Bear 71 - NFB

Bear 71 is a multiuser, multiplatform, interactive story world. The story world started 2 years ago with millions of photos captured by trail cameras that Co-Creator Leanne Allison brought to us.

The project is about the intersection between animals, humans and technology and how we have become disconnected from nature and our natural instincts. It's a linear story told in the first person in the voice of an omniscient all knowing grizzly bear married with a nonlinear visual user experience and webcam serveillance set in the bow valley in the Canadian Rockies.


Creators – Jeremy Mendes and Leanne Allison
NFB Executive Producers – Loc Dao, Rob McLaughlin, and Bonnie Thompson.
