Abstract

“Rotors” is a visual longform product using the information my team and I gathered in Alaska during our expedition to comprehensively and accurately document a relatively unknown region of the Alaska Range as a resource for the climbing community, as well as create an entertaining and compelling story for the general public to enjoy. Using a rich, thorough and captivating blend of multimedia elements, it succeeds in immersing readers in the experience of climbing in the Alaska Range and adequately captures the location through a feature story, multiple added text excerpts, photography, video, a feature documentary short film, maps and more, creating a product that is a model of the best way to tell stories and document events for the web.
