Digital Stories from Charlestown

This summer UMBC students teamed with residents of Charlestown Retirement Community to create a series of digital stories. Drawn from the life experiences of the residents, the stories combined narration, animation, photos and music in short movies to be shared with others. Residents worked closely with student partners, acting as author and creative director of their individual story. Each student brought their own style and talents to the project, helping to create some unique examples of intergenerational storytelling.

The project was organized by the New Media Studio with funding from Retirement Living TV. You may view the videos below (requires Quicktime 7).
