Brittney Leeanne Williams - Vocalo Storytelling Workshop Winter 2016
1. Why did you become a Vocalo Storyteller?
My interests were peaked with the Vocalo Storyteller program because I have such a deep love and investment in storytelling as a craft/media art form. Because of that, I wanted to learn the tools to create my own stories as well as gain knowledge in podcasting.
2. Your piece in two lines.
Interviewing Black artists that are in her community, Brittney Leeanne Williams speaks to curator Janice Bond and artist Hebru Brantley. Looking at the journey of their careers, Williams inspects how they’ve evolved and grown into creative giants.
3. Why did you tell this story?
Because I’m an artist, I wanted to learn and listen as much as Vocalo listeners. As they listen and take heed to Bond and Brantley, I too am soaking up their creative wisdom. My project ended up being for the Vocalo listeners as much as for myself.
4. How are you a better storyteller and producer?
Learning the programs and equipment was a major portion of my education at Vocalo Storyteller. In addition to that, I really learned how to write a linear script that takes listeners on a journey.
