We wanted to tell the story of the automation of financial markets and build a story structure that went beyond the three basic levels of image/sound/music. The tablet is the most appropriate medium to merge top qualities of design with the dramatic strengths of documentary storytelling.

Money & Speed: Inside the Black Box is an interactive documentary developed for the iPad that tells the story of the 2008 flash-crash of the US financial markets. The layered documentary combines investigative journalism and live visual data analysis, but the story can also be watched online as a regular, linear documentary.
With its neat design, Money & Speed proves that the haptic quality of tablets offer great creative potential for documentaries. Through the tablet interface, interacting with data visualizations and accessing additional information becomes much more intuitive. Money & Speed: Inside the Black Box, offers a comprehensive viewing experience which becomes more personal through the tablet interaction.
