From a media release:

NFB and ARTE commission 12 one-minute works
Call for Submissions
Got an idea for an innovative short interactive project?

• The call for projects is open until August 19, 2014, at noon (Eastern Standard Time).

• Applicants can register online at interactivehaiku.com

Toronto –
The National Film Board of Canada (NFB) and ARTE are issuing an international call for submissions for short online interactive experiences, in a new collaboration called Interactive Haiku.

Memes, Vines and Buzzfeed are all formatted for the digital age, where users tend to consume things quickly.

Yet brief experiences aren’t synonymous with an absence of quality or depth: the short format of haiku poetry offers a perfect example. Interactive Haiku aims to bring the brevity and richness of the haiku to the online realm, through projects that explore the possibilities of the short interactive format.

To help guide applicants, organizers have offered these 10 rules:

1. The experience should be 60 seconds long.
2. It should inspire us to see the world we live in differently.
3. Only one interactive concept should be used.
4. It should employ a full browser design with common “NFB/ARTE” header.
5. No navigation menu should be used.
6. Project must include sound.
7. It should be understandable and accessible to an international audience.
8. Project creators must own or have released all rights.
9. Must be computer, tablet and mobile friendly (iOS, Android and Windows).
10. And because there’s always an exception to the rule: break one of the creative rules 1 through 7
and explain why.

Twelve proposals will be selected. Applicants can register online at interactivehaiku.com.
The call for projects is open until August 19, 2014, at noon (Eastern Standard Time). Winners will be announced this fall.


Proposals will be selected by an international jury consisting of Caspar Sonnen, founder and curator, IDFA DocLab; Héctor Ayuso, founder and programmer, OFFF Festival; David Carzon, bi-media editor-in-chief, Telerama; Ciel Hunter, creative director, the Creators Project; Jonathan Harris, artist and computer scientist; Marie-Pier Gauthier, head of production at the NFB’s Digital Studio; and Alexander Knetig, web commissioning editor at ARTE. William Uricchio, professor of Comparative Media Studies and Principal Investigator of the MIT Open Documentary Lab and the MIT Game Lab, will serve as jury president.

With tight musicians and intriguing lyrics, Happy Freuds delivers high energy guitar rock with stylistic flair on Echo Of Sounds, their debut release. Produced with a minimum of overdubs or fixes, the album consists of a mix of original material, rearrangements of works from others and selected, less known, classic rock.

A kinetic rhythm section is the bones of the music, offering interesting patterns that augment sometimes unexpected harmonic changes. It's brainy rock, in other words, meant for music lovers who can appreciate the quality. Teo's vocals are raspy and expressive, growly when necessary - perfect for the musical mode. Teo also covers lead guitar, adapt at ear worm leads, with a tone that can be clean or dirty as required

Their sound ranges from straight up hard rock in tracks like The Mountain to the pop-flavoured acoustic Background Noise and folky To …
