A good example of a story based on a few key photos that were manipulated in different ways using Adobe Photoshop, Cara holds you in suspense to the meaning of jello in her early childhood days.
[Created in a Spreading the Stories inspired train-the-trainer workshop at Umass Boston's Taylor Center. What's exciting about this workshop format is that if the chemistry is right, people start truly interacting and supporting each other's creative process - and we were lucky to have that in multitude. Unfortunately, I think I was a tad ambitious to fit a 3-4 day training into two days, especially since there were such varied level of experiences with the Mac OS and iMovie. One of the big ambitions of any of these workshops is having people FINISH their work by the end. I'm fairly conflicted on this issue - on one hand, I know that some people won't have time to finish the stories back in their real life, but many of the participants expressed that they got more out of going through the process and felt too much pressure to just finish and not really learn. I tried to get down as much of the groups questions and feedback at the end, so here's some of those notes.]
