Episodic nonfiction has risen greatly in popularity over the last five years. Is it a simple trend or is the format here to stay?Top image via Ken BurnsLong-form episodic documentary content is not a new concept. Ken Burns has been creating this content for years and you can easily find examples of it most anywhere. However, what has changed is the way in which episodic nonfiction film is consumed. Another noteworthy change: The platforms it’s consumed on. These new-age episodic nonfiction films are now being binge-watched on Netflix and becoming items of pop culture. Creation of this long-form episodic nonfiction content is becoming widespread and the results are being consumed more aggressively and frequently. As filmmakers, this is a method of filmmaking that we need to explore more as a viable method of storytelling.Image via PBSWithin these last couple of years, we’ve seen Netflix jump on the bandwagon of episodic nonfiction with Last Chance U, Making a Murderer, Chef’s Table, and Cooked. The company has now become a leader in providing this content and has also helped facilitate its higher demand. So with the successes of Netflix and these films, does it mean that episodic content will be the future of documentary filmmaking?Who’s Noticing this Trend?Image via NetflixThis style of nonfiction content has really been gaining steam over the last couple of years. It’s been noticed to the point that independent filmmakers have now begun to receive support in this creative process. The Sundance Institute noticed this rise in episodic content and its potential for content and its creators. To support these content creators, the Institute launched the Episodic Storytelling Lab. At these labs, they help content creators develop their concepts and give year-round creative support. This is what Sundance said about the episodic format: Over the past five years, we have witnessed explosive growth of opportunities for writers developing episodic content for cable and online platforms. Audiences and critics have embraced the bold vision and complex characters that thrive in cable drama and comedy. And the internet has become a place for artists to experiment with new forms of content creation and for audiences to explore new modes of content consumption.What Are Documentary Filmmakers Saying About the Format?Image via NetflixOne of the success stories of this form of content is Last Chance U. The director, Greg Whiteley, has spoken very highly about the episodic format of documentary filmmaking. In an interview with Indiewire, the director was asked his thoughts on the episodic format and if it was something he would continually pursue. Occasionally, there will be a subject where, “That feels like 90 minutes to me,” or, “That feels like 60 minutes to me.” But, to have this as an option, and historically the high watermark for filmmaking was a feature length film, I think that’s going to change. I think the high watermark for storytelling in a cinematic way will be in this long-form way.Variety recently came out with their Oscar shortlist for documentary films. ESPN’s five-part documentary O.J.: Made in America makes the list as a potential winner.Episodic nonfiction film may be the wave of the future. As content creators, it’s a platform that we may see ourselves utilizing more in the future of our work.Do you see yourself pursuing episodic non-fiction content? Why or why not? What do you think some of the challenges may be? Let us know in the the comments below.
AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 Cunningham’s interception looked eerily similar. It came on the third play after halftime and after a 31-yard return, gave the Griffins the ball at the 2. Los Al junior running back Chris Soto punched it in on second down for a 2-yard TD. Soto starred for the Griffins’ offense with 103 yards on 26 carries, but Mason and the Griffins’ defense truly keyed the win. “The quarterback looked where he would throw,” Mason said. “So you could see that, and that helped. But our coaches did a really good job preparing us this week. They always had us in the right spots.” Mason, in particular, seemed always to be in the right spot. Another interception was in his hands in the first quarter, but he dropped it. In the third quarter, he had a 23-yard interception return for a TD brought back because of defensive holding. Finally, with 3:05 left, he came up with another huge play, recovering a fumble at the Locke 21. After that, Locke didn’t get the ball back. Los Alamitos’ Everett Mason had an interception for a touchdown, and another pick by Logan Cunningham keyed the Griffins’ 14-6 nonleague victory over Locke at Veterans Stadium. Mason’s 20-yard TD interception came less than three minutes into the game and set the tone for Los Al’s dominant defense. “I’m pleased because we got the win,” Mason said. “We played hard, and we got to tighten up, though. We let their quarterback scramble around too much.” Locke’s quick quarterback Torry Harkness had a lot to do with that. He finished with 83 yards on 12 carries, and he threw for 80 yards. Locke (2-1) repeatedly had lengthy drives that came up short. On the one that scored, Harkness threw to David McBride for a 7-yard TD with 2:04 left in the first half that brought Locke to within 7-6. Soto frequently came up with key first-down runs for the Griffins (3-0). He accounted for nine of Los Al’s first downs and helped put the game away by getting a first down on fourth-and-2 with 1:33 to play. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
