Documentary Storytelling – Research

One of the first things I found on the animated documentary research fronts was actually a book called Animated documentary and this book contained the following quote that is of interest to what we are wanting to know.


Honess Roe, A. (2013). Animated documentary. Houndmills, Basingstoke, Hampshire: Palgrave Macmillan. –

 “Animated Documentary, the first book to be published on this fascinating topic, considers how animation is used as a representational strategy in nonfiction film and television and explores the ways animation expands the range and depth of what documentary can show us about the world.”

Here is a sample of the book

I then found this short video created by Drew Christie called Psychedelic Blues which is not necessarily an animated documentary but it is an animated interview which captures a way of doing this that we are not that familiar with and it is interesting to see how others have gone about capturing an interview in a captivating way.

What is Animation? This is another animated interview that is on an interesting topic what are the odds of that.

Here is another approach to animated documentary which is particularly abstract this is of interest to me because we are intended on approaching our interview and experience in an abstract way so it is great to keep diving into how others are approaching the animated documentary.

I came across this blog which documents all different ways that people have tested and tried to tackle the art of the animated documentary and more information can be found at – 10/02/16
