Video highlights from the apps (36-minute version)

This montage provides a sampling of some of the video media in the Fort Vancouver Mobile apps. This app is much more than just a video distribution system, but these videos show the variety of content, from expositional segments to new journalism to those intended to prompt the development of interactive narratives.

Forrest Burger and KBTC

Our longtime supporter and key partner in the Fort Vancouver Mobile project, Forrest Burger, recently accepted the local production manager job at the KBTC public television station in Tacoma. Forrest has had a distinguished journalism career, including working for CNN Tokyo and "60 Minutes" in New York, and we feel very fortunate to have collaborated with him so much on the FVM project. He helped in countless ways and always went above-and-beyond for this project, from providing technical advice and testing gear to the superb work he has performed for FVM behind the camera (as the lead videographer on several FVM videos that are yet to be released, as part of The Village opening module). His new job includes being responsible for the overall production of local programming on KBTC, including creating public affairs and documentary programs. We don't know fully yet what that means for his future involvement with the FVM project, but we do know that Tacoma will be lucky to have him at the helm.
