A Short History of the Highrise

A beautiful production, but I find the “interactive” nature of the film series disruptive. Maybe I’m too linear when it comes to video, but I have a hard time getting back into the storyline after I’m done exploring. And I feel compelled to explore the extras because of their ephemeral nature (prompts only appear during certain parts of the video).

It would work better as an interactive first and foremost with the videos as features. That way you won’t feel like you have to explore the extras mid-sequence before they disappear.
