Q: What are the challenges and rewards of telling multimedia stories in West Virginia?
A: West Virginia is a developing state in terms of economics and technology. One of the main challenges of multimedia storytelling in the state is the lack of technology- wifi, cell phone service, or otherwise. The main reward for me is that even though economic development is advancing rapidly the state still has small town communities with rich stories and charming small businesses.
