Digital storytelling is a multimedia storytelling process that combines photography, music, and spoken word to capture one’s lived experiences and increase understanding of these experiences. Although digital storytelling has strong roots in education, community engagement, and participatory research. Your goal in this assignment is to work with the senior participant to create a digital story for the senior using a digital storytelling tool you prefer. There are different ways and several steps for digital storytelling making and sharing. The common steps usually include: Develop Ideas, Plan, Outline/script, Storyboard, Film and Record, Finalize, Publish and Share, and Evaluate.
Step 1: Develop Ideas. After your life history interview with the senior, you need to develop some ideas about digital storytelling. These questions may be helpful: what purpose do you have for the digital story? What is the title of the story? What do you want to present through the story? What makes the story unique? What impact might the story have on other people? How to present the story through digital technologies? What digital storytelling software do you want to use to present the story? Who will tell the story? Who is your audience? What challenges and difficulties might you meet and what strategies you and your interviewee will be used to solve those challenges?
Step 2: Plan. Review back your digital story ideas you have had about, develop a plan for the digital storytelling assignment.Some helpful tips might be:
- Set goals for your planning process. These goals help to track your progress and provide a snapshot of the assignment from start to finish. Your goals can include items like finishing an outline or finding a tool or resource. Simple goals will help keep this project manageable. Set goals that connect with your storytelling process but remember – the main goal is to share the story of the senior you interviewed.
- Timeline: you may need to review all of the steps first and then set a timeline for each step of the digital storytelling process; create check-in days to track your progress; record your successes and challenges;
- Resources: think about what challenges and resources you will need to complete the digital story such as software, videos, images you will use for the digital story.
Step 3: Outline/script. The outline/script for a digital story is a key part of the process. Having a well throughout, written or drawn outline help reach goals related to time and purpose. Then, write a script for the story, which the backbone of the digital story, and that you or the storyteller read and record to form the main audio element of your story. You are encouraged to develop the outline/script with your storyteller together so that you and the interviewee are comfortable with the script and can create a great product. To create a four to five minutes video you will need a script of roughly 500-600 words. More tips could be found about wring a script. When you are writing the story remember that people will be hearing your voice-over not reading the script. Write your story as you would speak it. Practice reading your script when you write to ensure that the language you choose is effective when it is read aloud.
Step 4:Storyboard. Story boarding refers to a way of planning for all the things that will appear in the digital story, such as music, pictures, words, text, photos, and video. Storyboards help storytellers picture the entire story from start to finish. Storyboards are created in the order of things that happened and help to show what things will appear in the video, and when. They often inspire new ideas for organization or visual effects, show gaps, and help improve the video’s quality. Think about the place where you will be filming or recording and any challenges you may need to address (e.g., lighting, noise, background).Creating a storyboard can be as simple as sketching out your plans on paper. If you prefer to use your computer, Microsoft Word or PowerPoint are other options, along with many software programs or apps for the more advanced developer.
Step 5: Film and Record. Digital stories can have different visual and audio options, such as photos, video clips, text on the screen, voices, or a video of the storyteller. These things add interest to a story and help give attention to certain things. Visual parts include taking photos and videos, scanning old photos or drawings, and collecting images and materials from other locations. Audio parts include recording and editing voices and recording or finding music or sound effects.Know the limits and abilities of your video tools so you can plan properly in the storyboarding phase. If you want to film yourself, or a storyteller, or a storyteller and an interviewer together, you’ll need some tools, including a way to record video and audio (e.g., video camera with microphones). You can certainly use a smart phone or tablet, but a video camera and microphones usually result in better quality. You should also be aware of copyright rules if you are planning to include photos, music, or videos you’ve found on the web as many of these items may be protected by copyright.
Step 6: Edit and Finalize. The editing phase is where the planning and recording come together. This is where you combine visual and audio parts to create a final product. There are many digital tools available to make and share stories; it is not limited to any particular technology.
Step 7: Publish and Share: Once your video is done, you need to create a home for it. Video files are very large, often too large to share via email. Optimally the home will be online, such as a personal website or blog, social media pages, or a video-specific hosting tool such as YouTube, Vimeo, or Wistia. It is useful to create a home base for the video and to share links with people to view it. You can discuss with your storyteller whether to publish it or where to store it. Please submit a share link or your product to the assigned folder for this assignment so that I can view your final product. You will present the digital story you made in the class of November 28th, 2019.
Step 8: Evaluate. While you are evaluating your story, you may find it helpful to ask yourself these questions:Is the purpose of your story clearly presented?Does your story flow?How do you use images, rather than words, to tell your story? Are there any English errors in your story?
