That perseverance can be seen in one of Courtney sound bytes. "Everybody always says when you get these inner city kids down, they'll lay over and you'll beat them by 40. Not us! Everyone will say they're 0-1, they'll fold up camp. They'll be 2-8 by the end of this thing. No, not us," he emphatically tells his players.
Especially with sports, It is important to incorporate different types of sound to set the scene. In this piece, the journalists lead off with a highlight call of a touchdown. It then segways into an interview with Martin and Lindsey about the film, their experiences living in Memphis for nine months during production and the Oscar nomination.
This next story might be one that should be made into a movie and nominated for an Oscar. Comedian John Fugelsang relays the story of his parents' marriage in audio, text and a picture slideshow with Tweet captions on the one year anniversary of his father's death. (Sounds like he took Digital Journalism II!) Fugelsang's parents were both members of the Roman Catholic clergy who fell in love. At the age of 6, Fugelsang saw that in all the pictures of his mother, Peggy, in the 60's, she was in a habit and discovered she used to be a nun. He later found out his father, Jack, was a Franciscan friar.
Since this was such a personal experience for Fugelsang, having him as the only source made the story stronger. Pause was a key part of this story, especially after Fugelsang talks about his father's unconditional love for his mother and how he would do anything to spend a little more time with her. It was evident that Fugelsang was emotional.
