Last week I had the fortune of attending a small conference hidden away on Staten Island called ‘The Future of Storytelling‘. It was organized by Charlie Melcher and brought together a few hundred people to talk about the art, tech, and science of how and why of we tell stories.
As part of the conference prep, several outstanding short films were commissioned to accompany each of the talks, and this is one of them. Produced by Already Alive, it documents the work of Local Projects led by Jake Barton in creating the software powering the 9/11 Memorial, and along the way, tells the story of how the very act of sharing creates a bond between us all.
