I was very lucky to be able to attend a two day workshop run by the State Library of Queensland last friday. The workshop was part of the Q150 celebrations, its aim for participants to create a digital photostory that captures a memory or story somehow relating to Queensland.
Three staff from our library, four retired volunteers from the Milne Bay Military Museum and a partridge in a.. oops and a retired oral historian attended the workshop.
I must say one of the best parts of the workshop was talking with the other attendees. I learnt heaps from them, and was on the receiving end of some great tech tips!!! I was also very moved by the amazing war digital stories that they created.
I chose to create a story based on some interviews I had done with some of the parents who attend our storytime. Due to time constraints, I only used one of the interviews. We used a free program called Windows Movie Maker, and below is the end result. And yes, that is me with the ducklings on my fingers!!!!
