Thinking visually…

My assignment for the next few weeks/month is to

  • think visually
  • . Not only do we have to set up a shoot date to get many of the illustrations for our textbook on videojournalism (dammit I need a name for this thing), we also need to keep current our Internet resources section. So I’ve been surfing some of my favorite contacts and came up with the following:

    Crystal’s Life
    It’s been done, but this one is beautifully done. The story of a homeless woman in her own words. A slideshow with beginning, middle and end. Wrapped up nicely.

    All I can say is, WOW. Who’d a thought – nature by moonlight. Thinking visually. Of course the music didn’t hurt.

    Shoe Shine
    Another classic, a shoeshiner tells his own story. Nice mix of stills and video, but the quick cuts to black were disconcerting initially.
