His choice / zijn keuze

  • A Poet’s Struggle With Alzheimer’s
    Almudena Toral produced a short video story about Alzheimer’s disease that stunned me. There was something about the frankness of the interview and also the choice she made to have poet Jack Agueros daughter conduct the interview. Beautiful work created for a class at the City University of New Yorks’ Graduate School of Journalism class I teach (video storytelling for the web),  it landed on the front of the New York Times website.
  •  Coal
    The super talented group of students at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill produced some stunning work as part of their News21 project. They really stretched in trying to think of new ways to tell the story of energy in the USA as part of what they call an interactive film.
  • Metropolis
    In terms of great visuals, this story by Henry Joost and Ariel Shulman about artist Chris Burden’s Metropolis project is  a wonderful dance of music, visuals and a stunning use of silence. Even though I don’t own a car or live in Los Angeles, it made me rally want to see the exhibition and more of Burden’s work. Metropolis
