COME/IN/DOC / Collaborative Meta Interactive Documentary / is a transmedia meta-documentary that reflects on the interactive documentary. It consists of 3 interconnected parts: a documentary series, a multimedia platform and exhibitions.

There has been more and more production in the area of​​ interactive nonfiction and the documentary is one of the main formats that have been developed considerably in recent years, but more theoretical and practical exploration is needed. This initiative is based on the hypothesis that the interactive documentary is a new audiovisual format with specific characteristics. This project aims to achieve a greater understanding of this new documentary format assuming that our period in history lends itself to a deeper reflection. Awards and festivals:

More than 10 hours of interviews regarding the key issues on interactive documentary such as definition, features, evolution, interactivity, collaboration, technological future, gamification, new models of production, author’s role and business model.

Each season is divided in 2-4 episodes and each episode has 2 or 4 parts. The premiere of each episode is launched first place through the Open Documentary Lab (MIT) website.

The third extension of the project includes exhibitions in different forms, which can be used in events along with computers or with touch screens to follow a path consisting of ten major questions and the responses of ten chosen experts in this specific area. This installation has been used partially in events and exhibitions such as InterDocsBarcelona 2013, part of the DocsBarcelona Festival in its 16th edition (2013), Visible Evidence XXII (Toronto, 2015) and CNA Luxemburg (2015).

  • COME/IN/DOC is a dream come true produced over a period of four years with a very low budget and a very small team of people; the result of traveling around the world looking for the experts in the field of interactive documentary and interactive media in general.

    But COME/IN/DOC is more than that because it also proves our hypothesis: the new dynamics make it possible to independently produce a low-budget project, based on having something to say and offer to the world (1% inspiration and 99% perspiration). 

    COME/IN/DOC is a collaborative project because many people selflessly worked on it in one way or another. But especially thanks to the experts in interactive documentary who made the project a collaborative work in the broadest sense. 

    COME/IN/DOC is a meta-documentary that attempts to explain a kind of documentary based on that actual genre. 

    COME/IN/DOC is interactive because its platforms and interfaces, social networks and training make it possible for people who are interested to participate, contribute and even generate content. 

    COME/IN/DOC is a documentary created through theoretical and applied research and has become a unique and valuable tool for training and teaching. 

    We are currently undergoing a complete change from the traditional mapping of the communication field. If we ask the same questions we will always get the same answers. We cannot solve a problem from the actual consciousness that originated that problem. We need a new creative and collective consciousness, as only creation allows us to be free. You can only learn what you love. I love what is happening around me and want to explain it using a powerful tool: the interactive documentary. I learned how to do this and through COME/IN/DOC I hope this knowledge will arrive to many people.

    As COME/IN/DOC is configured as a hybrid project, halfway between an interactive audiovisual and an educational tool, the project materials have been used for academic training in grades and master's degree subjects, workshops, seminars, courses for businesses aiming to produce, research laboratories, etc.
