Center for Digital + Once Upon A Time
This website, really just puts it out there, “Listen deeply, Tell Stories”
(Still I feel like I’m reading a tagline for Hallmark Movie Channel)
This is how they define their terms, succinct and apt-
digital story (dig·i·tal sto·ry)
A short, first-person video-narrative created by combining recorded voice, still and moving images, and music or other sounds.
digital storyteller (dig·i·tal sto·ry·tell·er)
Anyone who has a desire to document life experience, ideas, or feelings through the use of story and digital media. Usually someone who has little to no prior experience in the realm of video production but can spend a few days participating in a workshop, exploring and sharing a story with creative, and technical assistance from compassionate, and talented technically skilled CDS staff.
I like how they throw in “compassionate” when describing themselves…are they all compassionate? What makes them compassionate? Why do they have to be compassionate? Perhaps because they are coming into a community to “help them speak”, I’d rather just hear them say that, than compassionate-that word in this capacity for me has a condescending undertone-but that could just be me!
