Comments: “Tour de force. It’s thoughtful, immersive and deliberate with the navigation and all of the little touches. You’re building a wall as you go along. The Post pushes the medium forward in terms of trying to crack the nut on digital video storytelling with this piece. The maps are gorgeous and the control of just three colors is amazing. Not only does it stretch the medium of digital storytelling, but it also stretches the technical area. They seam together the video clips perfectly and provide a great user experience. You fall in and start going.”
