This installment in the lynda.com Creative Inspirations documentary series features Richard "Koci" Hernandez, a national Emmy® award-winning video and multimedia producer who is at the forefront of the next generation of journalism. Retracing his steps, Koci shares how he began his obsession with photography and his love of visual storytelling with a trip to the Ansel Adams Gallery in Yosemite. Thirty years and three newspapers later, he finds himself teaching multimedia storytelling at the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism. Koci is known for inventing techniques on the fly, often teaching himself new software just moments before completing a project and incorporating fresh ideas with stunning results. Koci readily learns as much from his students and blog readers as he teaches them, and openly shares with us his constant journey of discovery.

In Bonus Features, Koci is interviewed by Graduate School of Journalism colleague Jeremy Rue at the Pacific Film Archive Theatre, University of California, Berkeley.

Introduction

(Music playing.) Richard: Telling a story, for me, is breathing. It doesn't matter how I do it, if it's in motion graphics, if it's a picture, if it's a piece of video--whatever it is.

(Music playing.) The foundation is story and storytelling. That's never going to change. Since they who have been putting pictures on cave walls, it's the story; that's what's most important. (Music playing.) There is a need in me to take pictures.

When I have a camera in my hands, my head and I hope my heart are connecting in a way that says, "Press that button, press that button," and I do, and it feels amazing. (Music playing.) It's the art, for me, of discovery. I love to discover: new things, new places, new people.

It's just that. It's like, what could it be, what could it be? What's around that corner? Oh my gosh, look at that. Oh, look at that! Click. Boom. Move on, and just keep over and over and over and over again. (Music playing.)
