SUMMARY

Beset by devastating floods, increased terror attacks, and political instability, Pakistan’s precarious state is a matter of global concern. “Crisis Guide: Pakistan,” the Council on Foreign Relations’ (CFR) interactive multimedia feature, examines the roots of the country’s challenges: an increasing number of terrorist groups; a growing nuclear arsenal that could become vulnerable to these groups; a long-standing rivalry with India and troubled border with conflict-ridden Afghanistan; and the ongoing power struggle between a strong military and a weak civilian government. The guide draws on expert analysis to demonstrate what these problems mean for the region and the world, and to explore potential directions for the country.

ABOUT

Through winter and spring of 2010, I worked with MediaStorm to create a cinematic narrative to lead the in-depth and interactive Crisis Guide. As producer, I researched film and photo archives for content to build the visual sequence, I cut interviews, and edited the visual sequence based off a transcript provided by CFR. 

Due to the sensitive subject matter, the on-going war in Afghanistan, and other political considerations, the transcript underwent multiple revisions and a changing cast of expert interviews.

When the final cut was done, the interactive was nominated for a National Emmy Award for News and Documentary, Overseas Press Club Award, and Online Journalism Award.
