Media: Audio Slideshow
Turnaround time: More than a month
Description of story
Since 1984, Curt Brown has been a foster parent to several adult men with autism, living with them in his home in Gardiner, Maine. He has forged a deep bond with many of the residents, but the commitment has also entailed personal sacrifice, including long-term relationships. As he turns 65, Curt confronts what lies ahead for him, as well as for the seven men living with him.
Bond b/w Curt and Timmy is almost only in the audio. Is this a good use of multiple media to tell a richer story, or a weakness that the images do not more literally reinforce the audio? Is 3 parts effective, or would a longer single piece be better?
