The Tiziano Project launches multimedia platform StoriesFrom

Knight News Challenge winner the Tiziano Project has launched a new storytelling platform for journalists, documentarians, and amateur videographers.

 

StoriesFrom allows professional and amateur filmmakers a relatively easy way to produce an online multimedia package by using tools found around the Internet.
