Hi RFT, I have submitted my story. Please let me know where you think there is room for improvement. I will work on another story soon. I have one started but it needs a lot of work and maybe a 2 part story. Maureen
Hi RFT Thanks I'm in the process now and will send it when It's finished.
Hi Maureen! Excellent that you've managed to have a go at making a story... Can't wait to see it! To upload it here you can either upload it first on YouTube or Vimeo (Vimeo has much more control over privacy settings but you should have a read through the terms & conditions pages yourself & if you have any ?'s please post them). You can check out the RFT Vimeo page here and the YouTube one here. Both sites require simple registration (free) then follow the steps to upload - you can also then join the RFT groups & channels in each respective space. To embed on RFT you simply cut and paste the embed code from your preferred site into the 'add video' box here... once you've chosen one or the other we can walk you through it step by step!
I have made a story and I'm still tweaking the scene change sequences. Although I am really quite happy with it as it stands now. I have never done this before and I have recorded it on iMovie. I'm not sure what to do with it now. So far i have saved it in iTunes but I think it needs to go somewhere else first before it can come to the rainbowFT.
So really my question is how to move it over. I'm not sure I want to go through youTube to do it. I'm sure it's simple any suggestions will be gratefully received. thanks Maureen
Hey Claire, been wondering how you're doing! Both these stories sound awesome! Let them both brew for a bit... maybe start scribbling some ideas into what will eventually be your 'script'... no longer than around 250 words (sometimes a lot less) written from your point of view. It helps also to start thinking about who you're addressing the story to and imagining what images or music you might use to help evoke a 'mood'... might sound like a lot, but have a go just bit by bit, not all at once... Also you can download the 'how to guide' here ; )
2 stories in my head, may or may not eventuate. Love and depression (how can we fall so low that it feels inconceivable to be able see any light again), and Unconscious gender stereotyping of our children (we don't mean to do it, how can we give them the freedom to choose).
I've never done this before but I think it will be a good process for me (if I can make the time to do it). Don't really know where to start!
I've been thinking about making a new story and have posted a couple of blog updates as I try to work out what it's about and who my audience is... Now there's this new space for discussion... so here are links to where I'm at so far... first pondering... then drafting first thoughts with title 'ID'... any offerings anyone?
If you've made a new Digital Story recently (or a while back) and always meant to get around to uploading it... we'd love to see it!
Go to the video tab and press add in the top right corner. Cut and paste your embed code from Vimeo or YouTube and stand by... soon you'll have an opportunity to add description and tag words and tweak your settings. Voila!
If you're having any kind of tech dramas, there's no such thing as a stupid question! Post it here and together we'll work our way through it ; )
