Thirst In The Mojave, a new Multimedia piece from the Las Vegas Sun. CLICK ON IMAGE TO START. Great combination of video, stills and graphics. Even though there are technical problems like out of focus shots, the editing and the pacing makes it work. Maybe more b-roll shots to cover some of the technical problems would have worked better. Also credits at the end would have been nice. Multimedia projects like this seem to be increasing on newspaper websites as we get better and faster at doing it, despite shrinking staff everywhere. For this piece, according to the producer, ” about 20 hours of footage were shot and edited down to 22 minutes for the main narrative. “The piece was also edited for TV…” something I think newspapers have to consider more and more for some projects of this scale. What do you guys think?
