digital storytelling,  instruction,  timeless

Download this new guide to digital storytelling

It’s by the BBC Capture Wales team and we wrote it to coincide with the Digital Storytelling Gathering tour around Wales last month. It’s on the BBC Wales Digital Storytelling website. Hope you find it useful.

Here’s a link to the html menu page on the BBC website. And here’s a link to the pdf download which has a bonus section by Lisa Heledd outlining various new forms of digital storytelling, together with instructions – DS Recipe Cards, kind of. The pdf currently lacks Simon Turner’s fantastic article about recording people’s voices.

Table of Contents:
The ideal venue
Briefing participants
Find the story
Getting the story down on paper
Refining the story
Things to look out for when making a story
Equipment checklist
