How much does the course cost? 

The total course value is $1,950 AUD per organisation, including the face-to-face workshops, equipment and editing software, access to the Online Portal and 1-1 consultation with Digital Storytellers.

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, in addition to the 2 x full-day face-to-face workshops we recommend dedicating at-least 2 additional full days of time outside of the workshop to work on refining your story idea, filming and polishing your video.

After that, it’s up to you how many stories you create going forward!

What equipment and software will I receive? 


  • RODE Smartlav approx value $80 AUD
  • RODE Smartlav extension cable value $25 AUD
  • Mini Tripod $50 AUD


  • Kinemaster (smartphones and tablets) value $65 AUD
  • OR
  • Filmora Wondershare (computer/laptop) value $100 AUD

How many of my team members can participate? 

Each enterprise is welcome to bring up to 3 members to participate in the program. We recommend this to be a combination of core team members, who know your story deeply, but also involving other team members who may be more interested in participating in 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
