Video Series – Andamanrising

A wonderful set of post-tsunami stories. An example to newspapers of what online video can be.

When the Asian tsunami hit southern Thailand in 2004, the sea that had sustained the region for generations – the Andaman – rose up, destroying families and killing thousands.
A team of journalists set out for the seaside province of Phang-nga to document the lives and culture of people living by the Andaman. They found a people marked – but not defined – by disaster, a people who have taken on challenges and risen above them.

About Phil Carpenter

Hi all. I'm a newspaper photo/video journalist at The Gazette in Montréal, Canada, and I'm just reviving my film making skills from my university days, for the online version of our paper. It's been 13years since I began shooting professionally, four years at The Gazette, and a year since I've begun shooting and producing video stories and documentary shorts. I'm enjoying it immensely. In addition I have taught photojournalism at Concordia University's school of journalism, been a guest lecturer and panelist on classes and workshops on photo and multi media journalism.
