DIGITAL STORYTELLING WORKSHOPS
As a natural extension of my passion for writing, photography, and my desire to help others find their voice, I have facilitated two-day and four-day Intensive Digital Storytelling Workshops using Final Cut Pro 7 and iMovie with The Center for Digital Storytelling and with Surya Govender at Emily Carr College of Art and Design, Continuing Studies.
We lead students through idea generation, writing, recording, and video production of their own short videos built from still images, voice-track and music.
I'd love to build a team, or work with yours, to create a digital storytelling or other writing workshop to suit the needs of your community. I also create publishing partnerships with media, and create strategies to engage a broader community via storytelling and social media.
A Vimeo channel with some of these facilitated stories can be viewed at: https://vimeo.com/channels/156376 A great example, is this video made in our of the Emily Carr workshops by Joe Hargitt, called "Letters."
In this 2-minute digital story, Joe traces his love of writing to a childhood of letter-writing with an often-absent father.

In "Traces," Sandra explores her yearning for home, belonging and change in the city where she no longer feels at home.
