Digital stories combine voiceover narration, images and/or short video, music and sound to create a multimedia narrative. During this three day workshop you will develop your story and create a 3-5 minute video. The process involves writing and recording a script, selecting media, video editing. Instruction and equipment will be provided, though for most of the time you’ll work on your own. This workshop is based on the process developed by the StoryCenter in Berkeley, which has shaped practices in digital storytelling through their work with people and organizations around the world. This workshop is for beginners, but if you have media production experience you will benefit from learning about the storytelling process.

This workshop will take three full days, 9 a.m. – 4 p.m., though for much of that time you will work on your own.

Number of participants: 5-8
Prerequisites: none
Technologies used: Audacity, iMovie, YouTube, Google Drive
