Good housekeeping in Digital Storytelling

File and folder housekeeping is really important when it comes to building, re-building and archiving your Digital Story movie-file and associated assets. It’s worth emphasising this. Devise a way of working whereby all the components of the Digital Story fit in named sub-folders of one master folder which has the storyteller’s full name on it. When you’re helping someone to make their Digital Story, ask them to make sure that none of their images, sounds, videos or project files are anywhere other than in their named folder or in its sub-folders.

When you follow this simple guideline, it should be possible to burn that folder onto a disc and re-build the entire story on a different computer.
