Three humbling stories from Eric Maierson, Michael Moran & Elodie Mailliet Storm about the evolution of MediaStorm in L'Oeil de la Photographie.

http://www.loeildelaphotographie.com/photo-daily-news/mediastorm-celebrates-10-years/
Why celebrate 10 years of MediaStorm? Out of gratitude. 10 years ago I was a hundred miles away from this world and its technology. For me photography was always the natural child of paper and I wasn’t far from considering a screen a tool of the devil. I met Brian Storm through Elodie Maillet who was later to become his wife.

Founder & Executive Producer of MediaStorm
Introduction

Brian Storm is founder and executive producer of MediaStorm.


MediaStorm publishes diverse narratives, offers advanced training seminars and collaborates with a diverse group of clients. MediaStorm’s stories and interactive applications have received numerous honors, including two duPont Awards, four Emmys, and five Online Journalism Awards.


Prior to launching MediaStorm in 2005, Storm spent two years as vice president of News, Multimedia & Assignment Services for Corbis, a digital media agency founded and owned by Bill Gates. Storm led Corbis' global strategy for the news, sports, entertainment and historical collections and directed the representation of world-class photographers for assignment work with a focus on creating in-depth multimedia products.


From 1995 to 2002, Storm was the first director of multimedia at MSNBC.com, a joint venture of Microsoft and NBC News, where he was responsible for the audio, photography and video elements of the site. In October of 1998, he created MSNBC's The Week in Pictures to showcase visual journalism in new media, a forerunner of the photography galleries that have become a standard offering of all major content sites today.


Storm received his master's degree in photojournalism in 1995 from the University of Missouri School of Journalism where he ran the New Media Lab and taught Electronic Photojournalism. In 1994, he launched the first version of MediaStorm as an interactive CD-ROM production company.


Storm serves on the Advisory Board for the W. Eugene Smith Fund, the Eddie Adams Workshop, the Alexia Foundation for World Peace, the Stan Kalish Picture Editing Workshop, Pictures of the Year and LOOK3. He is a frequent speaker on the subject of storytelling.


Born in Minnesota, he has endured the family curse of being a lifelong fan of the Minnesota Vikings. He lives in Menlo Park, CA with his wife Elodie and their children Eva and Jasper. He can be reached via brian@mediastorm.com.
