Camera Works: Audio and Video (
IMF protest videojourno short by John Poole.

First, this video has no narrator. The images and sounds Poole caught -- protesters and police speaking to the camera, plus lots of captured scenes -- speak for themselves.

Given that the editing was done on deadline (the piece was up on the Web site before 6 p.m.), the results are downright artful.

Although I heard the "captions on steroids" deal in Dec. 1997 (Note: this story has been updated several times since it's launch in '96 - mainly technology, Real Audio to WMP to Flash).

Even those innovators moved away from Flash slideshows in favor of images and audio in video (esp. until the broadband promise failed to materialize.

Really, what's next?
