Dyan Ruiz & Joseph Smooke, Priced Out
Dyan and Joseph founded [people. power. media] in 2012, and since our founding, we have always explored the most effective ways to tell each particular story without locking ourselves into any particular medium or approach. Our default is video, but we have always been intrigued by the storytelling power and ability for audiences to connect emotionally with complex issues and analyses when presented with animation rather than live action or infographics. We had been reporting on the housing beat for years, and the constant request we kept hearing was that communities needed something different than what was circulating in the mainstream or indie media about housing. So, we decided to take on the challenge of building content from scratch that would bring an entirely fresh perspective on the issue, to let everyone in on the secrets of how the housing industry really works.
