According to Colin the site was set up as a website
for the sole purpose of connecting those who need feedback on their multimedia, to professionals willing to share some time and knowledge.
It came off the back of a post on his (excellent) blog Mastering Multimedia where he voiced his disappointment at the quality of the video being submitted to the NPPA Best of Photojournalism Multimedia Contest
The plan is to have onboard as many “expert” volunteers as possible that have solid foundations in video storytelling, audio slide shows or Flash projects. This pool of reviewers will peruse the submitted links of multimedia in the “Story Pool”. If they decide to comment on a story, it will then become public on theFinding the Frame home page where anyone else is free to give added feedback.
The site has already drawn in some great content and some lively debate. Well worth a look and if you are in that game then sign up to help review.
