Start creating your stories
These videos will guide you through a storytelling project. Each video consists of storytelling ingredients, tools and techniques. Just like cooking, different people can end up with different results depending on what you have on hand to work with, your experience with the tools, and your interpretation of the techniques. If you find that you are getting stuck with one part of the process, jump to the media, tools and techniques section of my website to learn more. As questions arise (and I know they will), Facebook is a good place for us to have a conversation. Join the Storytelling Recipe Club and you can also become a member of the closed group where you can interact with others who are learning how to record and share family stories.
Tell a story about yourself
In this project, you will make a short video about yourself. You don't need to write your whole autobiography to start sharing the experiences of your life with your family. The hardest part might be choosing the story.
Think of the challenges that you have faced in your life, and how you have overcome obstacles then met with success. Perhaps there are moments in your life that stay in your memory and changed the course of your life.
If it's hard to come up with ideas, browse through your old photos and mementos for ideas. Then just pick one and start cooking up a family story.
