Sharing Digital Stories by Gareth Morlais
Some people decide to make a story about something so personal or sensitive that they'd rather not share it. That's fine of course. For many though, part of the joy of telling their story is in having it heard and seen.
Here are three ways to share...
1. Make sure everyone who makes a story burns a DVD to take home with them. As a souvenir, they could also also make a DVD containing all the stories made by everyone who attended that workshop.
2. It's great if every workshop finishes with a screening where every story made at that workshop is projected onto a huge screen in a darkened room full of the storytellers, their friends and families. This is a fantastic finale to the workshop.
3. Upload your stories onto the web: your own project website, video sharing sites like You Tube and don't forget to send a copy to BBC Wales too. Before publication, have another look at Lisa Jones' good practice section of this set of guides and check that the author and everyone identifiable in their story are happy for it to be on the web. Ask parents or guardians of children and young people too.
However many people you help to make a digital story, good luck, have fun and remember: it's fun to share.
