It’s ironic that it’s called storytelling because good story tellers don’t tell stories, they show you what they mean through the best chosen imagry (using both images and words).
Digital Storytelling is much as it says on the tin: a story, told using digital tools.
Webapps, smartphone devices, iPhone/iPad apps, digital cameras, microphones.
I facilitate for groups. I have equipment for use, I can help you choose the apps and medium for you to best express your story.
We tell stories for all kinds of reasons.
The shape of the reason has to do with the what, where, why, who, and when.
Storytelling and narrative skills is the stuff of basics in the digital age.
Through exercises and creating stories I help you learn visual communication skills.
For business (explain user journeys to investors, communicate the feeling of your business to your customers)
For tech professionals and developers (Use Scrum? Tell better stories as a Product Owner and get better results for your team as a Scrum Master)
For families (turn your tablet / iPhone back into a social object; have a better record of your time together)
For young people (get ahead in the job market with visual storytelling skills)
Many times we think, these are user-friendly, I can do it myself, I don’t need a teacher or to pay for a class. But do we ever really get around to it? My job is to hold the space and answer questions you don’t know you have.
I have 3 years experience as a freelance digital media producer. I’m studying a PhD in digital storytelling and interactive, visual communication at Goldsmiths.
