishing quite a new form of dramaturgy – a dialogical, an interactive one.
Both in new media and in social networking an ever-greater popularity is being now gained by storytelling. Within the net communication the stories are translated by a series of statements. Thus, text- or video bloggers in the social networks employ the dramatic structure of the TV series which make the audience keep watching some characters day by day. This kind of dramaturgy is often based on the so called crowd-sourcing that is team research, creative activity and voting. In which case dramaturgy is faced with one of the essential characteristics of the contemporary media universe – that of the nonlinear narration.
• Dramaturgy and the new forms of metacommunication; new forms of reality; interpenetration of fiction, documentary and animation into hybrid forms;
• Interactivity, hypertextuality, nonlinearity, intertextuality and other basic principles of the new kind of dramaturgy; video blogs, “do-it-yourself” (DIY) or “film from scratch”, interactive cinema, video for cell phones (the language of close-ups), computer games; new characters – the human being design;
• New media script formats with reference to multimedia and cinema creative work; new/old means (texts, video, photos, pictures, animated graphics and others) as part of the script;
• The school and the tutor roles in the 21st century; the development of a student’s creative potential – modern teaching technologies and methods.
