Storytelling is a primitive and ancient tradition, yet can inspire as well as create soulful images. This is an invitation to explore one’s life from a new lens. Storytelling in the digital age has more capacity to actualize your imaginative potential and allow yourself room for creative expression.
The purpose of this group is to open up a creative space for storytelling through digital media. You will identify a life experience that you would like to develop into a Digital Story Project, using your own digital media, sound recordings and/or narrative. Or you can develop your own movie or film based project by capturing your own video drama, music, poetry, spoken word, and story or artwork onto a digital format. In this 9 week group you will explore your media and develop a PROJECT idea through brainstorming with other participants. You will then organize, gather additional recordings and edit your media into a 3-5min PROJECT that you can share with others. We will assist you in finding appropriate outlets for social media, such as: YouTube, Vimeo, FaceBook, or Instagram, as long as copyright is not infringed upon. Or to a more private platform like Planet Memorial or Drop Box.
This group is open to adults (18+ to senior), who have some experience and little resistance to the use of media, apps and/or applications. If you have a trove of media (slides, stills, documents, audio recordings and/or videos) that you have been wanting to do something with but need a safe, creative environment in which to make a meaningful PROJECT, this group will help you get organized and focused on your idea. If you are an artist, performer, or musician and have footage that needs your attention, or if you want to make a tribute to a friend, or family member, in a supportive environment, this group is for you. The Digital Story Project could also be beneficial for a small group of friends or family members who want to work on the same project.
If you need help with ideas or brainstorming, we are trained in coaching and nurturing creative potential. Also, if you don’t have experience editing and don’t want to invest in an editing system, we can help you find free apps to use in this group, on your iPhone, android, or tablet. If you have experience with editing, we can help with trouble shooting some technical aspects of certain systems. We can also recommend less expensive software on either a Mac or PC.
