Videoblogs as 'Collective Documentary'
This paper looks into how 'temporal media' (video and sound) influence on the concept of blogging and a genre which I call 'collective documentary'. I am going to discuss how videoblogs might be designed in order to take advantage of the internets capabilities when it comes to combining individual and collective effort in 'online filmmaking'. I argue that it is essential that a videoblog-system is based on posts containing individual video-shots rather than pre-edited sequences. This will make it possible to reuse the content within a server-based framework demanding almost no technical skills from the end-user. Most of the work done with videoblogs is based on pre-edited content or individual video-clips without any connection to other clips. I suggest to use a different approach where a large number of individual posts (video clips) are used as the raw material for a "video-aggregator" which makes it possible to store sequences as portable XML-documents. The suggested technological framework will make it possible to share the raw material and edited sequences between a huge number of users within as server-based solution. The paper will be presented with a short demonstration of a protype which will show how the described system is intended to work.
