I’m presently listening to Brian Storm, my former MSNBC colleague and now multimedia storytelling visionary through his NYC-based production company, Media Storm. We’re both presenting at the Visual Journalism Bootcamp on Whidbey Island in Washington.
He does powerful work — we just watched an excerpt from Unintended Consequences — the children born of rape after the Rwanda Genocide in 1994.
We’re all here to inspire journalists to keep going, to keep creating, to see the opportunities. Brian’s takeaways:
– Do exceptional work.
– Create a franchise (use Amazon, iTunes, publish books).
– Build social credibility on MySpace (there are tons of people still there), Facebook, Twitter.
