Background on training
Until recently, you had to be a movie or news producer to create and tell a story to a wide audience using multi-media. And it cost a bundle! But today, all this can be done simply, cheaply and easily. And this workshop will show you how!
Now, you can TELL STORIES through the power of short, digital movies you create. Learn photography, videography, storytelling and technical/software skills from someone who has taught these skills worldwide.
Showcase a great cause, organization, or business venture. Learn how to give new voice to family memories. Learn to turn your stories into powerful, authentic videos and share with family, friends, the world!

The goal of the training is to help you produce your own compelling videos for professional or personal use

Teaching Iraqi youth leaders
_ About the Trainer." Over the past ten years, I have taught digital story telling to adults and students throughout the world, from Iraq and India, to South Africa and Guatemala. I see how powerful these stories can be and love showing people how to create them for both personal use as well as combining them with other social media tools. I consult with education groups here in the northwest and with education organizations and universities internationally to powerfully connect youth activists globally through exchanges of youth-produced videos and live video conferences. These live, on-line exchanges seek to build cross-cultural understanding and promote positive social change.
