"We knew nothing about filming/editing or about getting our message across to an audience. These guys gave us the basics and then encouraged us just give it a crack. They gave us skills, but above all they encouraged us to believe in ourselves and the stories we had to share..."
“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!”
I loved the opportunities for practical learning. I knew NOTHING about this stuff but did not feel overwhelmed. You guys made me feel like a digital story project is a real possibility!
Awesome night, inspiring stuff!
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!
Spine tingling #digitalstorytelling sesh with @natashaakib & Pete...
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.
