Migrahack at NAHJ: A Workshop on Data Animation

Experience a taste of Migrahack at the National Association for Hispanic Journalists conference in San Antonio.

When: Saturday, August 9, 2014, 10:45 a.m.-12:45 p.m.

Where: Room 103A, Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, 200 E. Market St., San Antonio, TX.

Data animation combines video with illustrations and numbers, allowing you to create an engaging, powerful and stylish story. This hands-on workshop will teach you how to transform your data into a clear and compelling animated video that will help your audience understand the most relevant facts of your story. No previous experience in data animation is required for this workshop. Space is limited to the first 25 participants who come to the workshop.

Trainer Wilson Liévano is a multimedia coordinator for Wall Street Journal Americas with extensive experience in print, multimedia and web portal editorial management in English and Spanish. As a 2013 John S. Knight Fellow at Stanford University, he developed Animated Press, a news animation studio and has produced animations featured in The Guardian, Al-Jazeera and WSJ.

Data animation has become a popular tool at Migrahack, the immigration data hackathons organized by IJJ. Several projects created during Mexico Migrahack were produced by participants who spent a few hours with Wilson during a training day that was part of the hackathon weekend. Check out their work:
