As transmedia has come and gone as a buzz word and various other words have come to take its place (will we agree on "Interactive storytelling"?), two things remain certain:  The National Film Board of Canada has devoted the most resources, time, and energy to ensuring this mode of storytelling evolves and excites, and the work of Katerina Cizek is absolutely unmissable. Today, her new interactive documentary "A Short History of the Highrise" has debuted on the website for the New York Times.  The new film sucks you in immediately.  "A Short History of the Highrise" works as an interactive and more focused companion piece to Gary Hustwit's "Urbanized," the "Helvetica" director's examination of urban design, but more directly, it's the masterpiece behind Cizek's larger "Highrise" project.   Read More "Filmmakers You Should Know" articles now. If you're unfamiliar with Cizek's work, you may want to take a break and dig in now. »
