Our First Loves: True Multimedia Confessions

March 16th, 2009

Twelve Medill undergraduates learning about interactive design were challenged to make a multimedia storytelling Website about something they felt passionately about. To my surprise and that of my co-instructor, Susan Mango Curtis, the subject they felt passionately about was… love.

The students used audio, video, photography and animation to tell stories of peoples’ first loves. Our First Loves is filled with stories like someone’s love of John Travolta, Spaghetti or ‘the boy next door.’ Users of the site are encouraged to rate each story (‘crinkle my nose,’ ‘want to cry’ or ‘want to create an e-dating profile’) and to tell their own stories.
