Welcome to Pine Point!

0

Credited to Paul Shoebridge, Michael Simons and the National Film Board of Canada this is one of the most beautiful and strong pieces of interactive story telling I have seen and one of my favourite works submitted to Memefest.

In the authors words: "Imagine your hometown never changed. That no one ever grew old or moved on. Part book, part film, part family photo album, Welcome to Pine Point unearths a place frozen in time and discovers what happens when an entire community is erased from the map."

I think this communication approach has great future and is really very important. However this level of sophistication is rare.

Here is a Openblog post from Frederic Dubois, who tells us more about the interactive documentary scene:

As you will see- visit the original page with the submited work and read author's commentes here:

- there is an agreement on what is the most important aspect of this medium: The Story comes First!

Merry Christmas to all!
