AixòNostre is a transmedia documentary about the current countryside society in the small town of Osor, La Selva (Catalunya). This project came from the interest of six students of the degree of Audiovisuals and Multimedia from Escola Universitària ERAM (University of Girona) to explain the importance of the rural schools in the countryside society. The project starts at the rural school of Osor, to explain from there the relations and the cooperation between people.
Most of the countryside values started to get lost unconsciously in the industrialization period and they are still being lost on the current situation of Globalization. Nowadays, there are only a few people who enjoy the “countryside life”, and sometimes they don’t even know it. For this reason we are asking ourselves: is it important to be aware of this lifestyle? There should be an inverse process to the industrialization to recover some aspects abouts the countryside life. Are people conscious of these changes?
Interactive documentary, an innovative support
The interactive documentary or web documentary (webdoc) is a non common audiovisual production. The website is supported with a complementary multimedia tools to create a new user experience. On webdocs, the website becomes the distribution support of the documentary,exposed in a non linear way and it is viewed for the user like an adventure. The user has to to take decisions to go forward into the history.
Why do we need the contributions
The contributions will be used to cover the transport to Osor. The members of the team live in Girona, so this means that we need to drive the 27km that separates Osor from Girona twice a day. We will as well use the contributions to buy technical stuff for the project (Hard Disc, Memory cards, etc.). And we will finally use the contributions to hire the website domain and to buy the materials for the campaign promotion (DVD’s, school stuff, merchandising, etc.). To be able to do this part of the project we have calculated that the minimum quote, is about 1457€.
In the case that we overcome the quote, we would like to develop the project farther. We would like to edit a project book and an exposition to show the experiences of the characters of our project. The exposition will present the hard job that the teachers are doing in the school and could be used to show their life in the big cities. To be able to do this part of the project we have calculated that the minimum quote, is about 3139€.
Currently we are in the production phase, this phase will go on until January 2015, the month that we will stop the shooting to start the post production. The closure of the project will be between march and june of 2015, coinciding with the end of the scholar course. The final launch for the documentary is dated for the middle of july, giving way to the final phase of the project.
