1. how will you address consents?
Privacy laws in the UK are more relaxed than in other countries like France. Setting laws to one side, ask yourself: if that was me/my child in that story, would I be happy?
2. who will own the copyright of the finished stories and will exhibition licences be explicitly attached?
Seems such a simple question; explore Creative Commons.
3. which media form are you asking people to make?
Here’s one of the ways we modelled the BBC Capture Wales form of the digital story, mainly aimed at trainers: http://www.bbc.co.uk/wales/audiovideo/sites/about/pages/howto.shtml
This is the Center for Digital Storytelling’s Cookbook: http://www.storycenter.org/cookbook.html
Whichever form you encourage participants to make, publish and share the documentation.
4. is sustainability important to you?
