The end of big (media): When news orgs move from brands to platforms for talent

The end of big (media): When news orgs move from brands to platforms for talent | Hitchhiker | Scoop.it
"What if news organizations confronted the reality that nearly all media will be 'social media' a decade hence?
Minna Kilpeläinen's insight:

"On Election Day 2012, more than 20 percent of NYTimes.com traffic visited Nate Silver’s blog. At the same time, his book had just been released. The Times had little role in Silver’s book. But imagine it had a big one; imagine the way it would open revenue possibilities, taking advantage of the giant platform the Times provided Silver. Publishing books, hosting events, and public speaking are just the beginning."

Back home – Photographer: Gianmarco Panucci

Back home – Photographer: Gianmarco Panucci | Hitchhiker | Scoop.it

Between 1999 and 2001 in Montes de Maria area, wich includes the regions of Sucre and Bolivar, armed groups of people commited 72 massacres, considered to be the most serious in the history of this Country.
The one occured in Chengue was definitely one of the most violent.
On the 17th of January 2001 in this village of 1300 people, 27 died and all the others were forced to leave.
Ten years later only 60 out of 1300 people who lived there before, came back to start over again.
Life condition though is difficult: people who used to live quietly before the rise of paramilitarism, are now struggling in the less inhabited places of Montes de Maria zone and one of the poorest village of Colombia. - Gianmarco Panucci

The chechen refugees | Photographer: Gianni Giosue

The chechen refugees | Photographer: Gianni Giosue | Hitchhiker | Scoop.it

My project wants to document the daily lives of the Chechen refugees living in the Pankisi Valley, Republic of Georgia. They came to Georgia about 12 years ago following the wars that ravaged the Republic of Chechnya in 1994-96 and 1999-2000. 

Ever since they have been trying to relocate to a third country or to start a new life. Some of them managed to be relocated to Northern America or to some European states. 

Some others stayed behind and were left in a legal limbo. It takes about 10 years to be able to qualify for Georgian citizenship. Some of them still have no documents: as a consequence it is difficult to be integrated, find a job and live a normal life.- Gianni Giosue

Lonely planet Kamagasaki | Photographer: Shiho Fukada

Lonely planet Kamagasaki | Photographer: Shiho Fukada | Hitchhiker | Scoop.it

“There is no work now. If big companies like Toyota are firing people, why should there be any work here for us? If big banks in the U.S. collapse, why should there be any work here for us? “  says Hiroshi Nakao, 59 year old, former construction day laborer, who currently survives by picking through garbage and selling what he can.  

 

He is one of the hundreds of graying men in Kamagasaki, Osaka, Japan. It used to be a thriving day laborer’s town. Today it is home to about 25,000 mainly elderly former day laborers, with an estimated 1,300 who are homeless. It used to be called a “laborers town” but now it’s called a “welfare town” – a dumping ground of old men.

 

Alcoholism, poverty, street death, suicide, TB and most of all loneliness prevail here. They don’t have family ties and live and die alone as social outcasts from the mainstream “salary man” culture."- Shiho Fukada

Brad Tollefson's curator insight, April 22, 2013 6:38 PM
The work leverages the strengths of each medium it uses.

If you’re just putting video on the web, that’s not very exciting. The web is there to foster dialog, participation, it’s not television or a movie theater. If you’re going to use a mobile phone as one of your storytelling platforms, why not emphasize the user’s intimacy with the device. Smart phones have become intensely personal items.

In short, transmedia creators and producers would do well not to simply scatter their stories across different media. They have to carefully consider the features and strengths of the platform, and design the expression of that aspect of the narrative to take best advantage of them. 

It’s also important for creators to place within each expression of the story a marker of some sort that will lead the audience to the next medium. This can be done subtly, within the context of the story, but some aspect of the interface will also need to more overtly tell us how to get to the rest of the presentation. Fail to do that well, and you’re audience (or as I prefer to call them, participants) won’t be able to enjoy the complete work...

Debbie Elicksen 's comment, May 1, 2013 10:44 AM

What is Digital Storytelling and How to Get Started | Athabasca University e-Lab

What is Digital Storytelling and How to Get Started | Athabasca University e-Lab | Hitchhiker | Scoop.it

Via José Carlos
Minna Kilpeläinen's insight:

These are the arguments why digital stories are the most engaging stories today:

"Digital Stories are short, personal, multimedia tales. Written with feeling and in the first person there's a strictness to their construction: 250 words, a dozen or so pictures pictures, and two minutes is about the right length. Considered narratives which subject themselves to strictures of form tend to elegance. Digital Stories -- when properly done -- can be tight as sonnets: multimedia sonnets from the people. …and, when imagined as a tool of democratised media, it has -- I believe -- the potential to change the way we engage in our communities.

~ Daniel Meadows, www.photobus.co.uk

"In this age of increasing media monopolies, global media markets, and convergent media, mainstream media has struggled with its traditional methods of gathering news from diverse perspectives. […] This traditional approach has sharply contrasted with the rise of the community digital storytelling movement, a grassroots media phenomenon in which communities are creating their own short, three- to five- minute digital stories from the found material in their lives (digital video, photographs, letters, news clippings, etc). […] Though community digital stories are not professional productions, what community digital stories offer in terms of intimacy and authenticity is invaluable in providing multiple community perspectives on important life issues as well as providing an important and powerful forum for communities to tell their own truths in their own voices."


And these are the steps to follow when telling your own story:

Identify a place or person that will be the subject of your storyIf you have chosen a person, choose a location that will serve to “anchor” your story in a physical way in the community.Identify your audience for the story.  Will this be for a general audience, or are you targeting a particular age group?Identify a purpose for your story.  What do you want your audience to think about or understand after hearing your story?Use your knowledge of elements of storytelling or narrative and effective voice to create the story.Consider the structure of your narrative: introduction, body, conclusion, point of view, descriptive language, metaphor, characters, action, setting.Pay special attention to the literal “point of view.”  What will audiences “see” from the location/vantage point of your story? Plan and complete a draft of the story.Select other media that will add to the telling of your in a digital form (music, sound effects, etc).Complete a script for your story.Conference with colleagues in order to receive feedback and make any necessary revisions before recording your story.Practise and record your digital story for sharing.Share your digital story and reflect on your learning.

A Place To Be | Photographer: Marcus Reichmann

A Place To Be | Photographer: Marcus Reichmann | Hitchhiker | Scoop.it

Juli, Ivo, little Karla and baby Marla are a normal family. But they live in a place where statistics would never usually place them: four years ago, the family moved to the country and settled down on an old, dilapidated farm in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, the eastern German state which is currently suffering the most from the departure of young, educated people. 

However, the family has not made a dogma of their alternative way of living. They are neither organic farmers nor hippies, yet their new surroundings have changed their lives in that things have been decelerated. Marcus Reichmann, a photography student from Hannover, accompanied them on their quest for personal happiness. The result is a portrait of a normal young family – or a family that is anything but normal.
