What the judges said: “This is a perfect example of breaking down a cultural phenomena in a sophisticated manner. The graphics on the side almost invent a new way of hearing, it’s all so coordinated. It took an extremely creative approach to dealing with audio. Super innovative in blending video and motion graphic that is fresh and engaging and pulls you through what is a fairly long video.”
What the judges said: “The animations were focused in such a way that it gave you a sense of place. They work beautifully on mobile, and are really tightly edited.”
What the judges said: “I love it. Visually it’s incredible. It’s delightful. It’s informative. The piece was phenomenal and the animation was incredible. The visuals are more than a ten. There is nothing like this. Nobody in news is doing stop-motion like this. Technically the explanation is impressive. It’s a wonderful thing.”
What the judges said: “Unique and excellent visual journalism. It shows, it teaches, it explains. The translations were well done. The narrative arc was well-paced and the graphics were deftly integrated. NPR has set their own high bar for this type of storytelling and this project shines. Deceptively simple and seamless; it was totally immersive and poetic. It makes you lean forward and back. The experience works thoughtfully across devices and screen sizes. This caliber of storytelling requires great photography, which this delivers.”
