Digital Media Documentary Extension
Challenge: Subject Chaser Films, along with broadcaster TVO, wanted a companion website to an important Sesquicentennial project exploring the history of Canada through family photography. The site needed to be in HTML5, viewable on all platforms, and highlight both images from the documentary and various archives across the country. Because of the small budget, we sought designers and developers who could work within narrow parameters and a fairly tight deadline.
Solution: Sticky Brain Studios prepared concepts and submitted successfully to both the Canada Media Fund, and Bell Fund. Working with a developer familiar with the latest in JSON programming, we created a cost-effective, beautiful site. As well, we engaged content producer Glace Lawrence, who researched family stories and curated content for the site. We also worked with visual researcher Catherine Annau, who sourced hundreds of remarkable images for the gallery.
Result: The site is visually stunning, while being easy to maintain and extremely bandwidth-friendly. Partners on the project, as well as the larger Family Camera Network, are pleased with the outcome.
