Digital stories and films:

If you've got text and still photographs, you can record a voiceover, make digital stories and complete the project by making a DVD, putting the stories on the internet and having a celebratory screening.

If you've got script and moving images you can make films that can be shown many times. The films, 'Snapshot Roath' and 'Tales from the Park' have been shown at the Milkwood Gallery, Roath and on the BBC Big Screen in Cardiff while 'We are', the film made with Philipine Generations, was circulated in London and virally online.

Digital stories were used in the Breaking Barriers project supporting Head4Arts' 2009 community play, Valley Girl.

Children's drawings were used for youth opera performances of The Raven King, by Mervyn Burtch and Benjamin Britten's Noyes Fludde at The Gate, Cardiff

By the way, what was happening behind Noah while he built the ark?
