Starting November 30, Portland Community Media is offering a Digital Storytelling workshop that will teach the basics of Final Cut Pro and Photoshop, while you work individually on a project about your neighbors, your street, your nieghborhood. See full workshop details below.
Digital Storytelling: Portraying A Neighborhood
Mainstream media’s emphasis on passive entertainment has some cultural critics, educators and media makers questioning if society is losing the art of telling stories. In this six-session training, participants will learn to use photos, video clips, voiceover and music working in Final Cut Pro and Photoshop to tell a story about your neighbors, your street, your neighborhood.
Workshop dates: November 30, December 2, 7, 9, 14 and 16, Tuesdays and Thursdays, 6:30PM to 9:30PM
Trainer: Brenda Grell was born and raised in Los Angeles and received a BA in Art Practice and Women's Studies from UC Berkeley. In 2006, she obtained an MFA in Digital+Media from the Rhode Island School of Design. Her videos have been shown at the LA Freewaves, Pacific FIlm Archive, Artist's Television Access, and the RISD Museum of Art.
