Réaliser un magazine géographique sur les îles du Ponant : médiations entre recherche, territoires et télévision

Abstract : Making movies as a geographer is commonplace, even if there is still a need for a theorological framework and stronger legitimacy.The specifity of the experience here analysed is based upon its context: this PhD thesis in geography presents a professionnal experience in a local TV conducted in the context of a "CIFRE" agreement (between my research lab, a local TV, and myself as a PhD candicate), agreement itself embeded in a research project dedicated to the Ponant Island, a group of 13 islands off the French Atlantic coast. The mission in the local TV consisted in making a series of 19 TV magazines (with a duration of 26 minutes each), dealing with social, economical and territorial dynamics in the Ponant islands.The movies are parts of the PhD work and present the outcomes of the research project on the development of the islands. The text exposes a reflective analysis on this experience of filmmaking using the concept of mediation. This concept enables an examination of the diversity of interactions between films, research process and insular territories. This work contributes to a definition of the possibilities provided by audivisual scientific mediation. In the same time, it proposes a characterization of visual methodologies which allow mediation through filmmaking in research-action.
