Nicholson participated in the May 2008 MediaStorm Storytelling Workshop
. She had the following to say about her experience:
The MediaStorm Multimedia Workshop was inspiring. I came away feeling much more confident in my ability to create multimedia pieces. It was immense fun. The instructors are amongst the best multimedia producers in the business, and strike the right balance between throwing you in the deep end & stepping in at critical moments to rescue you. They sacrificed sleep with us to meet deadlines.
The workshop was really focused - we had very concise lectures on the essentials of video, audio, photography for multimedia packages and Final Cut Pro, and then went straight into the field as a team to apply the techniques.
I learnt a hell of a lot about story structure and how to gather media to support it. Learning audio and video is making me think about photography in a whole new way, and I'm excited about continuing the process.
