The reinvention of storytelling

digitalNarratWHY

Every now and then I’m asked about why we should reinvent the way we plan, produce and present our digital narratives. Why should we have to change the way of doing things that have been working for so long? Who wants to have their nonfiction pieces filled with bells and whistles, video and audio slideshows, … Continue reading

Breaking news, big events and the ‘second screen’

seconScreen

I remember the day the Egypt uprising began. It was Tuesday (25 January, 2011) and during the night I learned about it through Twitter – I was using my iPad.

narrativesHowTo

In early July 2011, I wrote for this blog an article about how change should happen in the way we plan, produce and present narratives for digital distribution.

Some weeks ago the iPad world was taken by surprise with a very impressing application. Biblion is the New York Public Library first application and was developed by Phillip R.

Narratives for digital distribution

narratives

EDIT: An edited version of this article was published on Nieman Storyboard website becoming the site’s most read article in 2011. The way we tell stories in the print media has been, mostly, the same for some time now. Space constraints and graphic layout have made the narrative flow a broken one.

Digital storytelling made easy!

hype

On my last article I’ve written about interactive infographics on tablets and the problem facing newsrooms around the world. Where previously newsrooms where able to produce such graphics for their online publications using Adobe’s Flash, for the iPad that knowledge was no longer useful.
