If, like me, you didn’t get the chance to attend the 2014 Power to the Pixel Cross Media Forum, you can now catch up with the presentations online!
Here are the top 3 to watch if your focus is on interactive work and once again it’s great to see makers lay projects bare; sharing inspiration, discussing their failures and providing details on the process that goes into making interactive work.
WE WERE IN FORT MCMURRAY LONG BEFORE LEONARDO DICAPRIO – Raphaëlle Huysmans (TOXA)
Raphaelle Huysmans (TOXA) worked alongside David Dufresne on the docu-game Fort McMoney. She talks about the 3 year process of creating the project, the things that went wrong as well as what went right and how media partnerships helped them to distribute the work.
THE GUARDIAN & NFB CANADA – SEVEN DEADLY DIGITAL SINS – Loc Dao (NFB Canada) & Francesca Panetta (The Guardian)
Loc Dao and Francesca Panetta discuss the collaborative project from the NFB and the Guardian ‘The 7 Digital Deadly Sins’, delving into how the partnership worked and how the project was produced.
NETWARS/OUT OF CTRL – Michael Grotenhoff, Filmtank
Netwars/Out of Control director Michael Grotenhoff presented the opportunities and challenges of making a cr0ss-media project. You can find out more about his ambitious interactive piece in an interview we did with him earlier the year.
You can see the rest of the videos from the PttP Forum here, as well as a selection from the past few years.
