Audio slideshow example February 17, 2009

Filed under: assignments — ematson @ 1:32 pm

I’m going to start posting links to various audio slideshows to help you get ideas for your slideshows and also to think about how you are going to approach the project.

Here is a recent one from the New York Times about everyday people in economically depressed Pontiac, Michigan. Notice how you don’t hear the voice of the reporter – it is all voices of the people the story is about. Notice all the background sounds – of the restaurant, etc. Notice how the people introduce themselves – it’s great to get this on tape to use in your piece.
