ARCHIVE DRIFT + PERIPHERAL DRIFT H4CK are traversal cinematic documents created during the Tribeca/GAFFTA H4ck held in San Francisco in March 2013.
To operate the hack, the participant uses the accelerometer of an iPad to control the direction of footage. The footage has been categorized according to the direction of the camera movement in shot.
Archive Drift uses this engine to move through archival footage, while allowing the user to interact with it in an immersive way.
An extension of the project, Peripheral Drift H4ck, is an interactive non-linear documentary, using newly shot footage/portraitures of participants to explore the intimacy and focus that happens during a hackathon.
Both PDH4 & AD are interactive projects that ask participants to use physical movements to explore footage, creating a non-linear filmic walkabout.
Created with Final Cut Pro and Open Frameworks/C++, controlled with an Ipad accelerometer and a Mac Mini.
