The Tapestry Tool

The Tapestry Tool” is a non-linear content platform being developed at UBC under a large TLEF project supervised by Dr. Steven J Barnes.

I’m head video producer for the project, currently supervising the creation of 4 modules for the tool. I’m also helping to guide the development of the tool.

2 modules have been completed, on Intercultural Understanding and Disabilities.

2 modules are currently in progress, on Gender & Sexuality and Indigenous Communities.

 

The Intercultural Understanding module was written and supervised by Dr. Simon Lolliot; I storyboarded and animated several of these videos, and directed/edited all of them. This module totaled approx. 20 mins of original animated content spread over 10 different videos.

Here’s a sample video from the module, on perspective-taking and empathy:

The Disabilities module was entirely written by me, supervised by Dr. Rachelle Hole and Dr. Erin Michalak; I also storyboarded, animated and voiced these videos. This module totaled approx. 30 min of original animated content spread over 18 different videos, with a cultivated selection of 11 additional embedded videos.

Here’s a sample video from the module, on social stigma:

I’ve written several scripts and started production on the Gender & Sexuality module under supervision from Dr. Hélène Frouard-Dourent and Dr. Janice Stewart. The module will focus on LGBTQ+ history in North America.
Our specific topics are: Foucault; Compton’s Cafeteria, Stonewall & Pride;  the AIDS Crisis; Don’t Ask/Don’t Tell & Military Policies; and Marriage Equality.

The Indigenous Communities module is currently in progress.
