Digital Storytellers invites you to the Stories For Impact Workshop which will help you develop and produce captivating stories, through film and digital media, to connect, inspire and spark action amongst your audience. 

This workshop will teach you how to start creating great digital film content using smartphones, tablets and the resources at your disposal. 

We’ll show you how, with the right planning, strategy and training, it’s possible to produce powerful stories for social change using the resources at your disposal, without the need for expensive equipment. 

This workshop will be hands-on. You'll be shooting interviews and cutaways, recording sound, setting up lighting and more. We will take you through:

  • Pre-production: planning, choosing locations, the art of interviewing
  • Production: how to do lighting, sound, shooting and equipment (focusing on how to use smartphones, tablets & DSLRS to create powerful content
  • Looking at the best of the best: We’ll look at inspirational case studies of others who have effectively used smartphones and tablets to create stunning stories
  • All participants will walk away with a copy of the 'Story Canvas' and the 'Production Canvas' to help you plan future stories.
