Wash. Post's 'On Being' Video Portraits Return

One of the first videojournalism packages we featured on KobreGuide was Jennifer Crandall's "On Being," a Washington Post series of short, snappy on-camera portraits of everyday people, "based on the simple notion that we should get to know each other a little better."

Each Wednesday, you'll find video portraits that take you into the musings, passions and quirks of all sorts of people.
Crandall levels the playing field by shooting all her subjects in a studio against a white backdrop.

After about three dozen installments, however, the project disappeared...

But now it's back... with a spiffy new design.

As we previously noted: "These morsels of real-life anecdotes are best nibbled in small doses, although they can be addictive. Betcha can’t watch just one!"
