All of us here at MediaStorm spend a lot of time looking for and talking about new stories, websites, and products that inspire us and help us to make better multimedia. We thought it would be fun to share some of our picks with you, with a little bit about why we liked the pieces, and get some ideas from everyone out there as well. We're starting off today with some projects we've been watching over the last couple of weeks. They aren't all new, it's by no means a comprehensive list, but hopefully it will get a dialogue going.

MediaStorm’s Multimedia Stimulus Plan

Given the tough economic climate and the critical need for multimedia training, MediaStorm will be holding a one-time, tuition-free Advanced Multimedia Reporting Workshop, in Brooklyn, NY from June 20-26, 2009. The MediaStorm Advanced Multimedia Workshops are designed for multimedia storytellers who want to get to the next level. It is not an introductory course. Students are responsible for their own travel, room and board. Reporters are expected to have a high level of competency with still photography, and be familiar with audio and video techniques. Editors are expected to be comfortable in Final Cut Pro. We only have spots for 8 participants as Multimedia Reporters, Editors or Observers so we are expecting a competitive process. Applications are due no later than Friday, May 15, 2009. Participants will be selected based on the content of their applications.
