Bristol stories is a collaboration between the Watershed and Bristol Museums to develop digital content for the new Museum of Bristol, due to open in 2009. Bristol Stories is based on the blueprint devised by Joe Lambert at the Centre for Digital Storytelling in California. The process enables people to ‘use digital media to tell meaningful stories from their life’.
I recently took part in a four day course to learn how to create stories based around the theme of travel, and enable the participants to facilitate Digital Storytelling workshops themselves (something I hope to do). My film ‘space boy’ uses photographs from my childhood, some sounds and images (copyright free) and my own recorded narrative.
The image above (yes, it’s me) is from the film which can be seen here: Space Boy
