Wild Horses Of Oregon explores the bureaucracy that captures, feeds and stockpiles horses in captivity.
OPB's Oregon Field Guide set out to explore all sides of an expensive environmental and legislative controversy. The main focus of the investigation was to create a 30-minute documentary. However, properly telling all the stakeholder's stories online posed a challenge.
To best tell all sides equally, I built an eight-part multimedia vertical to tell each aspect of the piece. The structure was built to be non-linear, so the reader could jump around from one story to the next based on what sounded most interesting to them.
My role was to work with the Oregon Field Guide team to find the best media that would work online, help create exclusive online features, and edit and organize all the media elements. Once that was complete, I designed, built, and deployed the site.
