I became a storyteller to change the world. It wasn’t until I got older, more mature, that I realized I’d become a storyteller to help people connect. I believe it’s in that connection that we truly change our world. That’s why I’m so impressed with the work MediaStorm does.
On technical skills alone, the MediaStorm team can easily produce a beautiful film. What makes them so special—and I never got this until I took their storytelling workshop—is that they bring human connection into the process.
They emphasize the power of emotion in a way you don’t often hear. They bring a level of grace and dignity to the work that results in the most elegant stories about humans. They have inspired me to no longer settle for mediocrity, but to elevate my storytelling in a way that honors the people I feature.

As a print photojournalist, I went into MediaStorm's workshop with a skeptical eye. Two days later both my notebook and my brain were filled with the new ideas and opportunities being offered by the medium of web-based visual journalism. Two months later, I am still processing what I learned. This stuff isn't the future. It is now. I am convinced there has never been a better time to be a visual journalist. And there may be no person better suited to show you the way into this new medium than Brian Storm.

I learned more in a couple days with Brian than I could learn in several months any other way. I still refer to my notes from his workshop. Even more than the technical information I picked up, Brian's enthusiasm directly lead to a new vision for multimedia in our department.

So many papers are trying to rub sticks together to start a fire when all they need is a match. Brian's training with the Tribune Company helped focus the debate for what's important - good pictures and stories well told. Then he backed up his evangelizing with solid primers on technique.

Having Brian spend time with the photo directors and editors help set the tone for the direction we take in multimedia. The workshop opened up the possibilities that have gone mostly untested in the newspaper industry. As we move forward, these lessons learned will increase The Morning Call's audience especially when we tell stories with beautiful imagery and voices to create the complete narrative.
