In this much-needed examination of the principles of multimedia journalism, experienced journalists Richard Koci Hernandez and Jeremy Rue systemize and categorize the characteristics of the new, often experimental story forms that appear on today's digital news platforms. By identifying a classification of digital news packages, and introducing a new vocabulary for how content is packaged and presented, the authors give students and professionals alike a way to talk about and understand the importance of story design in an era of convergence storytelling.

Online, all forms of media are on the table: audio, video, images, graphics, and text are available to journalists at any type of media company as components with which to tell a story. This book provides insider instruction on how to package and interweave the different media forms together into an effective narrative structure. Featuring interviews with some of the most exceptional storytellers and innovators of our time, including web and interactive producers at the New York Times, NPR, The Marshall Project, The Guardian, National Film Board of Canada, and the Verge, this exciting and timely new book analyzes examples of innovative stories that leverage technology in unexpected ways to create entirely new experiences online that both engage and inform.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Hernandez and Rue have been key players in the evolution of multimedia storytelling. With this book they detail the key tenants and history of this emerging format with detailed case studies on some of the top producers working today." -Brian Storm, Founder, MediaStorm

"Hernandez and Rue take us behind the scenes to the pivotal moments that helped shape the techniques employed by today's best interactive storytellers. Along the way, they introduce us to a new way of categorizing stories, which gives those of us in the newsroom and classroom a foundation to think about new work." -Josh Williams, Multimedia Editor, The New York Times

"I saw a piece of art from Pop artist Donny Miller that stated: `Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to think they're original.' I appreciate the snark. But one truly needs to value history. If you understand how the past was shaped, your future will be better informed and more enlightened. Principles of Multimedia Journalism from Koci and Rue is a perfect combination of looking at the evolution of news design, diving deeply into recent case studies and exploring the current frameworks to help push us into the future." -Andrew DeVigal, University of Oregon School of Journalism & Communication
