SONS OF GALLIPOLI, CHANGE GOUT and NUCLEAR DISSENT are among Jam3’s most awarded interactive documentaries – each with a page on this site discussing the roles I played in them. During my four years at the company I also worked as a creative and/or producer for clients Google, Microsoft, Mozilla, Success Academy, Disney, Snoop Dogg’s Merry Jane, the CBC, the NFB and Visa.
I also wrote and directed the majority of Jam3’s case studies, making often implicit, iterative strategy explicit after the fact – in under two minutes – helping bring in lots of business, press and awards, telling the Jam3 story in the process. I used the same storytelling approach for Google ZOO, Disney, CBC and Jam3 prototype videos, most of which I wrote myself. To do so, I dialogued with in-house developers, visual and UX designers and creative technologists to map out clear and concise user journeys, always keeping the “why” and “for and by whom” of a project front and center.
This is all part of the act of “co-creation” that brings digital experiences to life in the real world – something I now practice as a strategist and teach at Seneca’s documentary filmmaker-led DNM program, where we study Jam3 i-docs from BEAR 71 to NUCLEAR DISSENT, along with the R&D work at MIT’s Open Documentary Lab and Co-Creation Studio.
