dc.description.abstractThe online documentary, A Satellite Solution, is a case study investigation into how digital communication technologies (primarily satellite TV) have impacted the quality of life of a rural community comprising 50 households in southeast Queensland (Australia) between 1999 and 2006. The production depicts a community-mediated process by which these residents adopted and then responded to receiving free-to-air TV services for the first time. The author, instigated and facilitated the project in the community and as well, recorded and produced all the material contained in the documentary. The paper will highlight the production components of the research set against the context of this participatory activity. This online documentary is a web site containing research materials (policy documents, significant correspondence and reports) video interviews and location sequences, maps and technical information such as, how to install a satellite system, where to find free to air satellite services, what satellite broadband incentives are available etc. Importantly it also represents innovation in film and television and particularly, the researcher's selected art form, the documentary. This paper, takes a practice focus and will document the production of the web site and how this new form impacts on the production style of traditional linear productions and as well, what filmmakers working in this emerging non-linear form may need to plan for.
