Welcome to Pine Point

This webdocumentary is made by Paul Shoebridge and Michael Simons, and it is produced by the National Film Board of Canada. The structure of the documentary is booklike with chapters and pages, and reflects the original intention by the authors of making a book. I think this is a good thing in this case. A booklike intentional order fits the story of the erased town of Pine Point conveyed with snaphots, amateur video, graphics and memorablia. This traditional structure enables the authors to control the pace and rythm of the story which in my opinion is important to the experience.

More on this when I find a comparable case which would benefit from a more traditional structure.

Use the documentary.
