3D Documentary Explorer - what do you think?
The 3D Documentary Explorer is an experiment in interactive storytelling - a mix of video clips from the series, and web pages relevant to each clip, packaged into one experience.
We've cut the first two 60 minute episodes of The Virtual Revolution into a series of short chapters, so that the whole video experience is around 20 minutes for each episode. If you want, you can sit back and watch those straight through. But if the story we're telling sparks your curiosity and makes you want to sit forward and find out more, you can pause the video and use the web sites that we've identified around each chapter as a starting point for your own journey around the web. (Watch the video above for a 'how to' guide)
The Explorer is based on a concept first prototyped inside the BBC two years ago, but it is still version 1.0. So please do give it a test drive. Any feedback on your experience, suggestions for improvements, or thoughts about this approach to storytelling would be very welcome.
