The Art of Digital Storytelling Vancouver Workshop

Tell your digital story with the award-winning team of Lorna Boschman and Sebnem Ozpeta. Together we run through the steps of media creation: developing your script, gathering materials for editing, encouraging constructive feedback from others in the workshop, recording and re-recording your voice-over, refining your story using editing software, and exporting your digital story.

Maximum of 6 students per class so there is time for everyone to complete a short video project, suitable for sharing online.

Next 20 hour course: March 4-5 and 18-19, 2017
Saturday and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m.
Courses held in the heart of East Vancouver. Cost $400

Who joins us for the Art of Digital Storytelling?

You know a little bit about computers and want to make a short video to share on Facebook.

For you, the workshop is about crafting a story and letting the storytelling instructor(s) edit your digital story, under your direction.

You will develop your digital story by reflecting on each version and telling your instructor/editor what you’d like to change.

You are someone who has created media works in the past but you need more practice using editing software.

For you, the workshop is about developing your story as you learn new software.

You will install the free trial version of Adobe Premiere Pro (Mac or PC) or Apple’s Final Cut Pro onto your own computer during the workshop period.

You have been editing for years but have been feeling stuck creatively.

For you, the workshop is about getting feedback on a project while editing on your own system on software you are familiar with.

You are confident technically but want social interact from others in the group. You and the instructor(s) can work together to support more advanced elements within your project.

Before the Workshop

  1. Think about the story you want to tell
  2. Write down any ideas you have for a story, including visuals, sound and titles. Even a short paragraph gives you a place to start
  3. Print your notes (or script) and bring a copy to the workshop
  4. Think about who you are talking to in your voice-over
  5. Locate and copy any images and/or video files you imagine being part of your story
  6. Thinking of making an experimental work, short documentary, music video or book trailer? We’d love to work with you – they are all variations on the theme of storytelling!
