Digital Storytelling refers to using new digital tools to help ordinary people to tell their own stories
The product is a 2-5 minute film that combines a narrated piece of writing, photographic images and a musical soundtrack. The philosophy behind this type of digital storytelling is one of using technology to enable those without a technical background to produce works that tell a story using moving images and sound.
Digital Storytelling is the modern expression of the ancient art of storytelling. Digital stories derive their power by weaving images, music, narrative and voice together, thereby giving deep dimension and vivid color to characters, situations, experiences and insights.
Let’s examine “voice”
“ A story should be remembered for its soul, not the bells and whistles”. If you don’t have a good or powerful story, script, and storyboard, then there will never be enough decorating that technology can do to cover it up. On the other hand, demonstrating exemplar craftsmanship with mixing the technical elements in artful ways to unfold your story creates compelling, insightful, original and memorable pieces of communication. The richness of a good story can be diluted when technical elements are over used, distracting, or just plain annoying. http://www.digitales.us/evaluating/index.php
