The Blog: UNTOLD offers an online blog inviting every viewer to share their own stories via an online portal at UNTOLDProject.org. The diary-style entries capture the raw emotions of individual life journeys where, for a moment, you walk alongside and experience their story from their own voice.
The Series: Karen Shayne, an American cancer survivor and media personality, accompanied by social impact Canadian photojournalist, Lorna Dancey, whose ‘Scars Project’ and “State of Mind” storytelling exhibit attracted national attention, together criss-cross countries to find extraordinary stories within the ordinary, everyday lives of people and share them with the world.
The Podcast: This platform shares intimate and thought-provoking behind-the-scenes conversations of the UNTOLD video series. Invited guests discuss in a conversational setting via podcast the raw and exposed emotions of each story and lesson learned from the video series production. Story and segments are highlighted and discussed, ultimately peeling back additional layers of each video chapter providing reflection, honest and true take-a-way thoughts of each episode.
