The Digital Storytelling Workshop:

The goal of the workshop is to design and produce a 3-5 minute digital story centered around your personal narrative. The workshops are usually held as all day, contiguous day intensives, involving 6-12 participants. Participants are given materials prior to the workshop to assist them in preparation, including suggestions of limits in script duration, number of images, and use of video clips.

The workshop involves four major components:

1. Presentation of Seven Elements of Digital Storytelling

As both a guide to scripting and design, and as a showcase for design examples, each workshop begins with a lecture-demonstration as guidelines to creating a digital story. Outstanding examples that illustrate the elements are presented as well.

2. Group Script Process

As in a creative writing class, we facilitate a review of story ideas or actual scripts as a group process. Both the general approach and specific editorial issues are addressed, and issues of storyboarding and design are touched upon.

3. Hands On Software Tutorials

Participants are taken step by step through the basics of the software(s) used in the process. While we often use two professional softwares, Photoshop, for image manipulation, and Premiere, Final Cut or iMovie for video editing, the process can be done with a large number of alternative tools as well.

4. Production Support and Management

Most of the workshop is spent with participants working on producing their own projects, with their own ambition and pace. CDS staff has trained extensively on the process of assisting users during the various steps of multimedia production. Great attention is given to time management, troubleshooting, and prioritizing the process to assure the participants achieve the goal of a completed project.  Additionally, these workshops will touch on integration of this type of media/exercise within curriculum for teachers and how this type of work increases media literacy not only for teachers but for their students.

Note: cost for onsite workshop for up to 10 people: $5,500.
