DocLab Academy is an international program for talent in the field of documentary storytelling and interactive media. In November 2016 I was lucky to be one of the international story producers selected for IDFA DocLab Academy . My work has ranged from documentary research to radio making. I’ve always been interested in innovating by combining new media with good old stories, shaping narratives and trying new forms. In the last years I was investigating the possibilities of storytelling in the digital age and creating engagement. A starting point was The Bigger Picture (a project I initiated for The Centre for Innovation/Leiden University in collaboration with the World Press Photo Foundation and LUST)
Being part of DocLab academy was a great opportunity to get inspired by the projects of others and to experiment with new techniques.
