The BaltimoreStories.com project was conceived of and is produced
by Thom Lieb and Paula Mozen of Towson
University. The idea was to combine our students' diverse talents
and technical skills in print and video storytelling to create rich
multimedia portraits of Baltimore people and places. We later expanded
that idea to include photojournalism and broadcast journalism.
The site is envisioned as a living magazine that will be updated
with contributions from a wide range of classes and Baltimore residents.
Please feel free to send your comments or suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The initial edition of BaltimoreStories.com was created
by the following team:
Thom Lieb, professor, journalism and New Media, served as producer,
project manager and team leader for students in the Writing for
New Media class.
Paula Mozen, assistant professor, film, served as producer, design
consultant and team leader for students in the Documentary Film
and Video class.
Tenney Mason, director of photography at Patuxent Publishing Co.,
a chain of weekly newspapers that serves a multitude of local communities
in the Baltimore/ Washington corridor, served as team leader for
students in the Photojournalism class.
John Turner, associate professor, radio, served as team leader
for students in the Broadcast Journalism class.
Kelly Janschek designed all aspects of the site and was responsible
for putting content online.
Tufail Ahmed is the current webmaster of the site.
Jeff Lee is a doctoral student of Applied Information Technology
program at Towson University. He desiged a web management system
to make this site dynamic rather than a static HTML pages -- the
content should be saved into database and rendering on the
fly. Furthermore, the new website system should have multiple functions
such as allowing qualified authors to upload their content (audio,
picture, movie or slideshow...) and with an approval feature, etc.
Felipe Quiros was the webmaster of the site from 2003 to 2004
Paula Mozen and John Turner's work on this project was supported
by fellowships from the
Center for Instructional Advancement and Technology at Towson
University. John Perrillo of the center was particularly helpful
in converting video documentaries to streaming RealVideo format.
Richard Ellsberry of the Department of Mass Communication and Communication
Studies provided ongoing technical support on various parts of this
John Spivey, Radio/Audio Labs Coordinator for the Department of
Electronic Media and Film, also provided invaluable assistance.
