How much time will I need to commit? 

This is a tricky question as it will completely depend on the story you are creating and your current skill level. However, the following is an estimate of how your time will be spent.

Week  Lesson  Task  Time commitment
(excluding webinars)
1 Find Your Story  Story Canvas              approx. 2-3 hours 
2 Make Your Story Practice filming techniques approx. 2-3 hours

When will the weekly webinars be held? 

We’ll run a vote  to finalise a time that is suitable to the majority of participants.

What equipment and software do I need to participate? 


  • TO FILM:  A smartphone/tablet with a camera, or a DSLR/digital camera
  • TO EDIT: A smartphone OR tablet OR laptop


  • Kinemaster (smartphones and tablets)
  • Filmora Wondershare (computer/laptop)

*Note – this software will be provided to you FREE by First Australians Capital

How many of my team members can participate? 

We recommend that you nominate at least two team members to participate in the program. We recommend this to be a combination of those who have the authority to lead your digital story, but also involving other team members who may be more interested in learning the “tech” side of things (e.g. filming, and editing). They should also be able to commit the time allocated (see above). You could also consider volunteers, interns or student placements, or others particularly interested in digital media, who might get value out of participating in the course and learning the skills.

What support will I get? 

As well as the weekly check-in webinars, you’ll also be supported by your FAC Business Mentors, to complete your Virtual Tours/Digital Stories and will be available to ideate, troubleshoot and guide you. In addition to this, you or your business members will be welcome to have 1-on-1 consultations with Digital Storytellers throughout the program.
