Multi-Platform StorytellingA rudimentary crash course for filmmakers wanting to understand what digital storytelling is, what makes a good digital story, and how to produce your own. Using case studies from successful digital properties, we will discuss the production process, funding sources, current trends and also technologies available for the indie filmmaker.
This course is recommended as a companion to Short Film Writing, Advanced Script Studio, Producing Dramatic Film, Directing Dramatic Film and all of the Documentary Filmmaking workshops.

Instructor: Laurinda Shaver
Laurinda watched a lot of television as a child. Or so her mother told her. 20 years later as a Digital Producer, she confidently claims it was simply research. In her journey, she discovered her deep love of storytelling; starting in television (yes, there was no internet during her university years) and extended to digital media as soon as it was, well, invented. This puts her at advantage to have the skillset to tell stories both in a linear fashion and in that other fashion too.
