How would you shape your story?

Andrew Raimist's curator insight, March 1, 1:06 AM

Kurt Vonnegut's rejected anthropology thesis proposed that the shapes of a culture's stories was at least as important as the shapes of their pots and spearheads.


I've been interested about the potential relationship of literary form to visual form, how we understand them logically, intellectually and emotively. How could a drawing, painting or work of architecture express the ideas contained in a work of literature through the use of form?


You can see Vonnegut discuss his ideas on the shapes of stories in this clip on YouTube:

"It's one thing to understand the emotions that compel a person to click. It's another thing entirely to produce them."

CIM Academy's curator insight, January 13, 8:19 AM

Emotion, emotion, emotion....... if it helps stories go viral, then that endorses what advertisers have known for a while.

Eric Jaffe:  "[Psychologist Neil Cohn of University of California at San Diego] says any language has a "holy triumvirate" of elements: expressive form, grammar, and meaning. Comics, he argues, meet all three requirements."

Giuseppe Fattori's curator insight, January 8, 5:16 PM

Language is more than just a series of words strung together. A sentence must have some essential structure, some system of rules governing words and clauses--a grammar. You don't have to be Strunk or White to recognize this system at work; it's automatic in the brain. In Noam Chomsky's famous example, people know that the meaningless sentence "colorless green ideas sleep furiously" is grammatically correct the very first time they see it.

Excellent guide about how comics can be used to create short stories or to storyboard a larger project. Links to free versions of related software too - StoryboardThat.com; WeVideo.com (for turning comic strips into movies) and WidBook.com (for creating multimedia ebooks - and it's also a collaborative writing platform).

ColbyccSSS's curator insight, January 20, 10:00 AM

This is worth checking out. I am always searching for new ways to reach my students.

BI Media Specialists's curator insight, January 31, 9:31 AM

This could be a very interesting program that could be used with students to review or retell what they have learned in a class.  We would love to teach this to your students and help them through their first project.  Any takers?

This a great list, but, perfect?  I don't know about that :)  Stories aren't a magic bullet. However, applying these elements and telling the right story+right time+right audience... can make an emotional connection with your audience that impacts your business.
