Pine Point knows how to tell a story

Pine Point started off as a book but quickly morphed into something that could only exist online: a scrapbook (of sorts) that uses films, old photos, and audio recordings to tell the true story of a small Canadian town that simply disappeared one day. (via VSL)

Created by The Goggles (Paul Shoebridge and Michael Simons) and produced by the National Film Board of Canada, this "interactive documentary," as they call it, is pitch perfect. Poignant, nostalgic, historical, entertaining and interactive in a completely intuitive way, could Pine Point be the future of the book? Watch it over lunch - it's best consumed when you've got 20+ minutes to spare.
