Moviestorm for journalists - an intern’s view

Tara May Cox, studying at Broadcast Journalism at Bournemouth University in the south of the UK, spent the Easter holiday working with Moviestorm, focusing on understanding how this type of tool can be of relevance to journalists. After the Easter break, she wrote an article for Media Magazine’s ‘play and participation’ online supplement. She notes that “the digital revolution of the 21st century has meant a rise in media-literate public, especially the younger generation, but Moviestorm offers a different experience entirely than simply filming on your iPhone,” and that “with such a versatile animation concept, anything seems possible.”

Tara also created a video blog about her experiences.  She comments that “Moviestorm enabled me to create my own animation video-blog, something which could well become a welcome trend in the journalism and media industry. The software reminded me of The Sims, but was much more versatile, and I could do things such as lip-sync my audio clips to my character and have them present to me from the other side of the computer screen. I could also add a screen onto which I could embed video, and could make my character gesture to the video while it showed me the videos I had chosen. What I liked most about the software was that it was an excellent representation of an animated presentation, and for someone like me who gets nervous at presentations to big crowds of people; Moviestorm could be an innovative new tool in the business world.”
