Video Graphics - Engaging and Informing

A session at Strata 2012

Thursday 1st March, 2012

10:40am to 11:20am (PST)

Videographics achieve the two most important criteria of the visualizer.

They engage attention and they inform.

I am currently working with the BBC to define a new format – that of the ‘Video Dat Graphic’. Some of these exist online to degrees of success but we are codifying best practice, auditing current activity and can show our work in the market context.

I will discuss how video is an information rich medium – from a survey of data resolution across media and how these videos can compliment the BBC online offering as a whole.

Some subjects to cover will be - storytelling principles – what actually works in 2 minutes - scripting and storyboarding – drafting a plan - timescales, costs and resources - designing for cognition – how video needs to understand how we perceive

I’ll be showing many examples in addition to our work.

This is a high paced session, with lots to look at and an excellent mix of storytelling and information design ideas. There is an excellent balance between theory and practical advice.
