Finding and Organizing Images for Your Story
Recording Your Story
Once you have your story script, you need to record your script, find images to accompany your words, and assemble these elements together in a movie-editing program such as imovie. This can be a much more time-consuming process than writing the actual script, so it's important not to leave this to the last minute. Give yourself some time to "play around" with the program and get a feel for it before you begin working on your actual project.
Brian Satterfield suggests not only writing the script but recording your voiceover before finding images to illustrate the story. This will allow you to get a feel of not only the content of your script but the tone you've created with your own voice.

While your script is the core of your digital story, the other elements - the digital elements - are also important. A beautiful, strong script can be ruined by a poor recording or a lack of effective images. Hopefully your script will serve as the driving force behind the creation of your digital story by guiding and inspiring you.
