Answer these six questions in relation to the audience for your digital narrative:
Why are you creating this story? Goals, rationale, purpose, premise? What do you want your audience to experience or understand?
I find some girls around who are unconfident, lack sense of security or defective. Some girls are wearing the ‘mask’ everyday and they are afraid of standing in front of their friends, colleagues and relatives with their bare face. Some girls don’t know how to do makeup, they will keep their heads down as long as somebody staring at them. I want to create a website which is telling girls to be confident either ways.
What is your story? In what way will it be original, surprising, human, passionate, truthful or relevant to your audience?
Stories will be gathered by audience (crowdsourcing). At the first stage before creating the website, I am gonna use Facebook page, Twitter and other social media platform to convey this concept and encourage female audience sharing their stories on Facebook page or using hashtag#. ‘At the age of 13, I didn’t like my look because I have less eyebrow. I tried to use my mother’s eyebrow pencil but in return for more ridicule. Classmates laughed at me, included a boy who I liked, they said I looked like a joke. I was very sad. I malingered for one week in order to not show myself in front of people until the lie of sickness was exposed by a doctor. I learnt a lot of tutorials how to do makeup, I just wanted to be normal, not wierd. In a long time, I did makeup everyday to cover my ugly eyebrow but I overcame the ugly look and accepted it until I met my boyfriend, My boyfriend likes my eyebrow and he said they are lovely.’ stories are original, very human and truthful like this example.
Where will you publish your story? What platform/s and hardware are suited to your audience? E-books, blogs, videos, photos, podcasts, tweets, status updates, apps, games, forums, websites?
It would be published on a website, which contains videos, images, audio and texts. Additionally, will simultaneously use Facebook page, Twitter and Youtube channel as promotional and user interactive supports.
Who is your audience? Who is your target viewer/user – i.e. the group you will target in promoting the work?
- This website is mainly designed for girls, especially for those young women aged between16 and 25, who care what others think of their looks.
- The part for audience sharing their stories is designed for different ages of people. Everyone can share stories about beauty on our platform which might meet our goal that guide girls to a positive way.
When will you create the content and start to engage your audience? What is the production process and publishing schedule?
Before create the website, I would like to create a Facebook page first to attract girls and participant in this project. They can share their stories on Facebook page and by using hashtag on Twitter and provide stories, feedback or something I need to improve or change. After gathering the information and crew call out, I will arrange time to shoot the video (actress /stories picked up from Facebook page).
How will your audience participate in the narrative? Will they be able to contribute to the narrative, alter the narrative, respond to the narrative?
This is a platform for audience sharing their personal stories. My audiences are main part of storyteller. All the stories will be revealed by audience. In another words, more audience more interesting stories and the website will be more attractive.
