Excellent Use of Multimedia in Journalism

I came upon this article because its topic, Flex dancing, was captured so excellently in a video. I was captivated every second seeing these dancers do things with their bodies I didn’t think were possible. From every moonwalk to literal flex, it had me hooked. Then I found out about the article it was attached to by Julie Turkewitz of the New York Times. Within it was a written piece of the history and current state of the dance, and also a slideshow of stunning photographs of the dancers. All of the forms of media came together to make a very compelling story that I enjoyed immensely.

Final Cut Switch

Standard

While Final Cut Studio was supposed to be strictly for professionals, Apple decided to change it up, making it more user friendly and consumer based a few years ago. Many previous users of Final Cut were extremely upset about the switch, while on the other hand the average consumers were thrilled with how user-friendly the program was. 

The first impression of many people was related to how expensive the program was. Even for an upgrade from the previous version of Final Cut, it cost about $300. However, people still paid much to use the video editing software, for it is the best of its kind. But, people soon discovered that it was not as professional as they initially thought.

As someone who loves taking pictures, I was happy to find an article like this to organize my photos. I never have really had an application to keep all of my pictures intact, so I was happy to find an article that mentions apps that can adequately organize my pictures. I was happy to see the video in the article, for it taught me how there are multiple apps that can organize my photos into albums. Thanks to these apps I have a channel to look back on and appreciate the pictures from the past.
