Video standout in Flash package

Some nice video work by Jorge Sanhueza-Lyon in a package about Amercian racism from the Austin (Texas) American-Statesman newspaper. Each of the four main stories has a single Flash video segment. Some of the interviews are staggering (racism quite clearly has not been wiped out).

The package itself is a bit clunky. Too many pieces pop up in separate windows outside the package. I see this a lot, and I think it’s probably just a matter of time until the new Flash journalists start crafting packages that are better integrated and less like a bricolage of cutouts from the print newspaper. I don’t mean to hammer the people who put this together; it’s just that I’m sure their next package will be better.

Video edited by Zach Ryall. Flash design by Vasin Omer Douglas. Fine narration by Bavu Blakes. Check out the credits: This was a big project!

Tipped by Interactive Narratives.
