Doc Edge has added Australians Claire Evans and Jordan Bryon to the mentor team for this year’s Doc Lab. Previously announced international mentors are Lina Srivastava, Marc Boothe and Ele Jansen.
Applications for the Lab close today (Friday 29) at 5pm, with the ability for individuals as well as teams to participate.
Claire Evans has worked on long-form television, film, commercial production, and specialized in post-production and computer generated imagery. She works across fiction, documentary, games and the web and has lectured at AFTRS.
In particular she brings experience of integrating and funding transmedia and cross-media work into film projects.
Jordan Bryon is an award-winning documentary short film-maker. He’s specialised in working with disenfranchised communities at home and overseas.
She established the not-for-profit community arts organization Wired Awake, and Polynate, a Sydney-based group of social innovators and creatives who work together, and share ideas and skills across projects.
Creative producer Marc Boothe has mentored at DocLab and presented at the Doc Edge Forum previously. He’s the founder of the UK-based B3 Media, an award winning digital media arts network. Germany’s Ele Jansen is also a creative producer, focusing on participatory storytelling and experiential learning. The USA’s Lina Srivastava coined the term ‘transmedia activism’ and works as a strategist to combine activism, technology, culture, art, and storytelling for social transformation.
Doc Lab runs 13 – 15 July at AUT.
