    too The teams wanted ownership and were thinking along the lines of well I m focusing on her performance career so we need to have a section that s just devoted to her performance career But that s not how the Creative Implementation Team wanted it to work They wanted there to be these connections that would link them to the work that all the different teams were doing which I think was right on Pulling it all together in the end was the most difficult part But the team that was designing the navigation had a pretty good hold on how this should all come together How many students made up the Creative Implementation Team JP There were three And five different groups JP Yes five or six Do you consider the development of the navigational structure an aspect of the writing process Is it an integral part of shaping the story during post production JP Yes it s integral to the editing process This is what I really love about Korsakow and want to explore further I need to do it more to really have a strong thought about that But yeah it s partly about writing and it s partly about editing It s partly about structuring which I think of as a writing process but then once all the videos came in then it also became about editing It s interesting because it works on both the front end and back end of the process Many filmmakers say much of the writing happens during the editing process You had a specific design going forward with the curriculum to produce a documentary Is this how you might approach a future course or do you see the potential to develop other genres in Korsakow JP I do see other genres except maybe for fiction I d be leery to do that in a class I don t know But maybe not My background is in experimental film That s where I come from What attracts me to Korsakow is that part of it can function much like an experimental film with its associative connections and the way in which it puts the onus on the viewer to seek those connections and those patterns I think that maybe there is a way that fiction could work within that but it would have to be such a loosening of fiction It would be tricky with our student body to make that work But I can imagine more experimental poetic approaches In the future I might do smaller projects that would invite students to explore a theme rather than a person or something of a more traditional documentary topic That might verge into fiction or into more experimental or avant garde kind of realms but could also live comfortably under the rubric of documentary So what might you do differently next time JP We did a few different projects in the first half of the class and then shifted over to the Korsakow project But then I realized that that could have been the entire semester doing Korsakow I think that s one thing I would change I would also rather have a student or very small groups of students do their own project instead of doing this class wide project in part because it became so clear that everyone needed to get their hands on Korsakow to really understand how it worked to really understand the process of non linear and interactive storytelling and of course to understand the unique properties of Korsakow So those are a couple of things I would do differently Certainly as much as I love Satori and the students got a tremendous amount out of it one of the most valuable aspects of this project was to know this person that we had focused on In hindsight focusing on a person was incredibly difficult I m so grateful she was as flexible and open to us as she was but I think in the future I would ask them to work on a topic or a theme as opposed to a person And I m really excited about what they might do in the future I learned so much from this process that it makes me realize that if I shifted the approach in a future class that they would just get a lot out of it too Yeah I m sure they knew going into it was experimental at all levels JP I loved that they stepped up to the challenge Would you say that building a character arc is more challenging in this format JP Yes and this is something I want to write about This came out from the final screening of the projects which we did with laser pointers as Florian likes to do It was a public screening with the class and Satori was there The thing that was really interesting is we watched a couple SNUs where she was telling important stories But earlier there is a SNU where she s discussing an erectile dysfunction and in which she uses the word dick over and over again It was definitely one of those pieces where I cautioned the students to be conscientious that they are representing her in a certain way and let s see how she responds to this That video came up pretty early on and there are some really traumatic and profound stories that she tells in addition to her really funny stories We went through the entire piece And when we talked with Satori afterwards and asked her if she felt she was represented in an authentic and responsible way she was very warm and enthusiastic but she did say if there was one change she would make it would be to take that video out What that got me thinking about was that the order in which the user is moving through the story really shapes your impression of a person So if we

    sequence structure and narrative We read Lev Manovich s Generation Flash 2002 and I talked about his conception of database and narrative as the primary cultural forms in contemporary media culture and the new frontiers genres and audiences open to them with the proliferation of networked digital media All class readings are still online From The Making of a King by Nicole Miyahara After this I wanted to use Korsakow with my ethnographic film students at USC The next year 2011 2012 I had students make K Films in the spring semester As a group they were not particularly interested in non linear media but they did make some interesting discoveries It went well enough that I did the assignment again last month with the 2012 2013 MVA cohort a remarkable group The MVA program at USC is cinema centric The thesis requirement is a 20 to 30 minute video and our students tend to see themselves as ethnographic filmmakers I introduce the K film assignment late in the second semester of the yearlong production seminar At this point students have already spent time analyzing narrative structures and storylines and developing treatments for their projects They ve all shot interviews and other footage for their thesis projects logged footage transcribed interviews and learned paper edit techniques such as making index cards to represent selected clips and playing with sequence I introduce Korsakow and the genre of the database documentary showing them Almost Architecture and Planet Galata A bridge in Istanbul I point out that their stack of index cards representing interview clips and other sequences they ve selected for potential inclusion in their film is a database of material through which there are many possible paths The K film assignment is an opportunity to get a fresh perspective on their material explore some possible paths and discover new relations among clips and new ways to think of them as SNUs Even if they have no interest in making this type of new media I argue that the K film is an exercise that gives them an opportunity to play to take a break from the heavy and serious burden that all thesis projects become after 9 months working on them The assignment which they had 2 3 weeks to complete was K Film 7 12 clips 2 3 minutes each Korsakow FAQ Your task is to make a K film for with your MVA thesis footage The goal is to use an application called Korsakow as a tool for identifying themes and story elements in your thesis footage playing with their arrangement and experimenting with new media forms and formats Using your footage logs identify themes and bin clips from your footage to create a database documentary or K film Korsakow is installed in the IML labs and is a free download Gabe will instruct you in its use in IML 500 and Jenny will also work with you on the assignment in ANTH 577 I was very pleased with

  • Master vs. Medium | Korsakow
    working together with Matt Soar and our programmer Dave Reisch who has rewritten the code of Korsakow from scratch and built the foundation from where we can further develop the application For my own work I almost exclusively use Korsakow and depending on the way you count it I have made between 7 and 45 Korsakow films Last year for the first time in my life I also made a linear film ie a film that is the very same every time you look at it This film is called Planet Galata a portrait of a bridge in Istanbul and the people living on and around it Planet Galata was made for French German broadcaster ARTE and is a linear film and a Korsakow film So there are two versions It was an amazing experience to make a linear film alongside a Korsakow film In a nutshell The linear version of Planet Galata created some kind of moral or message I tried not to but the film the format of linear film made me do it It is the format of linear film that demands a moral or a message The author can fight it and maybe some great masters of filmmaking sometimes succeed but the linear film monster demands a moral I believe there are two roles the author can have The master of the story The author predefines and pre thinks the experience of the viewer In a linear film the author cannot avoid being the master of the story because in the end a linear film has one and only one concrete order and the author has to take full responsibility for it That said also non linear multi path and flexible structured projects are usually made by authors who still take the role of masters of the story The experience of the viewer the order of things has been pre thought by the master The order is certainly more flexible than in a linear film and these multi path films do not always look the same every time you look at them but nothing happens that the author did not pre think The medium of the story Korsakow is a tool that allows the author to be the medium of the story Here the author prepares the material the bits and pieces of the story he can also be present as a voice he can state his view or his opinion just like in any linear film The difference is that the author creates the rules of the film but he does not pre think the film And that allows him to tell stories that are usually very very difficult to tell in film stories that are inspirational but that don t have a message or moral Stories without an opinion This text was originally written for a talk given at Visible Evidence in New York in August 2011 About Florian Inventor of Korsakow co director of development filmmaker View all posts by Florian Archiving R69

  • Korsakow maps out feeling | Korsakow
    hurry I have to say Planet Galata as it is now has a very strict and relatively simple structure Basically because I used a lot more brain or maybe better explainable thoughts than in previous projects The structure of the online version of Planet Galata was done in a hurry We were running late and our focus was clearly the linear film at that time The structure was done in more or less a day Then Lalon showed me an other map This is when I always clicked the upper left button The result of the map did not surprise me and I laughed A trip to Planet Galata upper left button clicked Then he showed me a third map and said that this is basically a combination of both previous maps A trip to Planet Galata combined map Interesting that there is such a clear centre I said pointing to a dot in the middle of the map marked E1 Lalon looked into a list This clip is called ART SCHOOL he said That hit me I shivered What he could not know but what I knew ART SCHOOL was a very special story I had massive discussions over this SNU when I discussed work versions of Planet Galata with the commissioning editors I had a very very strong feeling about this clip and it was the only SNU my commissioning editors would not allow me to put in In fact the ART SCHOOL clip that in the end made it into Planet Galata was the second version with a different text This clip was the compromise we agreed on in the end or maybe my commissioning editors had just given up I never really understood why this SNU was so controversial Also I could never really express in words why it was so important to me I have a very strong feeling about this story that was my argument Lalon s map now showed this SNU right in the very center of Planet Galata I had not planned this But it made so much sense to me It felt it feels like Korsakow had read my thoughts Lalon Sander explaining his trips SNU Smallest Narrative Unit the equivalent of a scene in a linear film is a SNU in a Korsakow film Because I had to explain what I was doing to my commissioning editors for this project There is a linear film as well that was broadcast on ARTE television The reason for that in itself is very interesting and it would be worth reflecting on in an article on its own In short there is a market for linear films the linear film was sold already and there was hope to sell it to other broadcasters as well so the project should be polished and be finished in time of the Korsakow version of Planet Galata No version of the ART SCHOOL story became part of the linear film This is the French version of the
