Q&A with a Story Guru: Kendall Haven: Part 2 - Storytelling is Most Certainly an Analytical World - A Storied Career

Q&A with a Story Guru: Kendall Haven: Part 2 - Storytelling is Most Certainly an Analytical World - A Storied Career | Story and Narrative | Scoop.it
I disagree with the final phrase of the question. Storytelling is most certainly an analytical world. Successful teller must moment-to-moment analyze and study the audience. They must analyze their technique and compare their own to that of other tellers. They must critically and ruthlessly analyze their stories and their performance of them. Without this critical, active, and continuous analysis, the teller is doomed to mediocrity at best.

NASA - Message from the Academy Director: Creating the Story

NASA - Message from the Academy Director: Creating the Story | Story and Narrative | Scoop.it
Your job is the story.

If you're skeptical about that assertion, consider its source. Bran Ferren, the former president of research and development of Walt Disney Imagineering, told me this ten years ago. Ferren also added that unless an organization operates with that conviction, it's going to be a failure. This was in the early days of our knowledge sharing forums, before we created ASK Magazine as a venue for practitioners to tell their stories. The conversations I had that day taught me that if the Academy was going to increase its impact on the agency, I needed to have the right people sharing the right stories.

Reading for the Joy of It: THE FATES WILL FIND THEIR WAY by Hannah Pittard (2011) Ecco

Reading for the Joy of It: THE FATES WILL FIND THEIR WAY by Hannah Pittard (2011) Ecco | Story and Narrative | Scoop.it
Told in the bewildered third person plural, THE FATES WILL FIND THEIR WAY contemplates the disappearance of 16-year-old Nora Lindell one Halloween, from the perspective of the teenaged boys in her life, not only at the time of Nora's likely abduction, but also later in their lives as young married men with children of their own. Their collective guilt at not being able to find Nora and keep her safe leads to magical thinking about the life she may well have found without them.

Campfire Journalism - The Building Blocks of a Multimedia Story

Campfire Journalism - The Building Blocks of a Multimedia Story | Story and Narrative | Scoop.it
You have pages of notes, hundreds of photos, and hours of audio and video. Now what?
Turning raw material into a cohesive and compelling story is the main challenge for a multimedia journalist. Often we have a sense that there is a story buried in there somewhere if we can just locate the essential elements and fashion them in narrative. As a teacher, I’m always looking for ways to help my students identify the building blocks of a story.

Storytelling Word on the Street - My Modern Metropolis

Storytelling Word on the Street - My Modern Metropolis | Story and Narrative | Scoop.it
Imagine starting a photo series over 30 years ago. Imagine the patience it requires in finding an authentic and powerful street moment. That is the abbreviated story of Richard Nagler, a man who spent days finding poignant words in isolation then waited for a lone individual to pass by. It couldn't just be any person, however, that stranger had to breathe life into that word, creating a story out of a split-second moment.

Successful Knowledge Management Storytelling at Fluor - Jeff Hester | Story and Narrative | Scoop.it
Before we developed written languages, storytelling allowed us to pass down our history and knowledge from one generation to the next. Even today, storytelling remains a powerful medium. A well-told story with a meaningful message is easier to remember, internalize and share.
Earlier today I chatted with fellow knowledge management (KM) colleagues at KMers.org on the subject of corporate storytelling and knowledge management, and I promised to share my storytelling story.

Can Creating Computer Games Develop Reading and Writing Skills? - MindShift

Can Creating Computer Games Develop Reading and Writing Skills? - MindShift | Story and Narrative | Scoop.it
One of my favorite results that we’ve discovered so far is based on a study that just came out by a local educator in a PhD program at the University of Washington. The study found a correlation between kids’ ability to program and to write, to create narrative. He has a theory that when you’re designing a video game you have to understand the points of view of many different characters. You have to think about what the user can and can’t see.

The International School of Storytelling, Sussex, UK

The International School of Storytelling, Sussex, UK | Story and Narrative | Scoop.it
A storyteller is more than a teller of tales. Storytellers are entertainers, teachers and healers with a long spiritual tradition. To be true to this tradition requires ongoing renewal and inspiration.

The International School of Storytelling, founded in 1994, is the longest running centre of its kind where the craft of the storyteller is practiced and honoured. Here stories come alive and serve performers, healers, teachers, the business world, the environment and the wider community.

Selling by storytelling, the Steve Jobs way - Emi Gal

Selling by storytelling, the Steve Jobs way - Emi Gal | Story and Narrative | Scoop.it
Selling is all about telling a story that’s relevant to the person you’re telling it to, but at the same time creates an emotional impact or connection. If you look closely at the paragraphs above, you’ll notice that the stories involve the interviewer directly. It may not make the person buy whatever you’re selling directly, but it might make people pay more attention to whatever your saying.

Storytelling: The Foremost Fundamentals And Elemental Essentials

Storytelling: The Foremost Fundamentals And Elemental Essentials | Story and Narrative | Scoop.it
Every day is a day for stories.

No, I don’t mean movies, or television, or that novel you’re reading, or that game you’re playing.

I mean you, me, and the falafel vendor on the corner, we all are the givers and receivers of stories. We tell stories, and they are told to us in return. This is a primitive, critical need inside us hairless monkeys: it’s why we painted stories on cave walls about punching antelope, it’s why we sat (and still sit) around campfires and tell stories about how the gods created microwave ovens or how Betty Sue McGooligan was cut apart by the serial killer with the hook for a head. It’s why when we get together with our wives or our friends or even our children our first impulse is to tell stories.

My day-to-day job is as Last.fm’s Data Griot. The ‘data’ part of that isn’t so important; we have scientists who work with the algorithms at the heart of Last.fm and I don’t get hands-on with numbers. The ‘Griot’ part is though. Griot basically means storyteller; my job is to turn Last.fm’s numbers into stories that say something about the pop-culture they’re a part of.

What StoryBiz buzzers won’t tell you about storytelling (because they don’t know) - Limor's Storytelling Agora | Story and Narrative | Scoop.it
This is it: you can’t learn storytelling through reading books, articles, blogs or tweets. You need to tell stories to people face-to-face for years, say around 7-10 years before you can even call yourself a storyteller, there is no quick-fix, there are no express-benefits. Being a true storyteller and extracting the human glory of this magnificent art is a way of life, a walk, not a trend, not the next big thing.

Storytelling and how it brings your presentation to life.

You might look at the girl in the image and ask yourself: “What’s her story?”. Without words to give us the answers, we are left to fill in the gaps ourselves. As a storytelling experience, the relationship between the content and the graphics is very important. They are totally interdependent. Neither the words nor the graphics should live without each other.
