In the workshop, Dr Khan discussed various topics including camera settings, pictures with contemporary needs, story ideas and research. He also discussed practical issues like camera settings, story quality, FPS (frames per second), using appropriate video frames.
"The story that no one in the society talks about is the true story. There are many untold tales among the common people. One should choose a narrative with current issues as its subject. In addition to this, you have to select which social media platform will be used to reach your target demographic,” Dr Khan said at the workshop.
Dr Shahjahan Mandal and Dr Mohammad Nashir Uddin discussed the legal and Shariah perspectives of Community Digital Storytelling.
