Different ways of storytelling

A few years ago I would have spent 90 minutes during the day editing a story. And there are still times when that happens. But days like today I spend more than 90 minutes editing video. It is a different way of storytelling that can be as equally and sometimes even more compelling than a standalone story. And there are times when both story and video work well as a complementary multimedia package. The adage is that for every three minutes of video posted online, we spend about four hours shooting, capturing, editing and moving it online. It certainly seemed that way today.
