Storymobile is a moveable community engagement space that makes it easy to collect your stories.
Collect your stories at Storymobile, an invention of the Saint Paul Almanac.
Storymobile involves a team of filmmakers, audio makers, and writers, who work with individuals and groups in writing, speaking, performing, and recording the stories of their lives.
Standard Event Rate: $3000 for 2 hours.
-Before your event, we consult with you on your goals for the event and together devise questions with your objectives in mind.
-Storymobile arrives at your event one hour early and sets up.
-For two hours we ask participants questions and collect stories. Stories are filmed and podcasted. Three-to-five of our professional interviewers collect stories at the same time.
-Within fourteen days we deliver to you in Dropbox an archive of all the stories we collected at your event. The Dropbox includes professionally edited 3-minute and 6-minute films; edited podcasts (usually ten or more); multiple short films of individual interviews (usually between 25 and 50).
-Stories can also be archived in the Minnesota Digital Public Library’s permanent collection as a record of the event for future generations.
