When you click on a photo block, a window pops up with a brief introductory video from each editorial board member. Credits for the package: Film by Jarrard Cole, Editing by Dioni Wise, Design and programming by Mary Katherine Ayers.

One encouragement I’d have is for the online staff to link to the interactive on the Opinion section of the site, and also on all the pages that contain edit board editorials (like this one).
