Web Series Today: ♥Web Series...The New Way Of Storytelling

Web Series Today: ♥Web Series...The New Way Of Storytelling | Litteris | Scoop.it
Web series, web shows, web news, community video, online video, online originals, ARG, transmedia, alternate reality games, web television, web tv, indie TV, indie television, user generated content...

Ultimately my feeling is the net will be the source that saves the arts, the place where writers, producers, actors, musicians, artists can express themselves. The web series trend is the new way of telling stories and will continue attract the best in the industry as long as freedom reigns. This is just the beginning. Who knows what the future holds for scripted serials, whether on network television or online. I believe web series are here to stay and I am convinced it is an amazing opportunity for all who seek to keep the legacy of 'The Arts' alive!

Shh! It's a Secret: Raising the Tension and Conflict in a Scene

Shh! It's a Secret: Raising the Tension and Conflict in a Scene | Litteris | Scoop.it

Conflict and tension are two things you want in every scene, but it can be rough getting them both in there.

 

Characters can't always be at odds or butting heads, fighting gets old pretty fast, even a solid difference of opinion can only happen so many times before it starts feeling repetitious...

OTT and social TV causing “seismic shift” in viewing habits | Litteris | Scoop.it
Consumers in the US and UK are increasingly turning to broadband content and social networks to complement their existing viewing habits, according to a new survey by Accenture.

 

Accenture’s Pulse of Media Consumer Survey found that almost half of consumers are viewing over-the-top video through a broadband connection on their TVs (50% in the US and 48% in the UK) in addition to the content they traditionally watch via cable or satellite.

7 Tips for Better Storytelling | Hands On Blog

7 Tips for Better Storytelling | Hands On Blog | Litteris | Scoop.it

“How often do you tell your organization's story?  Being able to tell your organization’s story well can help you in everything from recruiting volunteers to writing reports. Here are some tips for telling your story well:


1. Stories are about people.

2. Let your characters speak for themselves.

3. Audiences bore easily.

4. Stories stir up emotions.

5. Stories don’t tell: they show.

6. Stories have at least one “moment of truth.”

7. Stories have a clear meaning.”

Altering the Quality of Time in Your Novel

Altering the Quality of Time in Your Novel | Litteris | Scoop.it

In a movie there are all kinds of techniques the director and film editor can use to speed time up and slow time down. But I bet you can think of instances or moments when time has felt different.Not just when it slows way down (like when you’ve had an accident or when you’re waiting for a doctor to come into the exam room with your test results ) or speeds up (getting old, in general) but when it feels different.

 

Do you have any idea of what I’m referring to?
