Some of my favorite examples of multimedia storytelling combine more than one form of media to tell an interesting, sometimes less-than-obvious story, in an innovative way. This week, The New York Times does just that with a brilliant interactive that combines video and visualization to show how scenes from five of the nine best picture nominees were reassembled to promote the films. “Dissecting a Trailer: The Parts of the Film That Make the Cut” breaks down five Oscar-nominated movie trailers minute-by-minute, plotting the point at which each part of the trailer appears in the full-length movie. The piece also provides brief explanations with each trailer explaining the model that was used to construct it. Not only is this piece fun and engaging, but it’s a wonderful example of how multimedia storytelling is as much about finding new and interesting ways to frame our stories as it is making use of digital media to do so.
