Everyone has a story to tell

The internet, social media, mobile and wearable technology is changing the way we tell stories. Digital storytelling is constantly evolving and different skills and talents work together. At Hackastory we bring storytellers, developers and designers together during hackathons and workshops. So, let’s have fun, be creative and tell stories – in a new and awesome way!

And why

Consider this: a filmmaker needs a script, a crew for filming, production and actors or a subject. And this all has a logic to it to make the film, but this classic process of filmmaking had more than 100 years time to develop. Online storytelling does not have a tradition yet.

From our experiences – as journalist, developer and transmedia producer – we know that making an interactive concept and making it for the web is actually a very young and sort of undefined practice.

Online the possibilities are endless. Very exciting, especially in this present day dynamic media landscape. But it poses also many questions. Where should we start? And how to do it? We have seen that many storytellers (in the broadest sense) struggle with this.

We want to learn better how making stories for the web actually works, more hands-on experience, meet new people, create a network and experiment the hack out of it. Therefore Hackastory aims to learn by making and share experiences about the process of making online stories. In any shape, style or genre.

We don’t consider ourselves the Mr. Miyagi of online storytelling, but for sure Luke Skywalker with an endless curiosity to discover what this online storytelling is about.
