California Listens Digital Storytelling

California Listens Digital Storytelling Project

Sierra Madre Public Library invited patrons to be part of a special two-day workshop sponsored by the California State Library. The California Listens Digital Storytelling Workshop was held in May 2018.

In the workshop, participants made a short video on a computer and learned 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. 

Collected video stories were shared at a presentation in September 2018 at the Library and have become part of state and local archives of stories about what it means to be Californian.
