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

leave a comment »

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.

Ice Harvest

with one comment

Each year locals in Tulley harvest ice on a frozen lake to recall the tradition. The old tradition was used before there were refrigerators so people could keep items cold. In this video, a description of the harvest and how it is done are portrayed. The people of the town keep the tradition alive each and every year.

Tully Ice Harvest Festival

leave a comment »

This is a video portraying what goes into “ice harvesting.” Gordon Howard, a volunteer with the Tully Ice Harvest Festival in Tully, NY, explains what goes on at Green Lake, which was where this footage was shot. This was done in 2009.

Each year in Tully, people come together and harvest the ice, which means they basically cut it into squares and store it in an Ice House.

Farmers had their own ponds and had an ice house to help keep their milk cold and anything else that might need refrigeration, Howard said. This was very helpful back in the old days. When people started getting refrigerators, it became more commercial.
