This is a neat resource that I just discovered that can help those of you that want to tell the story of a place instead of a person.
Originally created to support the Ken Burns documentary on the National Parks, this section of the PBS web site page has tips about how to create videos.
The tutorial are designed for educators that do not have experience working with video. They take it slow and steady to guide users on the process.
There are videos and pdf guides that you can download and review. I really liked the guide on Gathering the Media for Your Digital Story. It broke down the process to explain a very simple script, the visuals, music in preparation for making a digital story.
The added bonus is information about geo-tagging and how to use Google Earth to help tell stories. This is really a gem of a a tutorial resource.
