California Listens Digital Storytelling

California Listens Digital Storytelling Project

Do you have a story about living or working in Sierra Madre?  This is your opportunity to share your story, learn the basics of the digital storytelling process, and turn your story into a 2 to 4 minute video.

Sierra Madre Public Library invites you be part of a special two-day workshop sponsored by the California State Library.  The California Listens Digital Storytelling Workshop is set for Friday and Saturday May 11-12, 2018 from 9 am to 5 pm at City Hall, located at 232 W. Sierra Madre Blvd. in Sierra Madre.

In the workshop, participants will make a short video on a computer and will learn: how to make a great video story, how to write a narration script and record it, how to prepare a visual treatment for a story, and the basics of video editing in WeVideo.  Powerful and fun! Anyone can contribute regardless of experience or technical level.

The workshop is free, but pre-registration is required.  Those taking part must commit to preparation time, attendance during the entire two days.  To apply, visit: or submit a paper application to the Sierra Madre Public Library.

Collected video stories will be shared at a presentation during the summer and will become part of state and local archives of stories about what it means to be Californian. View collected stories at
