Digital Storytelling: The light

This is the video which I created for my Multimedia class at Boise State. We were tasked with creating a digital story after having looked at and studied some examples last week. I chose to reflect on the importance of education to me in a very personal way. Over the last 8 months cancer has affected both my mother and wife. Almost everyone’s lives are affected in some way by cancer. Studying kept me going. It became my light. The one thing I could control and shape and take ownership of. This video is my personal reflection on that process.

I wanted to keep the images simple but high quality. I wanted  imagery to play a big part. I wanted to apply what I have learned. I keep the audio simple, the images are times and chosen to match the words and towards the end they transition from black and white to color which is a pretty crude attempt to show our progress into brighter things. It’s maybe a little cliched as a film but I am proud of it because it is real and it tries to communicate my feelings and motivation.

All images apart from 2 were sourced from creative commons licenses. I hope you find something in this that helps you should you ever be in a similar position.

Thanks

Andrew
