Workshops /// Video Storytelling for Social Change
By popular demand, we will be teaching a one-day workshop on Video Storytelling for Social Change at the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University this spring!
Video is everywhere, but effective storytelling is rare. How can people working on social change issues use video stories to connect to a target audience on an emotional level? How can video stories move people to awareness, to understanding, to action? This interactive workshop will focus on concepts and strategies for crafting videos that convey messages of social change through authentic, character-driven stories.
Workshop attendees will be exposed to cutting-edge work and engage in critical discussions about what makes an effective video story. Attendees will have the opportunity to workshop story ideas and come away with their own storytelling strategy.
This workshop is open to anyone interested in learning about how to tell powerful video stories. All levels and backgrounds are welcome.
Saturday, March 14 – 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
