USATODAY: Virtual visit to Montreal
Posted 30 March 2005 - 07:28 PM
"So two years ago, there was nothing particularly innovative about the idea of yet another site attempting to present Montreal's best face on the internet. To do it with style, on the other hand, took a little more imagination (and time), and with the cumulative contributions of 50 artists and two production companies, MadeinMTL is a tourism site worthy of its subject. And even if you have no plans to visit Montreal, you'll still want to visit this virtual guide.
Launched in 2004 and a winner at the 2005 South By Southwest festival in the "Art" and "Best of Show" categories, MadeinMTL immediately impresses with its splash page — a striking collage of images with a look reminiscent of Polaroid print transfers. Pick your language of choice to enter the site, and MTL loads the Flash based presentation into a new window, opening with a progress bar that doubles as a personal interests 'slot machine' (which will make sense later) and then moving on to the only page that will be visible for the rest of your stay. (All content is available through drop downs or embedded files that appear on this one page.)"
