The Goggles (a.k.a. Mike Simons and Paul Shoebridge) took home two Webby Awards this week for their interactive online documentary, “Welcome To Pine Point“. The duo are formerly creative directors of Adbusters Magazine.
“Welcome to Pine Point” explores the memories of residents from the former mining community of Pine Point, Northwest Territories, as well as how we remember the past. The project was produced in Vancouver by the National Film Board of Canada.
Winners will be honoured at a ceremony in New York City on June 13, where they will have the opportunity to deliver one of the Webby Awards’ famous five-word speeches.
