Robin Good's curator insight, April 15, 2014 6:52 AM



In this SxSW set of video interviews captured by Wipster (a collaborative video review and approval service) with some of the "experts" in the online video publishing field, you can hear most of what you already know and expect from the future of video: 4K, real-time editing, effects, 3D, small screens and more. 

What instead emerges as the real challenge though, is to realize that no matter what kind of tools and services you use, the difficult part is to have a good story and to learn how to tell it on video.


Tools are great and easy indeed, but they don't make anyone a capable storyteller instantly. This is what we really need to work on.


No need to view all 12+ minutes of the video. Just check the first and the last interview in this clip and you will get the real meat.  



Insightful. Informative. 7/10

Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's curator insight, December 28, 2013 6:19 AM

If television is the brash younger sibling of cinema, then online web series are its screaming newborn grandchildren. As it's a medium still very much in its infancy, a whole host of questions remain unanswered. How long should an episode be? How do you keep fickle viewers coming back for more? Will they ever make any money? Until those answers are found, online filmmakers will continue to explore the possibilities of the nascent form, occasionally with wonderful results. Here are the best examples from 2013.

Jonathan Gottschall:  'In his 1897 book What is Art? the great Russian novelist Leo Tolstoy defined art as “an infection.” Good art, Tolstoy wrote, infects the audience with the storyteller’s emotion and ideas.'

Tenemos muchas historias que contar y lograr que quien las escuche realmente se conecte, no sólo depende del contenido de la historia, sino de la forma cómo la cuentas, aquí algunos pasos del storytelling

Marco Gabrielli's curator insight, August 13, 2013 8:30 AM

Il poster evidenzia gli argomenti chiave, necessari per sviluppare differenti forme di storytelling. I tre elementi principali sono:


1) la definizione di sette popolari tipi di trame (la vittoria sul mostro, diventare ricchissimi, la traversata del deserto, nuova consapevolezza, commedia, tragedia, rinascita) ;

2) l'identificazione di sette tipi di eroi presenti nelle diverse trame (Dracula, Cenerentola, Ulisse, Alice, Aristofane, Macbeth, A Christmas Carol);

3) l'elenco dei principali tipi di intreccio che possono essere utilizzati in una storia efficace (chiamata, sfida, conflitto, crescita, risoluzione).

 

I principali riferimenti da cui trarre spunto sono i romanzi classici, le opere teatrali e i film. In questa maniera, è possibile ottenere una migliore aderenza tra la realtà che si vuole descrivere o promuovere e la trama della storia.

 

(Grazie a Robin Good da cui ho attinto l'infografica e il commento).

Remember,

“A brand is a story that is always being told.”


Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, August 15, 2015 11:12 AM

Nice example of how visual "packaging" makes something you probably already know fun and interesting. Good thing, too. Storytelling is a critical skill because it is how the brain understands and stores information. And maybe each variation of presentation using image or language lets you hear it a little differently each time. Lurking psychological principles: repetition increases learning; frequency increases liking and personal relevance or salience; image engages instinctive, faster and more emotional processing than text alone.
