Alexandre is founder of Studio Upian. He showed us two of his firm’s recent projects. The first, ‘Prison Valley’, isn’t ready yet but you should bookmark it and check on it later in the year.
His older project, ‘Gaza Sderot’, is still up and running and worth your time, especially if you’re interested in documentary work. It’s an online documentary made up of short stories of six characters from Gaza and six from Sderot. You can choose which characters you want to follow in a non-liner, interactive manner through these short videos and related blogs and forums. Basically the structure of the documentary is created by the viewer.
Every day, two new videos report on the daily life of people living in Gaza (Palestine) and Sderot (Israel): gaza-sderot.arte.tv
Prison Valley is a webdocumentary by David Dufresne and Philippe Brault on the prisonindustry in the crisis-striken United States: prisonvalley.arte.tv
