“The Third Day”, renewing the serial space

Back to summary

The Third Day is a mini-series consisting of six episodes. A seventh episode, Autumn, is at the junction between the two parts. It was filmed live on 3 October 2020 during a continuous twelve-hour period in the form of a single sequence shot. The episode was broadcast via Facebook Live. The present contribution aims to interrogate the formal inventiveness of Autumn. How was this experiment in audiovisual hybridisation made possible in the context of contemporary television formats? How does it fit into the processes of participatory online reading? In what way does this episode renew questions about how to film the space of fiction?
