How AlJazeera plans its interactive storytelling projects

See The War Across the River about refugees from the Central African Republic, or Freedom Denied, an interactive exploration of what happens to some Palestinians after they’re arrested by the Israeli military. Palestine Remix, one of the largest interactives produced by AlJazeera, allows users to create their own narrative by re-editing footage from 17 different films about Palestine. Credit: AlJazeera. How does AlJazeera plan and design these interactive storytelling projects? AlJazeera‘s Konstantinos Antonopoulos, a senior interactive designer, and Mohammed Haddad, a data journalist, gave a presentation this week on their editorial and design process during the AlJazeera Forum in Doha, Qatar.

The story is the foundation. The story is the foundation to interactive storytelling. Restraint in the newsroom. How to get started as a multimedia journalist. I’ve now covered almost all of the 5 roles in an investigations team I posted about earlier this year – apart from the multimedia journalist role. So here’s how to get started in that role. Multimedia journalism is a pretty nebulous term. As a result, in my experience, when students try to adopt the role two main problems recur: 1) having a narrow assumption of what multimedia means (i.e. video) and 2) not being able to see the multimedia possibilities of your work.

Multimedia journalism is a very different beast to broadcast journalism. In broadcast journalism your role was comparatively simple: you had one medium to use, and a well-worn format to employ. Put another way: in broadcast journalism the medium was imposed on the story; in multimedia journalism, the story imposes the medium. Multimedia also has to deal with the style challenge I’ve written about previously: With that in mind, then, here are 4 steps to get started in multimedia journalism: Step 2: Plan and practise So practise.

La Fabrique #1 : Un projet de journalisme un peu dingue

C’est en effec­tu­ant deux enquêtes pour l’Hémi­cy­cle et le Monde Argent que j’ai com­pris l’ampleur de ce scan­dale des rési­dences de tourisme. Jusque là je pen­sais comme beau­coup de gens que ces pro­prié­taires nan­tis qui défis­cal­i­saient étaient quelque part vic­time de leur naïveté, et sans doute pourquoi pas, de leur cupidité. Des investisse­ments qui rap­por­tent 6 voire 8% de ren­de­ment annuel, ça n’existe que dans les rêves… de Pic­sou ! Même 4% d’ailleurs, par les temps qui courent ma bonne dame. Donc, ils avaient for­cé­ment voulu croire, des étoiles pleins les yeux, un com­mer­cial ultra-rôdé qui les avait embal­lés avec le pois­son, et hop, je vous rajoute une ron­delle de citron !
