  • Vice primes ‘Mental Health’ guide for global launch

    In keeping with its continued push to reach audiences at home and abroad, Vice on Monday launched a multi-part reporting project simultaneously in several different languages.

    The Vice Guide to Mental Health,” a weeklong project devoted to exploring issues related to mental illness, went live today in six languages — including English, Spanish, French and Portuguese — and in 15 international territories.

    The project represents Vice Media’s largest simultaneously published international editorial effort to date, said Alex Miller, the company’s global head of content. It comes on the heels of a similar initiative, undertaken at the end of last year, to publish a special project on the conditions in Guantanamo Bay in multiple languages within the same week.

    Miller says Vice Media is striving for more of its content to be released internationally because readers from different countries are more interconnected than ever. Read more

  • The New York Times dabbles in virtual reality

    The New York Times Co. | Wired

    On Monday, The New York Times offered a view of a virtual reality experiment, according to a press release from The New York Times Co. The virtual reality film, “Walking New York,” focuses on the artist who created the art for the most recent cover of The New York Times Magazine.

    The virtual reality film, titled “Walking New York,” takes viewers through the making of the Magazine’s cover, for which JR took a photo of a recent immigrant to New York and pasted a 150-foot-tall version of the portrait on the Flatiron Plaza in Manhattan. The final cover photograph is a shot of the portrait taken from a helicopter above the city. The film, narrated by JR, lets viewers experience every aspect of the process, from the initial photo shoot on the street, to the studio work, to the pasting, to the helicopter ride.

A. Brohmann Roth

Herald-Journal / Herald American

Club President: 1975

A true newspaperman of the old school, even after Brohmann Roth became an assistant city editor and later a columnist, at heart he never forgot that he was first and foremost a reporter. He also never forgot his roots in Syracuse.
