It was interesting creating a project that is so critical of how we live our digital lives while being so immersed in technology and design. We had to make sure we always brought it back to the concept which is what our goal always is in our form of interactive documentary.

This interactive documentary produced by the NFB and The Guardian imagines what the seven deadly sins look like when updated for the digital age. Featuring “digital sin” confessions from a broad spectrum of contributors, including folk musician and activist Billy Bragg, comics Josie Long, Ophira Eisenberg and Bill Bailey, actress/comedian Mary Walsh, Seven Digital Deadly Sins reveals that these celebrities use and abuse the internet as well.
Viewers are able to share their own confessions, cast judgement on the confessions of others, and see whether they are more forgiving or more critical than their peers. This interactive documentary uses the “confessional” feature to provoke thought and consideration of how the internet affects our moral compass, as well as how we compare individually to our contemporaries.
