4: Digital Storytelling
Speaker: Nova Alberts
advances and social net-working have transformed the way that people choose and
consume works of fiction. This Write-After-Lunch is designed to provide a
snapshot of a number of innovative ways that storytellers are embracing digital
technologies to help tell and promote their stories across multiple media.
In 2009, Nova Alberts fell in love with interactive media. She has since
developed partnerships with over 35 local and national organizations, designed
concepts for and/or consulted on almost 50 interactive projects, and travelled
the country attending tech, marketing and digital content conferences to shine
a light on the interactive talents in Saskatchewan. Nova was responsible for
creating and delivering the Digital Media Initiative for the Saskatchewan
Motion Pictures Industry Association (SMPIA) which aimed to provide support for
content creators in the development, production and exhibition of rich and
substantial interactive media experiences in Saskatchewan.
Prior to her work at SMPIA, Nova spent over 12 years producing approximately
140 broadcast hours of factual-based television programming. In 2005, her
project Escape From Iran: The Hollywood Option (History Television, PBS)
received a Gemini nomination for “Best History Documentary”, and was recognized
with a Golden Sheaf at the Yorkton Short Film and Video Festival. Nova is an
alumni of the CWC Technology & Digital Media Career Accelerator Program and
holds a BFA from the University of Regina.
