Years ago I did some multimedia projects combining audio recordings and photography. I’m interested in getting back to this form, which I think can be very powerful. I’d like to profile some ceramic artists. This post is simply testing the upload of a .mov file format onto this blog. There’s a lot of technical mumbo-jumbo about file formats when you combine different media forms like video, photography, audio and text.
To be honest, the complexity drove me away from this for a decade. I’m hoping the tech world has simplified the process in the intervening years.
By way of background, in 2010 I was working with a photography nonprofit called Working With Artists. That organization arranged a photography session with survivors of breast cancer. I ended up photographing a number of survivors, and instead of just photography I also added some audio recordings of conversations I had with each woman. I combined the two formats into this multimedia slideshow.
