What to employ storytelling to engage your audience, then implement these easy to follow story formula ideas.

Brad Tollefson's curator insight, July 24, 1:08 PM

Remember,

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


Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, August 15, 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.

BREAKING BAD – Motivated Camera Movement

BREAKING BAD – Motivated Camera Movement | Backpack Filmmaker | Scoop.it

Cinema is a visual art form. It is universal and ubiquitous. The same images and stories flash by inside a darkened theater as they do inside your living room. Films enthrall us. They are spellbinding. They are magical. The spectacle of seeing moving images for the first time is something never forgotten. The first film I saw was JAWS at a drive-in theater in Canada at the age of 4. I’m still petrified of sharks. Thanks Spielberg!

What Exactly Does an Experienced Editor Do? This Short Animation Reveals Everything

What Exactly Does an Experienced Editor Do? This Short Animation Reveals Everything | Backpack Filmmaker | Scoop.it

We live in an age where a 6-year-old with a laptop and a copy of iMovie can edit some footage together. Editing software is abundant and as easy to use as it has ever been, and the masses are using these tools to flood the internet with copious amounts of video content. But most of us can agree that simply being able to make edits does not necessarily make a person an editor, at least in the sense of the editing being a creative art form.

Netflix's Viewing Data: How We Know Where You Are in House of Cards | Backpack Filmmaker | Scoop.it

Over the past 7 years, Netflix streaming has expanded from thousands of members watching occasionally to millions of members watching over two billion hours every month.  Each time a member starts to watch a movie or TV episode, a “view” is created in our data systems and a collection of events describing that view is gathered.  Given that viewing is what members spend most of their time doing on Netflix, having a robust and scalable architecture to manage and process this data is critical to the success of our business.
