Multimedia Storytelling

Multimedia storytelling has the power to provide context and depth to news stories, fundraising drives, marketing campaigns, and personal stories. This hands-on course will provide a comprehensive overview of multimedia storytelling using smartphones and accessible technology. This crucial messaging plays an important role across a diverse range of industries, from journalism, documentary, and filmmaking to marketing and nonprofit administration. Work with your instructor to develop and build an eight-week long project, and gain practical experience in all facets of digital story design and production while workshopping with your classmates. In the first four sessions, learn about the foundations of storytelling and media creation, work on weekly assignments to practice what you learn, and gradually build your final project. The class encourages engaging in constructive discussions and group critique that help you to refine your learning experience. Throughout the course, professional guest speakers join to talk about their real-world experience, share inspiring stories, and answer your questions. Topics include story research, story pitching, production planning, digital photography, digital audio and digital video acquisition, editing, design, and digital publishing.

This course may be used to fulfill the requirements of the Certificate in Journalism and Newswriting and the Certificate in Storytelling: Narrative Tools and Applications.
