National Film Board of Canada’s “Out My Window,” a 360 degree documentary directed by Katerina Cizek, is no doubt an outstanding example of Multimedia Journalism. With the brilliant uses of photographies, videos, audios and graphics, “Out My Window” explores the human experiences behind the concrete buildings.  The interactive website paints the portraits of 13 ordinary people from all over the world, with each revealing a  360 degree perspective to the person’s life inside and outside the buildings. Each story brings out a theme, such as family and religion, that resonates with the viewers. The groundbreaking method takes storytelling to a different level, for it transfers the viewers to the same place and time with the subjects, hearing and seeing what they see. After browsing through the whole site, I felt like I had just looked out the window on the world.
