DDay as it Happens from Digit on Vimeo.
Digit has been awarded the prestigious Royal Television Society award for Design & Craft Innovation for D-Day: As It Happens, in association with Channel 4 and Windfall Films. This is awarded at the judges' discretion and we are extremely proud that a project dear to our hearts has been recognised at this level.
D-Day: As It Happens is a multi-channel content experience that accompanied a live television show, recounting the lives of seven individuals that were present throughout D-Day. We created and co-ordinated a web platform and Twitter feeds that followed the individuals on their separate journeys throughout, which became a go-to source for news and updates on these heroic individuals alongside the two-part television documentary. It is an example of telling a familiar, historic story from the past through today's technology and real-time content feeds.
The platform is still live, you can explore it here: http://d.igit.io/dday7 and of course the story continues on Twitter: https://twitter.com/dday7
