COLLAPSUS

Interactive narrative, 2010

Director Tommy Pallotta:  “We crafted a multitasking and multi-linear experience and we blended genres like animation, documentary, fiction and interactivity all together in one story. This hybrid approach allows us to look at a serious documentary subject, but also to shift from the usual talking head approach to something that better reflects our time.”
The goal is to attract a different (and younger) audience than traditional documentary viewers.
