Take a look at Dai Sugano amazing video of afamily's struggle to stay together after the father is deported toMexico.
Dai, a multimedia producer at the San JoseMercury News, is one of the early innovators who used still photography mixedwith video to tell a story. With the release of DSLRs, I'm seeing a lot more ofthis type of storytelling coming from primarily newspaper still photographers.
What I am seeing now is a growing atheisticmovement that runs counter to the TV style of wide, medium and tightsequencing. I find the mixing of stills and video to be a tricky balance, butwhen it works--like in Sugano’s piece--boy does it work!
I think newspaper multimedia producers talk alot about being different than TV. Is the Sugano Atheistic how we will definethis difference?
