We are thrilled to announce that our first feature film, The Long Night, has been named Documentary Project of the Year by Pictures of the Year International.

Created in collaboration with Tim Matsui and the support of the Alexia Foundation, the film takes an unflinching look at the crisis of minors who are coerced into the American sex trade.

In this new installment of H-Town Stories commissioned by Neighborhood Centers Inc., MediaStorm takes an intimate look at two lives that have been transformed by the power of work. Neighborhood Centers provides services to 400,000 Texans every year and MediaStorm hoped to create intimate portraits of just a few of these men and women who benefit from such assistance.

Every year, 100,000-300,000 American children are at risk for commercial sexual exploitation. The Long Night sheds light on the crisis of minors forced and coerced into the American sex trade. Made in collaboration with Tim Matsui, MediaStorm’s first feature length film weaves together the stories of two girls from suburban Seattle, Lisa and Natalie, who are forced into prostitution at just 13 and 15. See the film at: http://mediastorm.com/publication/the-long-night
The Long Night, a feature film by Tim Matsui and MediaStorm, gives voice and meaning to the crisis of minors who are forced and coerced into the American sex trade.

MediaStorm's latest client project follows the story of two women working to create better health for Malawi. Global AIDS Interfaith Alliance (GAIA) takes the medical breakthroughs of the developed world and brings them to ‘The Far End of the Road’ where 1 out of 6 adults is HIV-positive and healthcare can be many hours away.

Founder & Executive Producer of MediaStorm
Introduction
Brian Storm is founder and executive producer of the award-winning multimedia production studio MediaStorm based in Brooklyn, New York.

MediaStorm publishes diverse narratives on the human condition, offers advanced multimedia training seminars and collaborates with a diverse group of clients ranging from international corporations to individual photojournalists and artists. MediaStorm’s stories and interactive applications have received numerous honors, including five Webby Awards, four Emmys, five Online Journalism Awards and the first-ever duPont Award for a Web-based production.

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 he 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 media advisory boards for the Council on Foreign Relations, the W. Eugene Smith Fund, the Eddie Adams Workshop, the Alexia Foundation for World Peace, the Stan Kalish Picture Editing Workshop, University of Missouri’s Pictures of the Year, Foundation Rwanda, Anthropographia, and Brooks Institute's Journalism School. He is a frequent speaker on the subject of multimedia storytelling.

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