The week in multimedia

    Since its launch, NewsWorks has been using ample video, photos and sound to tell the stories of the region. Here are four examples that stand out this week.

    1. Not a Complainer: Reporter Elizabeth Fiedler and videographers Kim Paynter and Lindsay Lazarski team up to bring you the story of Gary Keller, a seemingly unstoppable Upper Perkiomen kid who refuses to whine even though he’s living with a rare, and very serious, form of cancer. To round out the package, you’ll find Lazarski’s still photographs.

    2. Kinetic Kensington: Watching Lazarski’s video, you may feel like you’re part of the parade, as quirky local artists and residents get together for a day of artful fun: Bikes disguised as Amish carriages, land sharks, and a whole bunch more stuff that frankly defies words, which is why we have video.

    3. Death of a Punk Rocker:  Visit South Street with reporter Peter Crimmins to hear folks’ memories of Mikey Wild, a trailblazing punk rocker who died last week of lung cancer.

    4. Long time coming: A national Cuban modern dance troupe is visiting America for the first time since the United States imposed an embargo on the island nation. Reporter Crimmins and videographer Paynter provide a healthy sampling of an intriguing dance form.
