In a four-day online auction, MSNBC.com won the exclusive Internet rights for a feature about Iraqi Kurdistan by photographer Ed Kashi. The feature was produced by MediaStorm. We’ll see the premiere on Nov. 13.

Kashi originally shot the pictures on assignment for National Geographic.

More details at PopPhoto.com, including this:

The piece produced by [Brian] Storm [president of MediaStorm] uses virtually every frame that Kashi shot for the project. “It’s probably somewhere between 7,000 and 10,000 frames,” Storm estimates. The frames run in order, quickly, like old-fashioned flipbook animation, to create a hybrid between still and moving pictures.

The feature reportedly runs 12 minutes. Yeesh!

How much did they get?

I like MediaStorm’s work, but I agree with your “Yeesh.” I haven’t yet gotten through an entire piece.

They aren’t telling. See this followup post.
