in 2005 i became a mentor for some of the national film board's new community storytelling initiatives. i learned about digital storytelling - short form filmmaking using recorded voice and still photographs.
i began to work within communities helping folks tell their personal stories.
I got to work with Danel on a story about his hamster!
we learned to listen to how the students wanted to tell their story
it was so fun to help these young people have a voice
we were welcomed back to this small community in Surrey BC!
this time I got to help Iaric tell a story about his cat!
a celebration screening was again held in the gym
these workshops were so fun!
we worked with seniors in 2 different community centres in Vancouver
I helped Nina tell her story of being confronted by a moose!
I also helped Ron tell his story of immigration
Partnering with YouthCO in Vancouver and Edmonton filmmaker Terri Wynnyk to help at-risk youth tell their stories
Lulu was a hard worker and generous storyteller
Lulu has since passed away, I feel lucky to have spent time with her
here are all the filmmakers
it is a gift to help someone find their voice
