Digital storytelling

Digital storytelling, the sound-and-vision version of oral history, is starting to be all the rage at the moment, it seems. A firm putting an archive together in the Coromandel area has set up this website with samples to view. The cost per story is expensive (around $400-500 each, counting in workshops cost) but the system has attracted considerable interest, including at Blockhouse Bay (I have a copy of the result, thanks to Gail Fotheringham).

  1. I've just had a look. Quite an innovative idea. Video equipment I guess is not cheap to purchase. It's a great way of preserving history in another form. Thanks Ice it was really interesting to read.
