For a guy who’s built a business off producing highly visual multimedia packages, Brian Storm also understands the power of the word.
The founder of the New York multimedia-production house, MediaStorm, proved to be one quotable “dude,” as he would say, during a class in multimedia editing April 20 for faculty at Arizona State University’s Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication. Here are some of his pithy comments:
About the power of stills over video: “I love the frozen moment. It’s a much more contemplative moment.”
And on the ubiquity of cameras: “That doesn’t make someone a storyteller just because they have the tools. Here’s a pencil; does that make you Mark Twain?”
MediaStorm has won many awards, including four Webby Awards, three Emmy awards and the first duPont Award for Web-based production. Here’s more from Storm, who did a live chat with BusinessJournalism.org audience members earlier this year.
Storm received his master’s degree in photojournalism in 1995 from the University of Missouri.
