Soundslides: Leaving Arizona
The Soundslide entitled “Leaving Arizona” is a great example of the lessons taught in chapter six of Journalism Next by Mark Briggs. This slide show is well put together and follows the path of a Latino family fleeing Arizona immigration laws. It showcases natural sound, voice overs, and beautiful photos.
The pictures which are used match the narration. Even that natural sound fits with the story.
This presentation is especially impressive because they lay a translator over top of the audio for some of the Spanish speaking subjects. If the audio were not as well mixed as it is the presentation would be very confusing.
Obviously, the reporter went and covered the family live just like Briggs suggest in the book. Being on site with the family as they were moving really comes through in this piece.
This Soundslides presentation was very enjoyable.
