Final Project Concept

My project will be created for the audience of the  Visit McMinnville Destination Marketing Organization. Visitors to the website will find the story and project compelling because information about kid friendly features in the town will be presented in an engaging way using several forms of multimedia.

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.

As a mass communication major preparing for a job in the media world, having my own website and blog felt a bit surreal.
