The Shoebox

2006-09 Interactive online documentary design and creation prototype: The Shoebox.
After a 30 sec introductory video sequence, the user begins to navigate interactively with the interface. Moving between six panoramic scenes that represent a time period as well as a location, the user finds active hotspots within each scene. Once activated each hotspot plays a video clip which, when closed, drops into a timeline at the base of the screen. After three such non-linear user interactions the timeline becomes active and can be palyed as a linear movie, with a tradition beginning, middle and end. Linear movie duration 8:00 minutes.
