Watch Now: Salt Online Archival Storytelling, Student Showcase

Don't miss this replay of the Salt student showcase; work produced from the first online Salt Archival Storytelling class. In this course, students learned to edit film using archival film material from public archives. Students developed an idea, turned that idea into a story, and edited that story into a compelling short film.

This playlist has a running time of 24 minutes total for all four documentary videos; watch via YouTube

"California Folk Music" by Gretchen Hilyard;"The American Worker" by Erica Snyder-Drummond;"The National Parks: From Our Story to Theirs" by Johnathan Morris;"The Sandpiper, The Swallow, and The Spaniard's Graves" by Bennett Mosseau.

Salt: Visual Storytelling With Archival Film Editing

Tell a story. Tell your story — and learn how to use the footage of one hundred years of film history as your collage. In the past century, humans have created (and forgotten about) so many visual objects -- from 16mm films of vacations to snapshots of graduations and birthdays, to instructional filmstrips, and recorded music performances. Luckily the Internet Archive and a few other institutional repositories have preserved some of this material for us.
