From Research To Edit: new ways of collaboration within documentary production

In a partnership of producers of factual content at VRT, public broadcaster, and Limecraft, the company behind the online production platform Flow we re-imagined the documentary workflow in order to enable collaboration. Simultaneously we tackled issues endemic to documentary, factual and news production: facilitating, timing, transcribing and annotating interviews, collecting, reviewing and structuring research from a variety of sources and building a narrative without using a standard formatted script.

We developed a researcher application with following integrated tools: a docu board, a transcription tool and a storybuilding tool. The docuboard allows for mind mapping website content, audiovisual material and text. The transcription tool partly automates transcription using speaker’s recognition and keyword spotting. The storybuilding tool offers the user blocks to build a narrative from content collected in the docuboard and the transcription tool.

As the researcher application is integrated with Flow, all data are semantically discerned and universally represented in its underlying data model. As such data can be rendered in any required production document and turned into metadata. Stored in one single online repository, worldwide collaboration between different production members becomes possible.
