MediaStorm 2013 Workshop Dates Announced

Methodology photo

We are excited to be entering into our sixth training year at MediaStorm. Each year our workshops attract leading industry professionals looking to advance their multimedia and storytelling skills. We’ve now had more than 100 participants come through our professional workshops and we continue to be humbled by how much they take away from the experience.

John Temple, now managing editor at the Washington Post, told us that our Methodology Workshop gave him, “time to stop and step into a different way of seeing journalism.” He said, “I came away inspired by what’s possible if we commit to a different way of thinking about stories.”

After taking our Storytelling Workshop, Simon Schorno, head of media relations for the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in North America, had the following to say, “The passion of the entire MediaStorm crew for documentary storytelling, their professionalism, their willingness to share what they know and their commitment to help the team produce something we could all be proud of were outstanding.”

Each year our workshop participants remind us what an exciting time it is for our industry and how important it is to keep learning and innovating.

In 2013 we’ll be offering three Methodology, three Storytelling, and four One-day workshops at our studio in Brooklyn, NY. We are looking forward to another exciting, innovative and challenging training year. We hope you’ll be able to join us.

New MediaStorm Advanced Multimedia Workshop Projects Launched, Additional Workshop Dates Added

From March 6-12, 2010, we held our sixth MediaStorm Advanced Multimedia Reporting Workshop. Three teams of talented professionals, along with MediaStorm Producer Eric Maierson and guest producers Scott Anger and Rick Gershon, conceived, reported, and produced the following projects:


Take Care by Gillian Laub, Henrik Björnsson, Elena Ghanotakis, and Laura Varma
Virginia Gandee’s brilliant red hair and dozen tattoos belie the reality of this 22-year-old’s life. Inside her family’s Staten Island trailer her caregiving goes far beyond the love she has for her daughter.


Close to Home by Mary Beth Meehan, Michele Asselin and Maria Finitzo
Roxanne Pickering is a Brooklyn resident bound by family and economics to live near the Gowanus Canal, a polluted waterway recently declared an EPA superfund site.


Johnnie Footman: New York City’s 90-year-old Cabbie by Jan Johannessen and Charlotte Oestervang
Johnnie Footman, 90, may be the oldest cabbie in New York City. His age limits his time in the cab, but he remains young at heart carrying a cigar in his mouth, a fake spider around his neck, and a cap reading: “Old Dude made of Achey Breaky Parts.”

The MediaStorm Advanced Multimedia Reporting Workshops in New York City are intensive, hands-on educational experiences in advanced multimedia storytelling.

Over the course of a week, participants work in three-person teams, reporting and editing in collaboration with a seasoned multimedia professional to produce a multimedia project for distribution across multiple platforms.

We will be holding two more Advanced Multimedia Reporting Workshops in 2010:

  • Workshop Seven: July 17-23, 2010 – Application Deadline: Monday May 3, 2010
  • Workshop Eight: November 6-12, 2010 – Application Deadline: Monday September 13, 2010
