- Digital Media
At Convivial we are experienced in all stages of documentary film development encompassing pre | pro | post production. We understand the breath and scope of involvement necessary to dig deep into documentary content, discovering core stories and building a narrative structure while extending story threads.
Working with digital media for over 20 years, Convivial has developed and implemented workflow protocols and best practices using digital media throughout the evolution of file formats, connective devices and media types. As digital media producers, we create products and experiences using digitally-acquired and digitally-born assets across many media platforms including print, photography, video and the web. We strive to educate and serve our clients and communities about best practices and methods for using digital media.
Our experience as digital media producers has also led us to formally teach youth and adults of all ages. Moving to New Mexico a decade ago, we began teaching workshops in digital media literacy, movie making and digital photography to intergenerational groups. Our teaching efforts continue today with digital photography workshops, digital filmmaking workshops and social media workshops for communities and artists.
Documentaries ~"Layering of Story Experience"
Docs are our passion. Our narrative path has taken us to a place of "connecting with" and the "layering of story experience" over our linear documentaries. We are thrilled with the possibilities of "connecting with” the people and places in our stories via social media venues and online communities around our films. Our process of "layering of story experience" includes augmented reality perspectives overlayed onto story points. In this way, our enhanced narrative forms create traditional storytelling pieces as well as interactive experiences. Our core interested is in the intersection of these experiences.
