Full Project Description:
A software engine to automatically create a video life story from an individual’s social media content, Life Docs is a practical attempt to make sense of our vast stashes of personal data in a human, emotional and narrative way.
Using personal social media content, the project explores how to create a short film memoir of an individual – with the output feeling meaningful, personalised, beautiful and potentially provocative. The team want to see if this story can be created using an automated process.
The ambition is that the Life Docs service will be a commercial, stand-alone, direct-to-consumer product, but will also be used within the Afterlife Retreat (a large-scale residential theatre event The Other Way Works are planning for 2015/16).
