Interactive Storytelling and Bear 71

Over the last year or two, Interactive Documentaries and Films have been discovered as a new and exciting way of telling stories. With the levels of interaction varying between complete user control to a slideshow, interactive films are an interesting way of telling stories in a non-linear way.
The NFB’s website has many interactive films that I recommend you check out, but I suggest you start with this documentary that premiered at DOXA 2012 with a live performance and installation to add appeal to the festival crowd. I wrote a blog on the experience when I was participating in the Kris Anderson Youth Connexions forum which you can check out as well. FYI, the total Bear 71 experience is about 40 minutes.
