Tell me some technical stuff!
Storyteller is built on WordPress. It is integrated as a theme, but it does far more than just changing a website's design. It simplifies the WordPress backend, too, in order to offer a simple and hopefully mostly self-explaining interface.
It uses Backstretch.js and FitVids.js to create full screen images and videos.
