Looking for a relaxing way to kick back for a few hours? Get lost in the National Film Board of Canada's Interactive site!
My exploration has just began. Bla Bla by Vincent Morisset simply puts a smile on my face. The key to the interactivity is uninhibited clicking and sound on. Flub and Utter by Scott Nihil and Sabrina Saccoccio caught the attention of the linguist in me. It took me back to my first linguistic course and the study of Jabberwocky by Lewis Carroll, which Nihil references. My favorite may be Flawed by Andrea Dorfman, but it's too early to know for sure. I'm still exploring.
It turns out this is an ongoing area of interest that I keep stumbling upon. Here's a related post about one of the earliest 360 interactive documentaries, Out My Window. Also check out the NFB's films! The Girl Who Hated Books is a good place to get started for elementary teachers. Quallunaat! Why White People Are Funny reminds me of Narmica and a good lesson I need to reinvent.
Thanks to the fabulous learners in my Ed Tech class this term, and specifically Brian Levine for sharing the National Film Board of Canada's Interactive site.
Happy interactive exploring!
