This course builds upon the work in Visual Storytelling I to explore theories and techniques of narration for time-based and digital media. We will study stories that successfully integrate image and sound, and explore linear and nonlinear storytelling techniques that can be applied across media. We go beyond photography -- the focus of Visual Storytelling I -- by using digital tools to introduce motion and to experiment with recording music, narration, interviews, ambient sounds, and sound effects. Another important component of our work will be to look at ways to make the digital workflow more efficient as we organize, edit and produce creative image sequences with cinematic transitions into digital slide shows with audio. All projects will be uploaded for viewing on the web. Students must be familiar with using digital cameras; have access to a digital recorder, microphone and headphones; and have a working knowledge of image editing software. We will be using Photoshop, Lightroom and Soundslides.
