Digital Storytelling Example Presentation – Amber Sandberg

My presentation of a digital storytelling example is the collection of videos on the “Bad Lip Reading” channel from youtube.  The “Bad Lip Reading” folks take clips from various TV shows, movies and sporting events, remove the sound from those clips and then add their own dialogue.  Most of the “Bad Lip Reading” videos do not tell a cohesive story, but they do offer entertainment and many giggles.  I suppose the intended audience might be in and around 13 years old and male, as this is how I first came to know of them, but I know a few adults who watch this nonsense and come back for more.  Although this is not necessarily a platform for storytelling, I thought that it was an interesting take on video and demonstrated an additional way in which video can be manipulated to tell a story.
