One of my favourite projects of 2014, this interactive media piece gives viewers more insight into CBC’s dark and haunting series, ‘Strange Empire’.
The story focuses on a group of women in the late 1800s, struggling to live the Western lifestyle after most of their husbands go missing. One of three main characters, Rebecca Blithely has a strange, deep, inquisitive and innocent mind that is reflected in this highly creative interactive piece that helps viewers get deeper into her character.
We used audio, video, animation and sideways scroll to allow the users the opportunity for a deeper experience of the storyline. Each ‘Chapter’ highlights an object from the corresponding episode.
The images below represent just a handful of examples of the rich media experience. To try it yourself, head to ‘The Curiosities of Rebecca Blithely’.
