MediaStorm Multimedia Workshop launches new projects, Applications now open for 2011 Workshops

From November 13-19, 2010, we held our eighth MediaStorm Multimedia Workshop. Two teams of talented professionals, along with MediaStorm Producers Tim McLaughlin and Jennifer Redfearn, researched, reported, and produced the following projects:

Mr. Blues by Mariana Bazo, Benjamin Norman, and J. Pinkley
Samuel Hargress Jr. is the owner of Paris Blues bar in Harlem, New York. The bar attracts a cast of characters that could have come from Cheers, Harlem-style. While witnessing dramatic changes in the neighborhood, Sam created a timeless place where regulars dance in their godfather hats, snakeskin leather shoes, and 1940’s styled zoot suits.

Running with Scissors by Ricky John Molloy, Thomas Tolstrup and Nancy J. Haws
Brian Machon has been practicing his craft for over 20 years and has close relationships with his clients. When he narrowly escaped a heart attack, questions surrounding his life, and his real family were raised.

The MediaStorm Multimedia Workshops in New York City are intensive, hands-on educational experiences in advanced multimedia storytelling.

Over the course of a week, participants work in three-person teams, reporting and editing in collaboration with a seasoned multimedia professional to produce a multimedia project for distribution across multiple platforms.
