Found in Translation: a Digital Story
download: High-quality version though FIT servers
also viewable through youtube.
I prefer that people watch the high-quality version, since I didn’t make the video with online viewing in mind (it’s intended to be played full-screen, high-quality with the music blasting) so the text may be a bit small/blurred for this video quality. My apologies.
All of the text was taken from blog posts right here on FIT:
I collected around 30 excerpts that I wanted to use so I’m sad that I couldn’t include more in the video, but it’s all accessible just by browsing through the archives.
I feel like writing a whole lot more but I think for now I’ll just let the video speak. I’m more than happy to answer any questions people have, or discuss digital storytelling/new media, though.
