First day with Soundslides
The journalists in the training session here in Saigon have impressed me with their enthusiasm.
Have a look at this Soundslides created by Nguyen Tien Giang of the Saigon Times on Tuesday night. He recalled this photo essay by one of the newspapers reporters (yeah, not a photojournalist) and persuaded another colleague (one in my workshop) to voice the narration. They told me she simply read the captions they already had with the story. Giang added the music using Adobe Audition. I was so surprised.
Everyone seems rather excited about the possibilities for online storytelling.
