Gary Hayes's curator insight, January 5, 8:20 AM

Quote "

One thing that struck me as I was putting together the publication is that it was shock full of great examples of storytelling in the ”Now Media” vein – from documentaries to ads, from TV series to native online content. All in all, a pretty great recap of what 2013 was all about, multiplatform and transmedia storytelling-wise.*

To make all of the examples a bit more accessible, here they are, with links and trailers. The best of 2013, according to the participants in ”One Year In Now Media”! For the full context of the comments, please go read the publication on Slideshare."

This is the trailer for the Being There movie which has beautiful pics of Norway and Japan packed with amazing stunts from great freestyle skiers. One of them is noother than World Champion and Olympic Winner Aksel Lund Svindal who didn't change his career plans but demonstrated - if needed - how complete athletes ski racers were.

Remember ski racing?
Brad Tollefson's insight:

As much as Shiffrin is seen as the future of U.S. alpine skiing, she views the future as much bigger than her, “In these upcoming years, it’s not going to be one or two individuals as the face of the U.S. ski team, it’s going to be everybody. Success is everywhere. Going into the Olympics with that spirit is exciting.”...
