J. Pinkley

MMW 08: Nov 2010

Jenni Pinkley is the senior, award-winning, multimedia producer for StarTribune.com. I am always looking for the best way to tell the story no matter the platform. At the Star Tribune our photographers shoot both still and video stories and work with reporters to make the best use of those platforms through ongoing coaching, training and discussions.


Jenni participated in the November 2010 MediaStorm Storytelling Workshop. She had the following to say about her experience:


The advanced multimedia workshop really allowed our team of five to dissect elements of storytelling as we proceeded day-to-day. While our preview cut ended up feeling like a profile because our subject didn't really open up to us in the week we spent with him, we got valuable feedback from the group at week's end to rework the piece to develop other characters. Our team meshed well in spite of not ever having worked together before and the lesson in that is how important communication is to a successful story. The workshop was so energizing for new strategies to employ at the Star Tribune as we redesign our website to better showcase multimedia.
