This is my favorite video that my coworker AAron and I made at the National Western Stock Show this year. I think it works so well because we actually accomplished a lot of the basics of multimedia storytelling while having fun with the video.
We kept it short. We started strong. The audio drives the piece. We cut the interviews down to the basics, we didn't try to tell the entire story through the words (interview) instead we let the words give a flavor of the place and people. Cuts between video and photos are fairly seamless. And our main interview, the kid named Wyatt, was perfect. He was funny and witty and fun to watch.
