Film Mentors: Digital Media - Elaine McMillon
Elaine McMillion is an award-winning, documentary storyteller based in Boston, Massachusetts. Her work explores how digital platforms and participatory media can empower local communities. McMillion strives to bring the voices of people and places that are often underrepresented or misrepresented by the mass media to the forefront. She is currently the project director of “Hollow,” an interactive documentary that explores the issues and future of rural America through the eyes of Southern West Virginians. With support by the Tribeca Film Institute’s New Media Fund, “Hollow” will launch in May 2013 and combine documentary vignettes with photos, community-shot footage, soundscapes, animations and data visualizations in an immersive, HTML5 experience.
