this american life

Check it out: a sneak preview of NPR’s This American Life (TAL) that will now be appearing on TV’s Showtime.

The preview, on, is a short interview that is animated by cartoonist John Kuramoto about school children making cameras out of boxes and how they use them and the 'cameras' influence their behavior on the playground. The short is very interesting and the animation 'feels' like TAL on radio.

As most people, I am very interested in how this particular program is 'illustrated' or conveyed visually. So much of the show is pacing, focussing on storytelling and the listener using their imagination. I wish them luck and if the show continues at this pace I think it will be successful.

You can see other TAL work here.
