Using Unique Methods And Different Platforms To Tell A Powerful Story

When a journalist is asked what makes a powerful story they may reply with an answer that includes a well written script, visually appealing, unique characters with a different perspective, and plenty of natural sound. But there are so many ways to make a story powerful. Sometimes just finding a different way to tell a story can make it powerful. Below is a few examples.

Full nat sound stories can be quite powerful if done correctly. Well, this story I'm going to share with you isn't exactly a nat sound story, but it doesn't have any voice overs either. It's a sad story about a teen who has ALS disease. After being told she only has a few months to live she decides what she wants to do with those last few months.

Also... wonder how powerful facebook statues can be? This next story is a heartbreaking story told through facebook posts. It's a story of a mother who shares her joys and heartbreaks of motherhood, with an unexpected twist at the end.

I've always had a love for photography. The way one can manipulate the color, angle, and perspective of an object in a photo to let the viewer feel an emotion has always fascinated me. Just a single photo or a series of photos can also make for a powerful statement or story.

And of course this entry wouldn't be complete if I didn't include the site Media Storm. The entire site is composed of powerful stories told in unique ways through multimedia story telling.
