Last June, photographer Tim Broekema and writer Jon Waterhouse spent four explosive days at the Bonnaroo music and art festival gathering material for audio slideshows that reveal what festival life is like for the thousands of Bonnoroovians every year. When Neal Cohen of Superfly Presents asked Soundslides to partner with Bonnaroo, he said he wanted a software that was super easy to use and quick and cost efficient to get online.

Part 2 of Broekema's post-festival reflections contains tips on how to prepare for such a tightly scheduled, high-octane assignment. (Here's Part 1)

Bonnaroo starts tomorrow, June 13, and we're excited to have one of our best Soundslides experts on the ground, photographer and Western Kentucky University professor Tim Broekema, along with writer/producer Jon Waterhouse, to capture the atmosphere of this wild festival with audio slideshows. (We'll post them here!)

As he was packing up to head out this week, Tim riffed a little for us on why the audio slideshow works so well for Bonnaroo, and what he's facing as he goes into the heady (and fun) action of the next four days in Manchester, Tennessee.

Bonnaroo + Soundslides = Fun!

Bonnaroo is using Soundslides to create audio slideshows this year. Photographer Tim Broekema and writer Jon Waterhouse will roam the music and arts festival June 13-17 looking for the weird, wild and wonderful. They’ll bring you eight audio slideshow stories during the festival, two every day, showing the real-life experiences of hundreds of Boonarovians.

Ram Wows Audience with Farmer Ad That’s an Audio Slideshow

As a kid, whenever I’d visit my Great Aunt Bet in Jackson, Wyo., at about noon every day we’d stop everything and listen to the Paul Harvey radio show. I was pretty young, and didn’t always understand his messages, but I did love the brash energy of his voice. So I wasn’t surprised last month to hear Harvey’s voice narrating the Ram Trucks Farmer ad during the Super Bowl. What I was surprised (and excited) about is how the ad agency used the audio slideshow to deliver its message.
Audio slideshow goes Ram tough

The Red Line Project — a hyperlocal news site at DePaul University

 

In 2009, when Mike Reilley joined the faculty at DePaul University's College of Communication journalism program in Chicago, he and his students had an arsenal of multimedia software at hand, including Soundslides. But they needed a thematic focus and an online platform for their work. Choosing a theme wasn't easy. Their subject would have to produce continual news stories and present easy access. The students also wanted to publish stories about areas of the city that were underserved by some of the major media outlets.

They zeroed in on Chicago’s Red Line, a 23.4 mile-long El train ... Read the full story
