The sound and the story

One exciting part of the growing technology in multimedia is finding new ways to tell stories.
My friend Jaime Oppenheimer put together this video last week from the Kansas State Fair, composed entirely of natural sound.
Besides being a talented photographer, and one of the first in our newsroom to embrace video, Jaime is also a percussionist.  She combined her talents to produce a Stomp-inspired piece that in 30 seconds give you the sights and sounds of the state fair, with a little rhythmic flair.
For more on “nat sound” see this tutorial video from “Melissa Worden’s X-Degree.”
Multimedia moral:  Use your creativity to let the technology set you free from your self-imposed boundaries of what journalism should be, finding new, inventive ways to tell stories.
