Thanks to apps like Meerkat, Twitter-owned Periscope and Snapchat, the media industry is beginning to take vertical video seriously. That’s because vertical video delivers better results than standard video in environments where people tend to hold their devices upright.

Multimedia storytelling continues to evolve as more journalists experiment with the possibilities opened up by new digital tools and techniques.

I recommend three more recent examples that thrust the form in new and compelling directions:

What can we learn from those very different stories?

Complement, don’t repeat.
Integrate media types.
Simplify.
Grab the audience’s attention visually.
Nonlinear does not need to be complicated.

From smartphones to smartwatches, clocks are everywhere these days. But have you ever wondered what life was like before we could measure time? Video essayist Adam Westbrook delves into the story of the clock, and discovers that when we learned to mechanize time, we accidentally mechanized something else.
