Bonnaroo 2013 photo by Tim Broekema

 

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)

What is Bonnaroo?

What is Bonnaroo?
Some may not know, although thousands (millions?) around the world do know. Bonnaroo is a four-day music and arts festival held on a 700-acre farm in Manchester, Tennessee near Nashville. This year, the festival is going on right now until June 17, and it’s sold out.

When you checkout the lineup, it’s easy to see why people zoom to Bonnaroo every year. This year, the festival is partnering with Soundslides to show people what the festival is like off-stage in the super-fun, super-lovely, laid-back environs of the farm.

We’ll post the audio slideshows as ... Read the full story

When is a story right for an audio slideshow?

How do you know a story will make a good audio slideshow? Matching the story to the storytelling tool is key, explained Mike Reilley in a chat with Soundslides recently. Reilley is an instructor in DePaul University's College of Communications. The hyperlocal news site redlineproject.org that he and his students started two years ago has won awards from the Associated Collegiate Press and the Online News Association. (See more about The Red Line Project in our last post.)

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
