Digital Narrative:

Tell a Story with Images & Sound

A digital narrative is a series of images animated and combined with a sound track to provide a unique story-telling experience. The transitional motion of the images lends a sense of time and movement as the narration tells the story.

This technique is often used in documentaries and cultural videos, but can be used to tell almost any kind of story in any field. Smith students have produce digital narratives as part of their coursework in foreign languages, history, biology, physics, engineering, and several other fields.

A successful narrative requires some knowledge of working with images, recording a quality audio track, and some basic video editing skills. The Center for Media Production can help.
