People have told stories since the dawn of time, and are able to do so in many more ways now than ever before. In this 4-session workshop, participants will learn how to craft their own digital story — a brief, 3-5 minute personal narrative in the form of a video — and gain proficiency in some of video editing tools to do so. We will draft our stories, provide feedback to one another, and learn how to craft a digital story that can be shared with family, friends, and the community. 

Session 1: An Introduction to Digital Storytelling

We begin our journey by exploring examples of digital stories to see how creators blend images, video clips, and their own voices to effectively express themselves and use technology to enhance their message. 

Session 2: Making the Most of Our Media

For this session, we will bring digitized media such as family photos or video clips from our smartphones, and learn the basics of putting these items into a timeline using a video editing tool such as iMovie, Windows’ Photos, or WeVideo.

Session 3: Strategies for Bringing Stories to Life

As we move deeper into the storytelling process, we will share drafts of our stories to gain feedback and consider advanced video editing techniques that can bring our stories to life on screen. 

Session 4: Celebrating and Sharing Our Stories

Finally, we gather to share our stories and celebrate our work. We will also consider ways to share our stories with a wider audience through YouTube and social media. 

Our programs are open to everyone. No library card is needed to register or attend.
