About Popckorn Project
POPCKORN’S MISSION IS TO COMMUNICATE STORIES THROUGH SNACKABLE CONTENT.
In 2010 Javier Siriani created POPCKORN, a blog dedicated to mobile photography, with the aim of spreading a new form of expression.
Visual Narratives, exploring the world through the lens of mobile phones. A platform that brings together the interest in communicating and the impact of new technologies, from the cultural perspective.
Our role: to expand and strengthen the power of real-time storytelling, encourage digital artists, provide a space for meeting, discussion, exchange, learning and sharing knowledge on this new photography paradigm. Capturing, editing and sharing moments as they happen. First there was analog photography, then digital, and now mobile and social.
Together with FWTV (the first web TV channel in Latin America), we created POPCKORN VOD, a show featuring mobile photography pioneers from around the globe: Sion Fullana (US), Philippe González (Spain), Markus Spiering (Germany), Cadu Lemos (Brazil) and Inés Pujana (Argentina), among others.
The partnership with FWTV expanded and POPCKORN produced four web shows: Ritual Tattoo, Bici On, Producir Cambio and Huella Animal. All videos were made with smartphones.
POPCKORN delivered workshops and specialization courses at the Audiovisual District of the Buenos Aires City, Perfil Editorial, Ciudad Oculta, FWTV, Turner Broadcasting System Latin America, Adidas Argentina, Universidad Católica Argentina and Universidad Austral.
In October 2015, we conducted a Classmate (workshop) in the YouTube Creator Camp in Buenos Aires for Latin America’s leading content creators.
Since 2013, we are developing the first mobile photography festival in the region called Buenos Aires Mobile Festival.
