Created by The Goggles (Paul Shoebridge and Michael Simons) and produced by the National Film Board of Canada, this “interactive documentary,” as they call it, is pitch perfect.
Pine Point started off as a book but quickly morphed into something that could only exist online: a scrapbook (of sorts) that uses films, old photos, and audio recordings to tell the true story of a small Canadian town that simply disappeared one day. (via VSL)
Poignant, nostalgic, historical, entertaining and interactive in a completely intuitive way, could Pine Point be the future of the book? Best consumed when you’ve got 20+ minutes to spare.
This piece is stunning. Like it brought tears to my eyes stunning.
