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.

3 modules have been completed, on Intercultural Understanding, Disabilities, and LGBTQ+ History in North America [link coming soon].

1 module is currently in progress, on Indigenous Communities.

 

The LGBTQ+ History in North America Module spans: Foucault; 60s Riots & Resistance (Compton’s Cafeteria, Stonewall); the AIDS Crisis; Military Bans (incl. Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell); Marriage Equality.

I wrote, edited, filmed, voiced (& face-d) and produced approx. 73 min of talking head and animated content over 32 different videos, wrote 15 text nodes, and cultivated a selection of 40 additional external videos and links, under the supervision of Dr. Hélène Frouard-Dourent and Dr. Janice Stewart.

Here are a few samples of my work on this module:

The module is currently still being built on the Tapestry Tool and should be available as of January 2020.

I wrote, storyboarded, animated and voiced the videos for the Disabilities module, supervised by Dr. Rachelle Hole and Dr. Erin Michalak. This module totals approx. 30 min of 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:

The Intercultural Understanding module was written and supervised by Dr. Simon Lolliot; I storyboarded and animated several of these videos, some were animated by Katrina Ross-Ghali under my direction; I 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:
