Shooting video an edge for print?

That’s a question that crossed my mind yesterday when I started writing my story on Ooh Aah, the University of Arizona superfan. The result was quite interesting. Although I jot down most images when I’m solely writing a print story, it was interesting to note that the video I captured was truly helpful when recapping Ooh Aah’s performance.

I think that multimedia is extremely important and that newspapers should pick up on this medium. I won’t say video is the best for print reporters who are trying to do both in all instances — it probably won’t be very good to go back and look at video when on tight deadline — but it was beneficial for my piece. I had a little more time to play with the story.

    multimedia takes into acount that people are different and get their information in different ways.

    Live in the 21 century, use 21 century tools, it makes sense to me.
