Just like the photography section of the LA Times, I had a hard time finding the multimedia packages within the website. Once I finally found them, I learned that it was a part of the elusive photography section... of course. The few audio slide shows that I found reminded me a lot of the "One at Marquette" projects that my Journalism 1550 class is currently working on.
The multimedia packages range from the story of a determined boxer, to one about prison hospice. I really enjoyed the editing in these stories, no story was quite the same as the other. One included an on-screen interview with the subject. Another included interview's with the subject's family. The other package I saw made a really cool use of natural sound.
The stories are full of hope and heartache. A story about a man's neurological disease showed the toll that it took on his family. In another one, viewers learned from an insider what prison hospice was like (and it was almost too much to watch at certain points). The story about the boxer used the sound of a gloved fist colliding with an opponent's body to amp up viewers.
Once again, I am pleased with what I have found on latimes.com
