The Protojournalist: An NPR Project
Originally published on Fri June 14, 2013 1:19 pm
Seeing journalism changing. Storytelling, too.
Looking for new ways to tell stories. Like looking for alternative energies.
We can break news and break barriers at the same time.
The Protojournalist project is dedicated to the exploration of story – auditory, interactive, visual, written. Story as instant conversation, as chart, as poetry, as song, as movie, as photo, as sound, as widget, as something we've yet to imagine.
Can you tell a tale in three photos? Or set a news story to the tune of a Broadway melody? Let's experiment with starter stories. Quickburst stories. Backward stories. Palindromic stories.
Stretch the language; not the truth. Provide proof; be provocative. Stories can be fractional — and factual.
Let's imagine a future for storytelling and journalism that is evolving. Evocative. Eclectic. Engaging. Energizing. Innovative. Inquiring. Inclusive. Inspiring.
Not exactly sure what all of this means, or will mean in the fastcoming future. One thing is for sure: We are all part of the story.
