The Story

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talk


The Story is a one-day conference about stories and story-telling. The Story is curated by Matt Locke, former Head of Cross Platform Production at Channel 4 and Director of Storythings, a content studio who specialise in creating 'all kinds of stories for all kinds of audiences'.

A talk and screening exploring how mobile media can be used to enhance documentary access and storytelling. Victoria Mapplebeck discusses '160 Characters' ( her smartphone Film London short ) in the context of a genre of technological storytelling in which Directors seek to convert the vernacular of digital dialogues and interactive screens into cinematic narratives. '160 Characters' takes as its starting point the uses of mobile media as a medium for ‘expression and agency’ and as a ‘memory tool’ for creating and archiving life stories.
