View the prototypes from POV Hackathon 4 »

Over the past year, POV has brought together visionary filmmakers and inventive technologists to “re-imagine the documentary for web” in a single weekend. And now that the fourth edition of POV Hackathon has concluded — you can get a glimpse of the process in this social media recap — we’re excited to share the prototypes from the five teams that participated, and give you the opportunity not only to explore them, but also to learn more about how the team’s created the prototypes under an impossible deadline, including a technology list and source code.

In most cases, the team members did not know each other before their participation. Find out more about the POV Hackathon process and future calls for participants »
