In mid-2011 the Mines Advisory Group (MAG) commissioned MediaStorm to create a documentary to profile their work, but more importantly to create a strong, compelling case for the problem they are trying to solve and the impact it has on local populations. Laos, being the most heavily bombed country in history, was chosen as the country to best represent MAG’s work. The result was Surviving the Peace.
The project brought several challenges with it, including safety concerns, difficult interview conditions, pressing time constraints, and, as almost always, the challenge of combining compelling narrative with historical and promotional information. Our new Online Training Module, The Making Of: Surviving the Peace, takes you behind the scenes of this process.
Join a conversation between Director of Photography and Producer, Rick Gershon, and MediaStorm Executive Producer, Brian Storm, as they break down the process and decisions that went into the production of Surviving the Peace.
Whether you’re an established photographer looking to transition to multimedia storytelling or a student wanting to expand your storytelling skills, MediaStorm’s online training provides a practical overview that will further your multimedia storytelling skills.
Individual and multi-user access to a range of modules are available in our Online Training section.
