Final Project Concept

My project will be created for the audience of the  Visit McMinnville Destination Marketing Organization. Visitors to the website will find the story and project compelling because information about kid friendly features in the town will be presented in an engaging way using several forms of multimedia.

Photo and Audio Story:

A Visit to Boulderneigh Fiber Farm

Boulderneigh is a small picturesque farm just outside of Amity in Yamhill County, Oregon. The business specializes in fine fleece from Shetland Sheep.  For my photo and audio story I talked with owner Michelle McMillen.

This is the story of how the fiber farm business got started and how it led Michelle to a newfound interest in spinning and knitting.

Photo/Aural Reflection:

A Brother and Sister in Love

weddingring-jhNPR’s February 13, 2015 picture story about a priest and nun who fell in love is the topic of this visual/aural reflection. A Brother and Sister in Love was created and narrated by their son, John Fugelsang.

As the story begins, an organ hums while the narrator tells a joke about being catholic.  

Multimedia Story Analysis 2:

Shining a Light on a Vulnerable Population

For my second multimedia analysis, I will look at Shining a Light on a Vulnerable Population, written by James Barragán and published November 13, 2015 by the Austin American-Statesman.

The topic of this story is homelessness. The report looks at why transients in the Travis County, Texas area are dying prematurely at a higher rate than the general population.
