Innovative Interactivity (II): A DIGITAL WATERING HOLE FOR MULTIMEDIA ENTHUSIASTS
What struck me about these shots — stills from a CNN video — is how they made interesting pictures of what could have been simple shots of websites. More generally, the point is that it’s worth looking at a lot of visual material to look for ideas about how to make images more interesting. (Yes, when I’m bored I do watch silly videos, and not all of them are cats.) The one quoting a Daily Show spokesperson has a video in the background. Note also that 2 websites used in the same report (PETA and Alliance for Animals) are taken from different perspectives, adding a little more interest to the video.
