  9. ❖ Takes the intimacy of an audio story and merges

    it with the power of photography. What is an audio slideshow ❖ Consciously editing them together (the pacing, the occasional movement, the pairing) creates a powerful experience. ❖ What makes this different from video? It typically offers better image quality and more user controls. ❖ Captions give the viewer/listener the ability to experience the story on a different level. It can say things you could not achieve through images or sound, especially background/ contextual information. ❖ An audio slideshow is perhaps the easiest, more affordable – in both time and resources – type of multimedia one can do. ❖ It is scalable in both a deadline driven situation or a longer- term project.
  10. ..with moving video, the viewers eye is centered – broadly,

    locked to the framing of the video camera. With still images, the eye roams. It stops and moves and stops and moves. Frozen gestures and expressions kick off a cognitive process – thinking – that moving images simply never do.
 Something similar is true of good audio. The best audio blends reportage (‘being me, being here’) with the kind of aural cues that make audiences think and wander off down their own pathways while still engaging with the sound.
 Put the two together – great audio documentary and great still images – and you have something that is potentially MORE than great storytelling.˝ Benjamin Charleston

Reason for every pairing. ❖ Selective movement. ❖How can you make it great? Title and credit slides.
