Digital Storytelling Bwp Sagrado

  1. 1. Digital Storytelling with Movie Maker 2 Luis Col ón BWP Tech Liaison Instructional Technology Specialist
  2. 2. Digital Storytelling Digital storytelling is the practice of combining narration with digital content, including images, sound, and video, to create a short movie, typically with a strong emotional component. Luis Colón 06/02/09
  3. 3. Constructing a narration and communicating it effectively require the storyteller to think carefully about the topic and consider the audience’s perspective. Luis Colón 06/02/09
  4. 4. Elements <ul><li>A Point of View </li></ul><ul><li>A Dramatic Question </li></ul><ul><li>Emotional Content </li></ul><ul><li>The Gift of Your Voice </li></ul><ul><li>The Power of the Soundtrack </li></ul><ul><li>Economy </li></ul><ul><li>Pacing </li></ul>Luis Colón 06/02/09
  5. 5. A Point of View <ul><li>All stories are told to make a point. </li></ul><ul><li>You, as the author, need to figure out what you intend the viewer to “get.” What message are you trying to convey? In other words, what is the theme? </li></ul><ul><li>Not just a recitation of facts. Direct the point of the story to your audience. </li></ul>Luis Colón 06/02/09
  6. 6. A Dramatic Question <ul><li>A good story has a “hook” that will hold the attention of the audience until the story is over. </li></ul><ul><li>Capture the audience’s attention at the beginning and hold it throughout the story. </li></ul>Luis Colón 06/02/09
  7. 7. Emotional Content <ul><li>A story that deals with our emotions, such as loss, love, loneliness, courage, acceptance, rejection, hardship, etc. will help the audience maintain their attention. </li></ul><ul><li>Achieved through the images, effects, music and tone of voice. </li></ul>Luis Colón 06/02/09
  8. 8. Your Voice <ul><li>The way you use your voice can impact the story you tell. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Tone of Voice: Slow, Fast, Loud, Soft </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The tone of the storyteller’s voice provides the drama and sets the mood, while engaging the reader. It draws the reader into the plot development through the use of story elements. </li></ul><ul><li>Caution: You don’t want your final project to sound like you are reading your paper. Practice! </li></ul><ul><li>Tone of voice is very powerful in a story. Make sure to practice your script. </li></ul>Luis Colón 06/02/09
  9. 9. Soundtrack <ul><li>Music sets the mood. </li></ul><ul><li>The goal is to match the music to the story. </li></ul><ul><li>Instrumental music, without words, works the best to create an appropriate mood. </li></ul><ul><li>The focus should be the narration and the music should support and enhance the storytelling. </li></ul><ul><li>Use only copyright-free music! </li></ul><ul><li>Music and sound effects can set the right mood of the story, but can also be a distraction. </li></ul>Luis Colón 06/02/09
  10. 10. Economy <ul><li>Use the least amount of images required to tell the story. </li></ul><ul><li>Your selection of pictures and drawings should illustrate the theme without becoming a distraction. </li></ul><ul><li>Too many images tend to confuse the audience. </li></ul><ul><li>Not every picture and sound effect you find about your story needs to be in the final cut. </li></ul>Luis Colón 06/02/09
  11. 11. Pacing <ul><li>Changing the pace of the story can be very effective. The narrative can have pauses, the music can change tempo, and the images can be set to enter at different rates of speed. </li></ul><ul><li>Changing pace allows the audience to concentrate, think, and maintain interest. </li></ul><ul><li>Keep the story moving. Use music tempo, speech rate, image duration and panning and zooming to help establish pace. </li></ul>Luis Colón 06/02/09
  12. 12. Story Map <ul><li>A Story Map is a very powerful part of any story. This guides the creator to focus on the elements of the story, the beginning, the middle, and the end. </li></ul>Luis Colón 06/02/09
  13. 13. Story Map <ul><li>Beginning -Info of the characters, the main characters call to adventure, the quest of the story is described, what breaks the daily routine. </li></ul><ul><li>Middle – What’s the conflict or problem of the story, why does this conflict need to be resolved, and finally how is it resolved. </li></ul><ul><li>End – After the story’s problem is solved what is the closure to the story. What is learned from the conflict? Is the end necessarily “They lived happily ever after”? </li></ul>Luis Colón 06/02/09

Saving Your Movie <ul><li>To make your creation so that others can view it as well, you need to save it as a video file, a process called rendering. </li></ul><ul><li>Rendering takes all the clips, images, sound files, transitions, etc, and creates a single video file that, depending upon the settings you choose. </li></ul><ul><li>You can play on your computer, export to DV tape, burn to a cd, email to a friend, etc. </li></ul>Luis Colón 06/02/09
