The Daily Hampshire Gazette
I interned for the online desk at the Daily Hampshire Gazette in Northampton, Massachusetts. I helped to enrich the user experience of GazetteNET.com by providing multimedia content to accompany print stories. My main focus was on producing video, but I also handled the production of the Gazette's weekly sports podcast. This position allowed me to develop my multimedia skills; but more importantly it forced me to tell stories in new and interesting ways with a web audience in mind. I may not have had access to the most glamorous equipment, but I certainly learned what it takes to tell multimedia stories, and that's what really counts.
My multimedia stories were designed to supplement the print stories they accompanied. I worked with reporters to plan and develop my stories. I was responsible for orchestrating and conducting interviews, framing the story outside of the work done by the print reporter, shooting the video and of course editing and producing.
