Ryan Jones & Mark Catalano Present DADAAB STORIES; bonus: BACKSPAC.ES & DJEHOUTI







StoryCode welcomes documentary collaborators and pioneers in the interactive documentary arena - Ryan Jones (producer/director) and Mark Catalano (developer). Called a "beautiful multimedia newspaper" by Fast Company and an "evolving online documentary" by the creators, Dadaab stands out in the sea of new interactive docs. Join us as the creators present the inside scoop on their process.

DADAAB STORIES is an interactive documentary and a place for those stories to live, and be shared with the world. This ongoing project includes video, poetry, art, photographs, blog posts. One of the most interesting aspects of this project is that the creators enabled the subjects to create various elements of the project themselves. This excellent example of community journalism was a 2011 recipient of a Tribeca New Media Fund grant.

    It was an incredibly inspiring project with a very impressive technology piece to it. It's exactly what I wished I could see more of in terms of engaging storytelling.
