Loc Dao - NFB Interactive - at 2013 TFI Interactive | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it
Loc Dao gives us a look at some of the interactive projects they're currently working on.

 

excerpt:

"We want to match the platform and technology to the story and to the form that story needs to be told in"

 

Computer = truck

Tablet = car

Interactive Installation = UFO

mirmilla's insight:

At the NFB  the boundary between interactive documentary, readings, new formats etc. is increasingly blurring.

 

The fundamental role of the platform in the projects development strategy is currently the mobile and tablet. We look forward to seeing the interesting projects announced.

Le webdoc à l'ONF : Entretien avec Monique Simard

Le webdoc à l'ONF : Entretien avec Monique Simard | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it

"Le Blog documentaire avait déjà poussé la porte de l'ONF pour rencontrer l'un de ses producteurs, Hugues Sweeney. Cette fois-ci, nous vous faisons entrer dans le bureau de Monique Simard, directrice du programme français de l’institution canadienne.

Comment travailler pour l’ONF ? Quelle philosophie imprègne les programmes interactifs produits au Canada ? Quels budgets, quelles audiences pour les webdocs « made in Québec » ? Et quelles perspectives ? Monique Simard nous raconte tout, avec son enthousiasme légendaire…"

by Cedric Mal

[French only]

mirmilla's insight:


Since the NFB has been (and still is) one of the first institutions to believe in the potential of interactive work, it is very symbolic that today after having funded a large number of productions one of its producers still mentions issues such as:

- "How to reinvent the non-linear grammar?"

- "The goal is to create new versions for new experiences"

 

Useful and interesting interview to understand what philosophy guides the selection of NFB.
