Draama is a project that took root video exchanges via internet.
Videos are partially (if not completely) composed with found footage (from cinema or simply from 'youtube').
Draama is an attempt of 'exchange' between the author and its audience, and maybe a fiction from their relationship. However, Draamas, formed almost every time as messages, always have one or several implicit recipients whether they are indirectly or not spectators.
Without to forget this 'autobiographical' blur is voluntarily accentuated by the emergent status of youtube video, the intimacy intrusion through the public sphere. Therefore the dramatization (in the theatrical sens, dramatic) of everyday life.
Draama is a project that has to do with what we call dramatic or what is lived as dramatic in the bosom of culture and human relationships.
Draama "puts on stage" drama, or maybe stages the staged drama.
The 'definition' and characteristics of Draama tend to variate, considering that Draama is a franchise, an "open source" project where the number of participants tend to increase. Draama offers the possibility for others to produce other messages, other Draamas.
