When pictures are put in motion, things get even more impactful. Its ability to hit the heart as well as the head is what I love about video. Frame by frame video takes you on a journey through storyland.
I work as a freelance video editor, editing videos and making video animations for NGO’s, media and the creative industry, like War Child, RNW Media, Perspectief, RNTC, Utrecht University and others.
Story first, medium later. That’s my philosophy when working on web-based stories. Online storytelling allows for true engagement. Find out which medium works best for your story and start building a multimedia longscroll, an interactive photo series, a photo and audio slideshow, or an interactive storymap.
Interactive/multimedia longread ‘Denish’
Project info: This impressive life story is told by Dennis, former child soldier from Uganda. The kind of story you find in an evil children’s book. Non-fiction, that is.
This multimedia production has been made in close cooperation with War Child Holland. This Dutch NGO provides psychosocial support to children affected by armed conflict. Denish has been a child soldier in the civil war in Northern Uganda. He was forced to join the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) in their fight for control over the Northern part of the African country.
Denish’ interview was done February 2017. In 2017 War Child Holland closed the programme in Uganda after being active in the country for 12 years.
