The six days intense multimedia storytelling foundation workshop propose to discover the new world of Digital Storytelling through the creation of your own short web-documentary.

The participants will work in teams of two on their own short form character-driven web-documentary. They will experience how to record sound and interview, use moving and still images and edit a short web documentary. By the end of the intense hands-on workshop each team will have a film produced.
The students then will have the option to join advanced students for the project development of personal projects.

The theory:

  • Introduction of Multimedia Storytelling and Web-Documentaries
  • Why tell stories in new formats?
  • How is it different from traditional media like reportage photography, radio and TV?
  • What is character driven storytelling?
  • What does it mean to build an arc of multiple outlets for the story?

The praxis:

  • Story preparation – Research. “What is a good story and how do you tell it?”
  • Audio – How to record high quality audio with different types of microphones.
  • Interview – How to approach subjects in order to end up with strongest and most personal stories
  • Video – All things tech. Understanding how cameras work and how to use them under different circumstances.
  • Story boarding – Plots and storylines. This is where the magic happens!
  • Editing – Workflows and editing. Final Cut Pro X or Premiere Pro.
