embracing storytelling—doing it visually

embracing storytelling—doing it visually | GoodStories246 | Scoop.it
Many blame the Internet for the deterioration of communication. But our tech columnist thinks we're still telling great stories, we're just doing it a different way.

 

Digital naysayers blame the Internet for the deterioration of human communication.

 

The long handwritten cards of days past turned into poorly punctuated text messages. In-depth reporting became attention-grabbing headlines. Public discourse went from full-length letters to the editor to trash talking in the comments section and meaningless retweets.

 

Complicated ideas, it seems, don’t stand a chance in a world of instant messages, texts, status updates, and tweets.

 

In some ways, it’s hard to argue: It would have been hard for the Founding Fathers to publish the Federalist Papers on Tumblr (the comments would be overridden with “tl;dr”). Elizabeth Cady Stanton wouldn’t have been able to tweet the Declaration of Sentiments (even with a #SenecaFalls48 hashtag). And Martin Luther couldn’t have posted his 95 Theses on someone’s Facebook wall. (No thumbnail photo? Not interested!)

 

It seems like we’re on a slippery slope toward a culture devoid of context—a world in which narrative storytelling is dead.

Trini Sánchez Pérez's comment, August 28, 2012 8:01 AM
La narrativa digital añade a la comunicación un lenguaje más acorde a como fluye nuestra percepción de la realidad, y creo que es fruto de la propia evolución, lo lineal y digital no son estímulos o percepciones contrarias no son medios comunicativos excluyentes, creo que hay personas que sin los "wasap" o "msm" no habrían
escrito nada en su vida. Películas como "Memento", o los cuentos de Cortazar son precursores de la narrativa no lineal y es un medio más que podemos utilizar como tantos o cerrar el libro, apagar y a vivir que son dos días. Creo que el mundo digital y las redes sociales unen más que separan tanto en el trabajo con el "cloud computing" y la "nube" ;como a las familias como es el caso de tantos inmigrantes, aunque inmigrantes digitales seamos en cierto todos

Two Killer Methods to Tell a Social Impact Story

Two Killer Methods to Tell a Social Impact Story | GoodStories246 | Scoop.it
The social impact story you tell in your CauseVox crowdfunding video is critical. Here are tactics to help your nonprofit and cause through storytelling.
Joseph McCaleb's insight:

Note the analysis of the EarthRights Int. video:

Language: The film uses clear language and flashes keywords across the screen instead of using just a narrator.

Variety: They use a mix of interviews, images, and visual explanations to get their message across.

Framing: They find a way to explain both the issue they are trying to solve, and how they go about solving it, while providing context for any images or videos that could otherwise be viewed in a more dehumanizing light.

I so wish I could say: Daddy, thank you so much for the stories. | GoodStories246 | Scoop.it

"My father added a whole dimension to my childhood, one that I took for granted.

 

When my sister and I were little, we had an almost daily ritual with my father: drawing stories.

 

He would sit us on his lap and get out his clipboard, a piece of paper and his black click pen. He’d divide the paper into four parts, and draw as he told a story. Sometimes he drew old favorites and we knew what would be in each of the four drawings. Sometimes he let us decide what he should say and draw. But most of the time, we had no idea what would come next.

 

And that was really fun."

3 TED Talks That Uncover the Secrets of Storytelling

3 TED Talks That Uncover the Secrets of Storytelling | GoodStories246 | Scoop.it

"When I decided to write an article on brand storytelling inspired by TED talks, I went about it all wrong.

 

Scouring YouTube for tactics, elements, and components of brand storytelling, I was aiming to find five or ten (or 17) actionable tips that you can use to tell you brand’s story.

 

I was already boring myself to death and I hadn’t even begun to write.

We have all heard (ad nauseam) about the “power of brand storytelling,” and I know that I have read more than one blog that spits off a numeric list of tips that I just “can’t live without” as a content marketer.

 

I began to get curious about what pulls me, personally, into a story. What is it that moves me so much that I become an advocate of the brand/person/cause that is being talked about in the story? What is that secret sauce in brand storytelling that activates the magic button inside each of us, firing up our passion?"

Very good POV on story and some interesting TED Talks - especially Nancy Duarte. Worth your time!

Karen Dietz's curator insight, July 23, 3:37 PM

Fellow curator Gregg Morris discovered this gem for his Story and Narrative curation and I thought you should know about it too.


3 TED talks are featured here and they are all worth watching. The first one from Andrew Stanton on the Clues To A Great Story I've curated before. It's a keeper. 


The second one from JJ Abrams is new for me -- and I love it. It's all about adding mystery into the storytelling toolbox. As the author of this post Julie Newmark says, "For example, creating puzzles to solve, challenges and even small adventures within your brand stories, you are involving customers and inspiring them to use their minds together as they seek to discover more. Engagement and connection to your brand is the point here and using mystery creates the potential for taking it all to a deeper level." Right on!!


And the third video from Nancy Duarte focuses on one of the most powerful dynamics for moving people to action -- before and after pictures.


Have fun with these and incorporate these lessons into your business storytelling.

A.K.Andrew's curator insight, July 27, 9:02 AM

Stories need to be captivating from the beginning or you'll bore the pants of your audience, whether it's fiction or brand storytelling.
