Video Storyteller Workshops
Workshops Presented by Jake Hoyungowa
The digital storyteller workshop is an opportunity for youth to engage, learn, and become a storyteller. By creating a film using a DSLR camera or smart phone camera, we are able to tell our own story through film. These workshops will teach participants how to create a film following four simple steps: story development, pre-production, production, and post-production. We have some interesting events and stories to tell coming up this year at TLE and other farming sites! If you are interested don’t hesitate to call, Facebook, or email us at the TLE office.
