Olympic Visual Dictionary
Robb Montgomery starts the next session off by discussing the visual journalism revolution. He presented a movie, one that he filmed and produced himself in under 24 hours, which featured various aspects of Hong Kong.
Al Trivino is the first speaker for this session, who is in London and speaking through a video chat.
He made a new company to teach visual storytelling.
“Information by itself isn’t valuable anymore,” Trivino explains. “There is too much content, too perfectly predictable, but too little time to enjoy it.”
He also explains the difference between macro, micro and nano.
Next, he talks about the Olympic Visual Dictionary, and he talks about mobile apps. To demonstrate, he shows us his phone and plays a video about the Olympic Visual Dictionary.
