Digital Storytelling Education and Consultancy

“Being a film maker used to have such a high bar to entry, especially in terms of the equipment required. But all that has changed and Jeff Licence taught us how to make great videos with nothing but our smart phones and his knowledge of film-making technique.”

Lone Keast | Executive Manager, Partnerships State Library of Queensland

These workshops are designed to help the arts, business, tourism, education and corporate sectors to:

  • define and extract their unique story/ stories into authentic offerings
  • understand the essential elements of storytelling
  • enhance their ability to share their work or message
  • capture quality content (video, photos and audio) with available technology (e.g smartphone cameras) to create an interesting visual sequence
  • edit this footage quickly (via smartphones) into short, sharp videos that capture the essence of an event, character or experience
  • save time and money on video production
  • share this self-created content via social media channels, websites and other promotional platforms to create awareness amongst a large online audience.

The workshops are facilitated by Jeff Licence. With a 25 year background across education, digital storytelling and media, Jeff has taught thousands of people aged from 5 to 85 how to plan, create and share their own stories.

Jeff also operates as a digital storytelling consultant, helping clients plan, develop and devise narrative ideas around their specific communication needs.

This can range from:

  • working internally with staff to brainstorm story plans
  • creating storyboards and scripts for presentations, reports, awards, competitions or public facing communication
  • accessing and providing advice on digital equipment needs to create your own content
  • mentoring and training specific staff in camera, editing, podcasting and storytelling.

Why Video?

“Consumers are 64% More Likely to Purchase a Product After Watching Online Video”
Social Media Today

75% of executives watch video content on business websites at least once a week”

“By 2018, mobile video will be 69% of all mobile traffic”
Cisco Visual Networking Index 

A video on your website has many benefits:

– Video is a visual, dynamic and interactive experience, tempting 70% of web browsers to Click Play, rather than read text.

– Videos convey essential information quickly, and bring emotion to a message in a way that text cannot, through music, vocal tone, character, imagery, colour and movement.

– Video is on demand, keeping people on your site longer while they learn what you have to offer.

– Videos help to drive search engine traffic to your website.

– Video is versatile and can be presented to prospective clients in a variety of ways – online, in store, on DVD, via social media, QR scan code, Youtube or Vimeo etc.

If you have a story to tell, video is the most effective medium to share it. Call us for a no- obligation chat and to see how we can help you get your story out there.

  2. Hi Jeff

    We are a family from Brisbane on holidays and just walked past your shop window display in Tugan. As a lover and collecter of many things ‘with stories’ of my own and found in obscure places and op shops etc etc I just wanted you to know how much we loved your creative display and it’s story. It was really enjoyed.

    Thank you

    • Thanks Karen, lovely to get your message (even belatedly!).
      Glad you enjoyed my eclectic effort – it was fun to put together and I really enjoyed seeing people engaging with the collection of story bits.
      There is so much history and detail and personality held in those old quirky things, I really love it.
      What kinds of ‘things with stories’ do you collect?
