The Digital Rocking Chair's curator insight, November 28, 2015 7:48 AM


Adam Rogers:  "The shared universe represents something rare in Hollywood: a new idea. It evolved from the narrative techniques not of auteur or blockbuster films but of comic books and TV, and porting that model over isn’t easy. It needs different kinds of writers and directors and a different way of looking at the structure of storytelling itself. Marvel prototyped the process; Lucasfilm is trying to industrialize it."

O MUNDO À NOSSA VOLTA » Os Filhos de Lumière | Digital Stories and Education | Scoop.it

(“The world around us”)

 

 “If theory is rapidly forgotten, gestures and the artistic experience rest in the body, in the memory, in the look”

António Maneira's insight:

Is a great example of how artistic expression and storytelling greatly supports learning activities with young students. With the support of Fundação Caloust Gulbenkian “Os filhos de Lumière” developed in several schools activities with students that ultimately resulted in short movies where kids create their stories, direct and produce their own movies.

António Maneira's insight:

Pretty much an application to build tree-like narrative structures but very easy to use. And with an interesting characteristic of allowing to have intermediary videos associated to node connections.

7 Student-Tested Digital Storytelling Tools

7 Student-Tested Digital Storytelling Tools | Digital Stories and Education | Scoop.it

"Last month, in my classroom version of DIY BYOD, my fifth-graders dove into the world of digital storytelling. I gave them two prompts: they could write about “going down the rabbit hole” (in honor of our reading of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland), in other words, about the day everything changed; or they could write about “life lessons from the fifth grade.”

Victoria's Secret is a master class in how to elevate a brand and reconstruct social meaning.  

The Digital Rocking Chair's curator insight, November 20, 2015 11:50 PM


Megan Willett:  "Of course sex appeal has something to do with it, but there are plenty of sexy Instagram accounts that don't have nearly as many followers.  So how did Victoria's Secret get so popular?"

Digital Communication Students's curator insight, November 23, 2015 3:19 AM

The psychology of media explains us the reasons why the VS Instagram account is one of the most popular on the Internet. It has really as much followers as the nike account has. Nevertheless, the reasons why are understandable.

Google Earth Tour Builder lets you tell stories through maps

Google Earth Tour Builder lets you tell stories through maps | Digital Stories and Education | Scoop.it

"Google has used Earth and Maps to tell tales of unfolding tragedies and soldiers fighting for our country. Now its opening up those tools to the public, allowing users to build what they're calling "Tours" through Google Earth. Tour Builderwas released in honor of Veterans Day and it allows users to create narratives tied to points on a map. The process is pretty simple: you drop a marker, add some text, photos or videos and you're on your way. As you piece together your tale, dropping pins, you can pull the viewer down into Street View or fly to a particular angle on a 3D landmark."

Lucas and Spielberg on storytelling in games: 'it's not going to be Shakespeare'

Lucas and Spielberg on storytelling in games: 'it's not going to be Shakespeare' | Digital Stories and Education | Scoop.it

Bryan Bishop:  'Speaking Wednesday at a panel at the University of Southern California — joined by Microsoft’s Don Mattrick — George Lucas and Steven Spielberg argued that introducing the concept of interactivity fundamentally changes the experience. "They’re always going to be different," Lucas said when asked if movies and games were going to become more similar. "They’re never going to be the same."'

 "I think ultimately the big game of the next five years will be a game where you empathize very strongly with the characters, and it’s aimed at women and girls. Because they like empathetic games," -  G. Lucas


Via The Digital Rocking Chair
António Maneira's insight:

It seems these authors agree that evolution in gaming will bring new forms of storytelling as the game industry is investing a lot more in characters when designing the games.

Louise Robinson-Lay's curator insight, June 14, 2013 6:22 PM

It’s not uncommon for designers to confuse a beautiful looking product with one that works beautifully. A great technique for creating smarter, better products is to approach them using story-centered design.
