With sadness I have learnt, Christophe Badoux has left us on 28. October 2016, unexpectedly. Christophe was a gifted illustrator working at the only Swiss comic magazine Strapazin. The more known illustrations are Stan the Hooligan, Per Fahrrad durch die Galaxis, or Klee a biography about Paul Klee. Some of his works are less known. One being my first animation.

This weekend, the Swiss voters decided to introduce a new asylum procedure. The procedure has been tested in the past 2 years by the Swiss Refugee Council in one Asylum Center in Zurich. One element of the new asylum process is a video in 16 languages informing to the asylum seekers about their rights, obligations and the individual steps in the asylum procedure. The video was produce by dubbed perceptions.
The evaluation of the new asylum procedure has been documented in the journal ASYL. The article reflects also on the use of the information video. What does the evaluation has to say about the video?

Last week I had the opportunity to address my professional demons, be they in or around my head. The safe haven to do this was provided by Darcy Alexandra during her digital storytelling workshop. The workshop taught participants how to tell their personal story with 3 to 4 minutes videos.
I recommend the workshop to everyone! Darcy and her team – Pip and Tony from patient voices and Veronica Vierin – know how to get the best out of every participant’s story. The strength of the approach lies in the focus on personal stories. No matter what your story is, you need to find your role in it. The power of the approach is incredible. The audience is compelled to hear your story and learn something new about your, the narrator. It feels so natural, for the storyteller as well as for the listener.
So I invite you to learn something about me ;-)
