It’s rather faint in this photo but the three dots that form a triangle right over the capital are Venus, Jupiter, Mercury. Go outside and look to the west. It’s beautiful!

From L to R - Gloria Kirk, Stan Squirewell, Schwanda Roundtree, Michael Platt. Squirewell invited me to tag along with him for an artist talk at the #PhillipsCollection about contemporary photography. Gloria, Schwanda, and Platt were on the panel. The reception was great too. #GloriaKirk shared some of her works with me on her iPad, which has encouraged me to approach family archiving with new direction. The #wisdom in that room was #priceless from artists who have been at their craft for more than 30 years. I always stumble upon something special when I tag with @ssquirewell. Thanks buddy!

Storytelling the Stillmotion Way

For the past few weeks the WWDK team at Duke Ellington School of the Arts has taken the Storytelling the Stillmotion Way Challenge to learn how to tell great stories using video. For some on the WWDK team, video is a bit intimidating. So I introduced the four part Stillmotion video series to guide them every step of the way. I came across this challenge through the Vimeo Video School which has lots of great DIY how-to videos that cover any and everything a beginner digital storyteller needs to tell a story using video.

Most of the team has completed Part 1 and 2 of the Stillmotion Way Challenge which covers preproduction and are on to Part 3, shooting. Stillmotion Way Part 3 gave some great tips about overall production, and the 10 Steps to Shooting your First DIY Interview video provided by the Vimeo Video School should fill in all the blanks for our beginners. 

Using the Vimeo Video School and the Stillmotion series has really helped to build my students confidence that they can tackle video as a storytelling medium. In addition to the video series Stillmotion has a downloadable pdf that covers all four parts of their storytelling process which many students have downloaded to their phones. This will hopefully come in handy while shooting their stories in the field. 

I’ll keep you posted on our projects as we discover more about the World We Don’t Know of digital video.
