Visual Storytelling with Audio

Last week I assisted for one of the best instructors, and for one of the best classes of my experience here at SFPW. It was called Visual Storytelling with Audio with Bob Sacha. View his blog here. He is the multimedia Producer at the Emmy and Webby Award winning production studio MediaStorm in NYC. It was a class that focuses more on capturing audio, and getting good interviews to combine with photos, to create a thought provoking short story. Most people came in having the basic concepts and personal style with photography, so we concentrated on learning the software, and what elements make a great multimedia piece. All the participants were amazing, and working for Bob, as I mentioned before, was a highlight of my experience here.

UPDATE: Bob was recently nominated for two national Emmy Awards for work he did in the past year at MediaStorm. Check it out here. Way to go Bob.

The Class

White Sands

On June 7th was a full moon, so I went to White Sands for the first time. We camped out in the back country which was amazing. The only thing that wasn’t fun was the sand got everywhere.
