Peter Chen’s ice harvest video from Tully, NY, offers example of multimedia storytelling

Now that you have all finished your own ice harvest multimedia storytelling projects, I thought I’d give you a glimpse of what a professional did. This is a video by University of Southern Mississippi instructor Peter Chen (my husband) that he shot and edited while working for The Post-Standard newspaper in Syracuse, NY.

Take a look at his blog post and how it tells enough of the story to whet your appetite and fill in the blanks of the story, so it all makes sense. He also uses text in the blog post and the video to tell you that the event took place in Tully, near Syracuse, NY. Why might he have included “Syracuse,” rather than just say it took place in Tully?

Also, note the length. It is short, but not too short. Note the length of the video, as well. It’s just more than 2 minutes. That’s a lot of editing! Let’s talk about how he put it together and how it compares to what you did.
