Storytelling is a medium through which we can integrate our experiences and make sense of our lives. Through the sharing of our narratives, we are able to better understand each other and greater appreciate our strengths and diversity. With these ideals in mind, Bent Marble offers free creative documentary workshops that foster cross-cultural understanding and friendship, through empowering people to create their own digital stories with the resources they already possess, and share them with the world!
We welcome you to explore our site and find out more about what we do, where we do it, and how YOU can get involved as a workshop participant, organizational partner, or member of the Bent Marble community. Let’s keep this marble rolling!
We recently offered our first workshop series open to the general public at Jaaga Startup, a community workspace for creative entrepreneurs in Bangalore, India. One of the most dedicated students, Amit Kumar Dandyan, came to the workshops with a strong background in poetry, but no filmmaking experience whatsoever. He ended up creating a powerful film that was exceptionally creative and personal (two hallmark traits of “Clackumentaries” that Bent Marble strongly promotes). This poet discovered a unique and beautiful filmmaking “voice”. And he skillfully edited his piece, involving fairly complex keyframing (a motion graphics technique), using Adobe Premiere Pro, which he learned from scratch in our workshops. Please have a look now at Amit’s wonderful work:
