NFB Interactive: Bear 71

Russ and I were meeting today to design the user experience for Hollow and we came across Bear 71. What we found interesting was the interactive topographical map with it’s rich audio and data visualizations. You can even turn your webcam on and become part of the map. Experience Bear 71 here.

A little about the project:

"Jeremy Mendes and Leanne Allison’s poignant interactive documentary about a bear in the Canadian Rockies illuminates the way humans engage with wildlife in the age of networks, satellites, and digital surveillance. Audiences from around the world can use their smartphones to become part of an interactive forest environment rich with bears, cougars, sheep, deer, and people as they follow an emotional story of a grizzly bear tagged and monitored by Banff National Park rangers."

Interactive Documentary: Le corps incarcéré

A fellow colleague sent me this French web documentary “Le corps incarcéré," which translates as "The Corps imprisoned." It appears that the interactivity lies within controlling the timeline of 15-minute documentary. The film is mainly made up of audio and photographs.

"In a story built on the testimony of four former detainees, incarcerated Corps accepts the different stages of a prison and its impact on the body of prisoners.

The story, broken down into five steps (search, the body of another illness, the recovery and release) is based on an audio tape containing excerpts from interviews.”

The web documentary was the winner of Franc 24 and RFI. Read more here
