How I Made My Short Story

To make this story I used a variety of media outlets. Audio, Visual, Video, and Design were among the media outlets used for this story. As you may have felt, this story is slightly depressing haha but don’t be fool the making of this was full of laughs. It is a ridiculous made up story that my 8 year old niece helped come up with. The chickens used in this story actually belong to my uncle. Yes, he has chicken in his back yard…

To begin my story, I first decided on which medias I would use and then created them all before actually writing the story. I started off by using an audio intro. To make this intro I used sound cloud and youtube. On youtube I looked up suspenseful background music and played it at a lower volume while I recorded the voice intro on sound cloud.

I then moved on to create the visual and design media’s that I would use. I started by using to create a camp poster. To do this I started with a basic poster template. I then edited the text on the poster by using the text option on the left hand side. I then looked up images of pets and inserted them into the poster by dragging them.

After doing this I used to edit all of my visuals/designs. I will insert only some of the different individual screen shots, since all of the steps were followed the exact same way. I began by cropping the images that would be inserted into other images by using the smart cut option under the geek tab. I used the green color to color over the parts of the photo that I wanted to keep, and the red to cover the parts I wanted to delete. I then googled and uploaded my secondary or background image. After doing that, I went under the layers tab and selected the add image option. I then resized the image by dragging the corners in and out. I layered the pictures on top of each other the way I wanted and then saved them onto my laptop.

The video that is used in my story was taken from an iPhone and inserted directly into the post.

After I had all of my visuals/ designs the way I wanted, I moved on to make the concluding audio. To do this I followed the exact same steps as I did for the intro. except this time I youtubed sad background music.
