I absolutely loved the course! The programme brought different people with common goals together, providing a creative and inspiring setting to extend our storytelling skills. The process from story canvassing to filming and editing was much more straightforward than I anticipated and I found the whole experience very empowering. Kim and Tania were wonderful facilitators and the ongoing support was greatly appreciated and much needed… Seeing our shorts up on the big screen was also a great bonus to the programme!
I couldn't fault this workshop! It was run by experienced, capable facilitators who made everyone feel comfortable - even those who were nervous about the tech side. We got an excellent grounding in all aspects of making a story for impact and as a result our organisation now has a 'Digital Storytelling Team' of very keen volunteers ready to put it all into practice! Thank you for running such an excellent workshop.
A course where the skills are demonstrated beautifully by teachers as you learn. Adult learning with the true flexibility, support and accessibility that is needed at this time. Second to none content - top quality information and support. All available to me in rural Queensland.
The Stories for Impact course provided a wonderful opportunity to learn how to use mobile technology for the greater good. It stirred my creative juices, excited my want for new ways in which to carry on my work and it added to my skill set dragging me (not too reluctantly) into realising what a great tool this is for storytelling on multiple levels and how it can be used to produce meaningful work that otherwise might never be seen by a wider audience. I am so empowered by the skills I learned in this course.
“I enjoyed seeing the end results of everyone’s work (the videos we all made were excellent) and how practical and interactive the course was. I was most surprised that a total newbie like me could actually come away after 2 days with an actual clip that’s actually half-decent and feel totally inspired to create some more!”
Really enjoyed playing around and experimenting with different equipment and watching other material for inspiration. It’s hard to say what I enjoyed ‘most’ because it was all so so friggen awesome!
I attended a 3-hour workshop with the lovely Natasha and Julia as part of Sydney StartUp Week. Packed in as much as possible in 3 hours and left with loads of storytelling tips using basic equipment (iPhone, cheap microphones, dslrs). Would highly recommend. Thank you.
The Stories for Impact Online Course is $150 AUD. This includes lifetime access to all four modules (FIND, MAKE, EDIT & SHARE), which includes over 50 videos, story templates, checklists and more.
This is a tricky question as it will completely depend on the story you are creating, your current skill level and the amount of time you’re able to commit. However, we recommend spending 4-6 weeks completing the course and at least 2-3 hrs per week (this includes going through the tutorials AND completing practical tasks).
Alternatively, you may choose to jump to a specific section where you need help, such as how to setup an interview or how to think about your audience.
We provide tutorials on all of the following software. You will only need to choose ONE.
Throughout the course you have the opportunity to ask questions and we endeavour to respond within 48 hours. For more involved support, you can book in a consultation session with us to tutor you directly.
