This past Sunday marked the 32nd annual Gémeaux Awards, and we are thrilled to let you know that TFO’s hit music app, BRBR, which was designed and developed by our very-own in-house talent, took home the award for Best Digital Component of a TV Episode or Series!
Created to enhance and build upon the TFO Network’s televised music competition, Planète BRBR, the BRBR app sky rockets fans into an immersive 3D universe that showcases Canada’s top Indie-Francophone talent.
From in-depth bios of the artists and bands featured on the show to exclusive tracks, videos, interviews and behind-the-scenes footage, the app’s elaborate constellation of music-related content will have any and all music fans reeling!
About our Process
Honoured to have been selected by TFO to contribute our expertise to this exciting project; LVL’s development, UI and UX teams worked around the clock to help bring the Canadian French-language broadcaster’s vision to life and onto the market within a 4-month timeframe.
Our designers put their creative skills to work, taking TFO’s great concept of a musical universe brimming with Franco-Canadian talent to the next-level. Choosing to build on the Planète BRBR TV show’s look-and-feel, they integrated the Unity®-powered 3D navigational structures rooted in our E2 Video Experience Platform into the experience. These dynamic elements are represented within the app as starry constellations that represent either specific provinces or music genres.
The end-result of our efforts has taken the form of a highly immersive, out-of-this-world musical adventure that guarantees exciting content discovery and consumption experiences for Francophiles and music fans alike. The product of a fruitful and rewarding collaboration between the LVL and TFO teams; we are over-the-moon knowing that BRBR has been recognized by our partners and associates across the industry.
