Today, John Coster and I were very fourtunate to spend the day with Dr Pat Kotchapakdee from Khon Kaen University in Thailand. John and Pat were able to sit down and discuss how Pat approaches his documentary work, and what he thinks is the use of telling stories through photography, film and social media platforms.
Tonight John Coster, Dave Nedham and I got together at the Doc Media Center and chatted about virtual and digital mapping, and if it is a new form of documentary, one that you can track people in real time?
Each Wednesday during November I’ll be recording a podcast with John Coster and guests as part of the Documentary Media Month events. If anyone is interested in taking part, or helping out with the podcast, or just hanging out and listening to the discussion, then we’ll be at the Documentary Media Centre, on the 1st Floor of 10 Bishop Street, Leicester LE1 6AF. It’s easy to find, opposite the fountain in the Town Hall Square.
