Welcome to Pine Point / NFB, pinepoint.nfb.ca

Imagine your hometown never changed. That no one ever grew old or moved on. Part book, part film, part family photo album, Welcome to Pine Point unearths a place frozen in time and discovers what happens when an entire community is erased from the map.

Project details

Author(s):Paul Shoebridge and Michael Simons, the NFB




How does project benefit the client (if there is a client)?
No client.

How does project benefit the people you are speaking to with your communication?
An attempt to address how people think about what memory, home, and place are to them.

How does project benefit the wider society?
As above.

How did/does this project benefit author (authors/makers of the project)?
It taught us a lot about the process of making online stories, their strengths and limitations, how each type of media has its own power and abilities to tell these stories.

Tell us something about your view on communication. What is your / your organisation's / initiative's (visual) communication philosophy?
We believe that story must come first, no matter the medium.

What about the process of creating this work? Please describe it.
This project took us several years to complete, and we went through many different iterations with our producing partners, the National Film Board of Canada. We feel the final product is an interesting attempt at merging old and new forms of media.
