May 30: Tell Your Story

A one-day, hands-on digital storytelling workshop

This workshop will be held in the Student Multimedia Design Center on the lower level of the Morris Library.

Workshop Description

In this one-day intensive workshop, you will go through the steps of producing a short-form digital story—from idea to storyboarding, from shooting to editing, and finally to presenting. You’ll learn what equipment and software you need and what steps are involved in producing a simple digital story. After this workshop, you’ll leave with an understanding of how to better plan, produce, and evaluate media assignments more effectively.

There are no pre-requisites for this workshop.  It is suitable for novices as well as those who have explored digital storytelling in the past and would like to work with the most recent software.
