Breaking Down NYT’s Latest Immersive Offering ‘The Jockey’

Another great behind-the-presses feature from journalism.co.uk technology editor Sarah Marshall. She talked to Pulitzer Prize winning reporter Barry Bearak and New York Times associate managing editor Steve Duenes about “The Jokey,” the paper’s race-track themed follow-up to “Snowfall.”

Former NYT sports editor Joe Sexton hatched the idea of a profile piece of 50,000+ races jockey Russell Baze. It took a long time to come together, which was fortuitous, because when Baze finally said yes, “Snowfall” had just run and generated major traction:

Videographer and photographer Chang Lee was brought in and, along with graphics editor Xaquín GV, set up a complicated shoot, involving Baze wearing a miniature Pivothead camera on his goggles to provide point-of-view video footage, and 15 GoPro cameras around the track to capture the jockey racing…

A New York Times In The Digital World

mbcircus4.jpgThree members of The New York Times‘ digital newsroom joined the Circus today, giving a dynamic presentation about some of the interesting visual and interactive items they are using today.

Fiona Spruill, the editor of the Times‘ Web newsroom, kicked off the panel with a look at some of the interactive tools the paper’s site is using to generate feedback from readers. Of course, the Times allows commenting on breaking news stories and highlights the best comments on its homepage, but they’ve been trying to “involve our readers in other ways and getting them to think of interactivity more broadly,” Spruill said.

To that end, they have launched tools like one that asks readers to type in a single word to describe their mood about the economy. The way those words are visually represented — bigger or smaller — shows Web visitors how their fellow readers are feeling.

Multimedia editor Andrew DeVigal and graphics director Steve Duenes also highlighted the latest interactive items on the Times‘ site, including the new Lens photo blog and the “One in 8 Million” weekly photo and audio feature.

“We are interested in innovation, experimentation and developing new visual forums,” Duenes said of the graphics desk. “We are surprising readers in a good way with the forums we create.”

However, from the quality and high production level of the interactive and visual tools used by the Times it was obvious that a lot of time and money went into their production. One Circus attendee asked the panel if it was possible to do the same with a smaller budget.

“Graphics are not beyond the reach of smaller staffs,” Duenes said.
