Multi media technology has impacted the way stories are produced and narrated in video works. As an exemplar of this trend, the National Film Board has launched 10 multi media web documentaries which are interactive, and employ photo-based narratives. The interconnectivity of the web has facilitated opportunities for film makers and audience members. Creative autonomy, artist collaborations, and networking are all trends emerging from internet based technology.
