Another highlight of the University of Illinois Writing Project Summer Institute is sharing the first digital narrative video projects. We joke about it being a “kumbaya moment”, but it truly is a feel-good activity to culminate the first week of deep emersion. This project is a lot more than getting a chance to explore how to shoot footage, choosing clips to tell a story, and learning some of the bells and whistles that is available with movie editing software today. It is about getting to know new friends.
