MediaStorm: The Evolution of Photojournalism

If like me you are a big fan of photojournalism and multimedia storytelling then you need to make sure that you drop by MediaStorm. MediaStorm creates next generation storytelling and publishes social documentary projects incorporating photojournalism, interactivity, animation and video. MediaStorm documentaries that I have enjoyed include:

0010.jpg Kingsley’s Crossing: in this story a 23-year-old lifeguard from the impoverished town of Limbe, Cameroon, dreams of a better life in Europe. He embarks on a harrowing journey that takes him halfway across Africa. Photojournalist Olivier Jobard documents the passage.

Low Morale: Creep is a music video of Radiohead’s ‘Creep’ song. It took 3 months to create and contains over one million key frames. Creep was created as an extension to a series of shorts called `Low Morale’ which Bahrani began to develop during a well-paid, comfortable yet soul-destroying job as a senior designer in a multimedia agency. The countless days spent in the run down converted office, churning out banal multimedia and animation for faceless, lifeless, clueless blue chips had taken their toll on his soul. Creep became his creative escape tunnel.

(Quick advice: never take a soul destroying job in your life and if you do, make sure that you have an outlet!).

MediaStorm’s entire project list is worth an afternoon of viewing.
