I have been teaching interactive narrative and new media theory at the London College of Communication from 1999 till 2013. I am now Visiting Research Fellow at the University of the West of England and one of the conveners of the i-Docs symposium in Bristol. You can download my PhD on interactive documentaries here.
I come from a background in television production. I have worked ten years producing content for cultural television shows… but I rapidly got frustrated about the whole process of “ordering” stories, and “cutting down” people. I struggled with the selective tyranny of the editing process. When computers started to appear into the edit suites I understood that it was the beginning of a whole new way of conceiving the narrative experience… hence my switch to interactive television, and then teaching. I now plan to go slowly go back to the production world – but this time of interactive documentaries!
