Brookline Interactive Group and The Makery partner to offer a three-session class on the art of digital storytelling. Write and record a video, using scanned images, video, and narration to create simple, yet deeply connective, multimedia stories to cherish and share.
Storytelling is poetry-in-motion, our common cultural currency, and a framework for self-identity. Brookline Interactive Group and The Makery are partnering to offer a three-session class in which you will write a 150-300 word story and use scanned images, video, and narration to create simple, yet deeply connective, multimedia stories of your own.
Sessions will include development of writing skills for transmedia projects, feedback during story circles, and cultivating basic audio, photography, and video production techniques to complete a short two-minute video that you will be able to share online, via social media, and via DVDs with family, friends or colleagues.
In addition to creating a piece of art, this workshop provides an opportunity to create a video gift for someone who has inspired you in your life. These stories are personal-narrative focused, but some participants may also choose to share their videos on their website as part of their artist statement.
Please note this three-session class meets on the following dates and times:
May 1st, 6:00-8:00pm at the Makery
May 8th, 6:00-8:00pm at the Makery
May 15th, 6:00-9:00 at Brookline Interactive Group
BIG will also be open in the afternoon on Saturday, May 19th for participants to come in and finish their projects if needed.
There is one scholarship available for this program. Please contact Erin at if you would like to request this scholarship.
