I recently wrote a piece on their unique and interactive videos on the Catalyst Blog called Video Saved the Radio Stars. I hope you enjoy the read.
Holy shit. Arcade Fire has done it again. And I’m not referring to their new single, Reflektor. I’m talking about their new video (I call it their new digital experience because that’s what it is).
Today their new single and video(s) were released at 9pm local time. The traditional video is dark and gets some getting used to. However, when I found out that Arcade Fire also released an interactive experience I was hooked.
Another Chrome experiment, the experience is actually called Just A Reflektor and is a short film that follows the world of a woman in Haiti as she experiences both her world and ours.
Here are a couple of screen shots:
This one is of me within the video.
The one above is of the heroine.

Ok Toronto. I think we’ve all calmed down from last night’s rainfall. Apparently the city received more precipitation last night that we received when Hurricane Hazel hit decades ago.
I managed to leave the city when it started raining. So when I arrived home I was shocked to hear about all the flooding and friends who were stranded.
Many of you also took and saw all the photos that were making their way on to social media. It was an amazing thing to witness. Not so amazing, I understand, for those whose commutes were much longer and stressful than usual.
In the spirit of being thankful for all that we have going for ourselves (we’re still the best city in the world with the best people!) I thought I would share a video that I came across this past weekend.
It was meant to be a part of a post on leadership. And last night we did receive some leadership from ordinary citizens, companies and even a few of our political leaders.
I hope you enjoy.
