Section Information for Fall 2017
Digital Storytelling (DTS) is a nascent field in Folklore Studies. It combines the craft of traditional narrative storytelling with photographs, video, animation, sound, music, text, and a narrative voice to produce multimedia narratives. Because this is a folklore course, DTS will emphasize the art and craft of the storytelling process and traditional storytelling techniques (narrative form, 3-Act Structure, performance) and conventional ethnographic collection techniques. We will consider how stories transform from conventional face-to-face interactions to audio and video presentations. You will work individually and collaboratively to produce your own digital stories (film and podcast).
DTS has a variety of applications, including presentations, video resumes, book trailers, and personal documentaries.
Satisfies Creative Writing.
