Context I always say is the other king!
Ariana Amorim's curator insight, June 17, 2013 11:48 AM

This article tells us about the Kuleshov Effect and its implications on brand experience. I think there's more to it and that's why I rescoop it here.

 

The Kuleshov Effect is a film editing (montage) effect demonstrated by Russian filmmaker Lev Kuleshov in the 1910s and 1920s. 

 

In the dawn of the 20th century, cinema was a new art form, comprising many techniques that hadn’t been developed. The elements of editing were among the ones that had not been studied to the needed extension. Lev Kuleshov was among the first to indicate the power of film editing and to dissect the effects of juxtaposition.

 

Kuleshov put a film together, showing the expression of an actor, edited together with a plate of soup, a girl in a coffin and a woman on a recliner. Audiences praised the subtle acting, showing an almost imperceptible expression of hunger, grief, or lust in turn. The reality, of course, is that the same clip of the actor's face was re-used, and the effect is created entirely by its juxtaposition with other images.

 

Through his experiments and research, Kuleshov discovered that depending on how shots are assembled the audience will attach a specific meaning or emotion to it.The implication is that viewers brought their own emotional reactions to this sequence of images, and then moreover attributed those reactions to the actor, investing his impassive face with their own feelings.

 

So, can we recognize emotion without context? How do we reframe the stories we tell others and ourselves?

 

The stories that we tell ourselves are powerful. And yet, if you think about it, they are, in fact, just stories. 

 

Once we realize that, it then becomes possible to conclude that we could,  tell ourselves other stories –  stories that make space for our own growth, stories that build us up instead of break us down.

Open the Floodgates with Emotional Stories

“We are wary of listening to stories that we think are being told to manipulate our emotions or push us to believe a certain way,” said Francesca Pollett, author of It Was Like a Fever: Storytelling in Protest and Politics in a phone call with me last year. “On the other hand,” she says, “ambivalent stories, stories with no clear moral agenda, invite the listener to imagine themselves in the story. True engagement happens when the listener can see multiple outcomes for a story and is able to come to their own conclusions.”

Peter Fruhmann's curator insight, June 21, 2013 4:06 AM

What struck me most in this high-quality article was the insight that once we have told our story, itn isn't ours anymore. Others will add their interpretations and associations to it. So, if you tell a story, it better be good and with a clear message and meaning, otherwise it will be sistirted unrecognizably.

"Storytelling has become popular across many different media in the last few years and a lot has been written about both the story and the telling parts of storytelling. One potential problem in the overuse of the word storytelling (am I am guilty as charged) is the difference in discipline of storytelling and storyshowing."

Great insights from Cailin Burns on the intersection of games and television series in anticipation of Spielberg's collaboration on a live-action Halo series.  In games, however, players become owners of the story through their individual actions and choices within the narrative in the play process.  Will that translate to television because of the rich storyworld alone or does it demand a fluid playing-watching dual platform (game to television) experience, such as Defiance to make a successful transition?  Just finding out is exploring a new world.
