Old stuff

Slideshow

We will use Soundslides (our software, and like Audacity, sort of the standard, powering for example New York Times shows). For now, take a look at their site, support, etc., and these examples:

  1. Indiana student who was new to multimedia
  2. Indiana student who had a good deal of experience at photography.
  3. One from our Great Migration class of 2011 (also unregistered, note “headline here” and note the URL)
  4. One from a previous class when they covered the Easter Food Drive (in Firefox click the shiled to stop blocking the content)
  5. One from the LA Times on a dying man
 
Here are the photos to practice with:

You’ve got a Soundslides handout, and there’s a tutorial at UC Berkeley.  I’ll also link to another rubric for the images (Sue Robinson, Wisconsin) and a PDF on video and audio storytelling by Mark Hiland (also Gaylord Institute/AEJMC seminar). Here is a powerful example from NPR,  and this which could help with your final project, as well as a student project from Prof. Culver that has one instructive flaw.Don’t forget Mark Johnson’s Audio Slideshows video (sidebar).
I created a demo of a trip along the King’s Way in Prague (Soundslides version).

You need to be able to:

  • download the images above
  • play them as a slideshow on the desktop to get a feel
  • sketch out a script to go with them; about 3 to 5 seconds per slide, aiming for about 45 seconds to a minute total
  • use this audio file to build on (Right click, Save Link/Target as—don’t try to open it
  • follow the handout to import the photos and audio
  • add a headline, some titles, a caption, a lower third, adjust the timing of some slides, change the order of some slides, delete at least one slide
  • export to the Web and view (click on the index.html file)

We’ll keep going with this and related video tips next class. We’ll also be discussing plans for interviews in the field.
