Dr. John Francis Hetherington

After 35 years film and television industry experience the author, John Hetherington is currently lecturing in media production (Television Production and Interactive TV) and researching into the take-up and adoption of digital technologies for his Doctor of Visual Arts (Griffith) research higher degree. He is recording the progress of a defined group (200 households) of residents in rural South East Queensland, who have been involved in a community self-help scheme for the purchase and installation of direct-to-home satellite television equipment. The pre and post satellite experiences of participating community members have been recorded on-camera and will be incorporated into a nonlinear web based production form - a CyberDocumentary. Combining text, stills, video, graphics, music and documents with links the Cyberdoc, will provide an accessible community wide resource that not only documents the research project but also creatively experiments with an emerging new form - the CyberDocumentary.
