What memories do you have of middle and high school? Are they moments that fill you with joy or regret?
Our recollections of high school are often so vivid that they stay with us for years. They might be memories of friends, classes, or special events. They might be positive or negative, but they can’t be written on paper and thrown away when torn. They remain with us always. Make them worth remembering.
Presenting In Spite of 20
A Short Film by Michelle Melnik
Do you remember a time when you were introduced to something exciting? The newness was overwhelming, and you felt like you were dancing with confetti. Some times the enthusiasm can take over, and things can go terribly wrong.
This can happen at any stage of one’s life, even at the young age of 10.
Presenting Savant 10, written and performed by Michelle Melnik.
Imagine seeing yourself in a silent video. Your eyes are glued to the screen so you won’t miss any crucial moments. You examine every movement and facial expression because without sound, there are few disruptions from your actions.
If you see yourself in this context, will you watch with a judgmental eye, as if this person is a stranger, or will you view with wonder as you become the character?

Your words have the power to tell the most incredible stories. Audio storytellers have a way of captivating listeners with their voice. It may be humorous or motivational. It may be fiction or non-fiction. It may be one voice or many, but it all begins with a story.
And there is a story in everything. You just need to look for it.
Have you ever looked at a picture and thought about the story behind it? We often associate storytelling with words, but pictures tell a story all their own. Just imagine the story that you can create when you place two images together. These are called Diptychs, and when you experiment with them, your stories can take some unexpected turns.
My diptych story was created with a deliberate hand, but you may discover a different story here.
