Abstract

This paper will explore technological developments in current documentary production, assessing how these are individually and comparatively immersing the audience in the film and the story and creating spectacle. The paper will track how spectacle operates in the 21st century documentary, assessing two particular films as case studies to critique this concept and addressing whether the filmmakers are embracing the new technology, thereby creating new experiences for the audience and thus approaching the production of documentaries differently. The paper will also assess the audience’s desire and growing expectation for spectacle and how this could be causing shifts in the landscape, before examining the interaction of audience, technology and filmmaker.
