For BLA BLA, an interactive tale that explores various facets of human communication, the viewer is integral to the work. Mouse clicks guide this story in six chapters, populated by endearing characters generated using a variety of methods, from traditional to high-tech. Made with the support of the NFB, this latest online production by director and creator Vincent Morisset (whose credits include the documentary MIROIR NOIR and the interactive music video for Neon Bible by Arcade Fire) stands apart in its emphasis on achieving an emotional response in the viewer. Through the very format of the work, Morriset also addresses the challenges of telling a story with the spectator as participant. BLA BLA is a one-of-a-kind experience that bears his hallmark: re-imagining “once upon a time” for the digital age.
Unfortunately, the technology used to make this interactive project available online is no longer supported. However, new solutions to preserve and update projects technically are continuously being explored within the interactive field. Whenever possible, we will bring this project back online.
