Storytelling: How to Hone in on the Best Stories for your Cause/Work, hosted by Liz Norton ('16). Since the invention of photography in the 1860's, billions of pictures have been taken.

And, completely amazing when utilized properly. It doesn't have to be intimidating! Let Liz Norton ('16) help you realize your moving image dreams. Want to better document your cause or company? Learn how to best capture stories from your family? Kit out your phone to be a better (read: usable) camera? This salon can cover whatever smartphone video needs you may have. This will be fun and hands-on and we will watch stuff too.
