For established newspapers struggling with their position on the internet, photojournalism has recently become the route of choice. With the Lens by NYTimes.com, and The Big Picture by Boston.com finding their legs online, others are following suit. One prime example is MediaStorm, sponsored by the WashingtonPost.com. Their moving projects include short scripted films, as well as strong narrative, touching documentaries. The online package took a year and half to produce and it shows. The expert editing, original music, and utilization of both stills in with video make for an engrossing experience.
