'the build film' interactive documentary by instrument agency
instrument, an independent digital creative agency based in portland, oregon has launched an interactive documentary titled 'the build.'
the film portrays the values and culture of the local motorcycle builder community in portland, told through the personal stories of three
bike builders. shot during the fall and winter of 2012, the movie captures the cyclist enthusiasts in iconic oregon locations including the
gorge, mt. hood and downtown portland, as well as their own workshops. blending design and technology in groundbreaking ways,
the project pairs traditional filmmaking with new school interactive experiences that push the envelope of current browser technologies
like webgl and html5 video. 'the build' combines the efforts of instrument’s resident filmmaker, truen pence, creative director, martin linde,
and many dedicated members of the team.
