Washington Post - The Preparers

This is a really cool multimedia piece from the Washington Post that paints the picture of setting up for the inauguration in January. It actually received an honorable mention in the White House News Photographers Association contest recently.

It takes a collage of photos an mini video animations to create an interactive panorama that allows one to pan the front of the Capitol building and surrounding area. Among the mini videos are a military band playing at the base of the building, while construction workers build the stands for the ceremony. Larger videos are interspersed throughout the panorama with features about different aspects of preparing, from the VIP chauffeurs to constructing the parade floats.

This piece is very unique because it finds a creative way to package video and pictures, while making it interactive and user-friendly.
