Common People making Films. Relationships between Amateur Audiovisual in the Internet and Documentary
Consolidating social networks and its visual expressions implied a new path for modern audiovisual in just a few years. Amateur creation and the wide spread of images in these media run freely as compared to those who have been controlling such images before. Furthermore, the countless amount of reality amateur footage questions several documentary classical roots and – at the same time – generates new artistic uses.
Miquel Martí Freixas works as film event programmer, teacher and critic, co-creator and editor of Blogs&Docs online magazine, with Elena Oroz, and in several publications. He is currently researching amateur audiovisual in social networks, and co-directed the film Sedated Army Crazy Mirror (2014), with Joan Tisminetzky.
