I experimented on new ways of telling stories about youth empowerment and produced a short-form multimedia about the dancesport grassroots program in Cebu City, Philippines, which was published on www.sunstar.com.ph and www.multimedia.sunstar.com.ph in June 2012.
In my ‘Dancesport for Free’ production, which you can check here, I combined multimedia elements like texts, video, photographs, audio and social media in telling my story for different digital platforms. It was the first time I produced a multimedia using a DSLR camera and Adobe Premiere for video editing. I uploaded my material on Vimeo and YouTube, and I also used social media, specifically Twitter and Facebook, to further distribute and promote my content. The story was shared on Sun.Star Philippines News and @sunstaronline.
The Dancesport for Free inspired me to produce a second part using a cinematic multimedia approach, and sidebar features using infographics. The production is set in June 2013 and I am hoping to publish an iBook on the dancesport multimedia series by the end of the year, and make it available for tablet and mobile users.
