Multimedia Stories

Page history last edited by Digital Explorations 13 years, 6 months ago

Why Choose Multimedia

Video brings viewers to the action, to the place central to see and hear.

Mixing text and image well can amplify the message: two plus two equals far more than four.

Audio and image complement one another, bringing the viewer close to the teller and to the teller's perspective.

 

Tools

Video Editing:  Basic tools-- iMovie (Mac) and Moviemaker(PC) ; Advanced tools: premiere (PC), FinalCutPro (Mac)

Picnik for image/text--example above

Voicethread for voice/image/text; Glogster for multimedia collages, example--a whole compendium of free, easy-to-use digital tools, described here by Alan Levine

Soundslide example (Many newspapers use this professional quality tool--inexpensive)
