Documentary Storytelling: Cyber Seniors

old-hands-keyboardThis Wednesday in my multimedia storytelling class we were assigned to write a blog post about a nonfiction documentary. I selected Cyber Seniors, a 2014 feature-length film. It is the story of a group of seniors that learn to use a computer and go online.

The documentary opens with the narrator’s grandparents, a smiling elderly couple, hunched over a tablet watching a video of a little brown-haired boy pretending to play piano.

And it’s a… Blog!

On Monday of this week I walked into my Multimedia Storytelling class excited to learn about creating a blog.  I came home with this, my first ever website.

Thinking about all the writing, designing and editing ahead of me, I was giddy with excitement leaving class that day.
