Hollow the Film, an Interactive Appalachia Project
- ‘Hollow’ debuts on W.Va. Day, screenings Saturday, via the Seattle PI
- Hollow the Film, via the project’s webste
Hollow is a hybrid community participatory project and interactive documentary where content is created “for the community, by the community.” The project combines personal documentary video portraits, user-generated content, photography, soundscapes, interactive data and grassroots mapping on an HTML5 website designed to discuss the many stereotypes associated with the area, population loss and potential for the future.
Members of the community will take part in the filmmaking process by creating 20 of the 50 short documentaries in efforts to build engagement and social trust and empower the community to work together for a better future.
