Today we launched our first interactive video – Europeana Remix. Based on a short film that was produced as a result of a crowdsourcing project “The First World War in everyday documents“, the video now turns into a new enriching experience.
Empowered with latest video technology and resources from Europeana and the web, the interactive video lets you browse through related content, share the video with your friends and interact with other users through comments that you can post at any moment of the film.
Luisa Arndt, a young woman around whom the storyline of the film evolves, shared some insights about her experience with the making of the video:
“I was excited to take part in the project, to meet new people and to visit the different locations of the shoots, such as Oxford, Birmingham and St. Omer.”
“Right from the beginning we were a great team. We complemented each other and had a lot of fun. This made it possible to make that long trip and shoot a good video within such a small time frame.”
Luisa also added that she liked the idea of “The First World War in everyday documents” and was happy to support it with her participation in the video.
“I think it’s very useful to make historical documents accessible to people. This way, young people can find out more about the past and maybe even about their ancestors”, she said.
