Multimedia story depicts the damage to Hattiesburg, MS, and Southern Miss from a EF-4 tornado

Following is a multimedia slide show about the Feb. 10 tornado that ravaged Hattiesburg, Mississippi, and Southern Miss. I am posting it here for several reasons. First, it’s a great example of how powerful a slide show can be without words. The pictures in this piece tell the story, and they tell it very well. You a stronger than me if you don’t tear up watching this.

We will be doing slide shows in class, as well as videos. This one demonstrates some of the techniques that we will be using: Vivid photography, a variety of pictures and types of pictures, a variety of shots (close-ups, long-shots). Also, it employs text well to tell its story.

It is a powerful piece of multimedia storytelling, and I hope you find it cathartic as we mourn the losses from the tornado. One of my friends shared this piece on Facebook. It was posted on the YouTube account of someone called Dave Brown. I wish I could say more to give whoever created this credit for this work. Go ahead and watch it. Be sure to have some tissues handy.
