Being a part of the Maine Media Workshops means that I get to watch tons of presentations of work each week including lectures by the faculty and on Friday nights, work from the students for that week. I’ve seen lots of work and my favorite of the summer has been the work produced by the Platypus Workshops, led by Dirck Halstead and P.F. Bentley.

The Platypus program is designed for journalists who seek to learn the art and science of using video to tell a story. Here are three of the projects they produced while here. They are short but awesome!
