Morgan Newall's insight:

This is really interesting, and very closely aligned to the work I'm moving towards, and passionate about. Creating and living a created Brand Story. If it can be done in such an organisation steeped in bureaucracy, it can be done anywhere.

Well, if a government agency in Britain can positively change its culture, then any one can. This article talks about how they did it. And it includes storytelling.


Sure -- they made some systems changes, like removing 4 layers of management. But they also focused on storytelling. It's the perfect one-two punch that ensures success.


The leaders of the organization say that storytelling has helped them go beyond their traditional ways of communicating to be more honest, personal and open in talking and listening to staff. This has led changing the way people lead the department, and finding solutions that have dramatically changed their culture for the better.


Read the article for another example of how storytelling in leadership actually works.

Pivotshare helps media creators and publishers sell their digital video content direct to their audiences, on our platform or your own site.

Robin Good's curator insight, May 9, 2013 5:59 AM


Pivotshare is a web service that allows any author or independent publisher to create a professional-looking video venue where to showcase, organize and (optionally) sell access to video and audio content.


Video channels created on Pivotshare will have a personalized URL such as robingood.pivotshare.com, and you can further brand the channel with your selected profile picture or logo and your favorite background.


Video channels can be displayed as "showcases" or "libraries" depending on the quantity of material you have available, can be embedded on any web site and can be easily viewed across all types of screens and devices, from desktop to mobile.


On Pivotshare you can upload directly .MP4, .MOV, .SWF, .FLV, .AVI, and .MP3 files and organize them into discrete collections. You can add names, descriptions, relevant tags as well as decide how you want to make this material accessible.


You can for example let everyone see freely certain content, while at the same time making a "tip jar" facility available and setting your preferred minimum tip level. Or you can decide to set a "monthly subscription price", rather than a "rental" or "purchase" fee.


Check this image to get a better idea: http://o7.no/15Mgscw


It is also possible to invite and collaborate with other authors / publishers contributing all to the same video channel.



Pivotshare is definitely a gret solution for independent authors and publishers, who are looking to start their commercial video channel online with the minimum effort and the maximum of results.


There are no costs involved. Pivotshare keeps a fixed percentage of your incoming revenues (unclear how much exactly).


Free to use.

The best portable wireless microphone kit alternatives available for purchase online.

If you are a web publisher or rookie video-maker interested in capturing good quality sound in your next video interview, having a good, reliable  portable wireless microphone kit can make all of the difference of the world (especially if the alternative is the built-in microphone inside your camcorder).


Recording the voice of the person you are interviewing with a dedicated mike, close to the person and not too sensitive to other sounds in the background is the ideal solution, to obtain the same kind of sound you hear on professional news interviews on TV.

In this collection I have put together by using the Amazon Wish List facility, you can find over a dozen "economic" wireless microphone kits (under $250) as well as indispensable accessories as adaptors, plugs, lavalier microphone backup and wind protectors.

Tipping Point. Mobile TV overtakes Desktop TV. ABC Catch-Up TV On Mobile Devices Overtake Web - ABC TV Blog

Tipping Point. Mobile TV overtakes Desktop TV. ABC Catch-Up TV On Mobile Devices Overtake Web - ABC TV Blog | Story Clusters | Scoop.it

Viewing programs on the ABC’s iview via iOS devices (i.e. iPads, iPhones and iPods) is now as popular as viewing via the iview website.
Last week, iview streaming on iOS devices represented 45.2% of total iview plays, versus 45.1% via the iview website.
ABC Children’s content has contributed to the huge growth in popularity of iview via iOS devices, accounting for 15 of the top 20 programs viewed via iOS (last week).
The iview website also continues to grow, recording the highest ever traffic and program plays last month. This record month is partly due to the iview first-run previews of the new Doctor Who series.

The Pixar Touch - Story Wisdom

The Pixar Touch - Story Wisdom | Story Clusters | Scoop.it

Pixar story artist Emma Coats has tweeted a series of “story basics” over the past month and a half — guidelines that she learned from her more senior colleagues on how to create appealing stories:

 

Hey, it's Friday! We could all use a pick-me-up and these short tweets about story crafting are just the nutritious snack food we could use right now. 

 

Full of wisdom and insight in small bite sizes -- just what my tired brain needs when my heart still wants some inspiration!

 

Have fun with these and keep them close -- they are real gems :)

We’re trying to do something that’s consistent with the Jay-Z brand,” Droga explains. “He does all these incredibly bold things in the music industry. He wants to do the same thing to the publishing industry. What’s bolder than putting every single page of your book out in the real world, so if someone wanted to read it or discover it, they don’t have to buy the book? He’s so confident that the story’s compelling, the reader will get so caught up in looking at this that they’ll want to buy the book.”

The new FlowPlayer Designer allows you to design and customize the look and branding of your own video player and then it generates the code to embed it on your web site.


If you publish video clips that are not publicly hosted (as when they are published on YouTube) but reside on your own server or on cloud services like Amazon S3, then you must have a video player to serve your video content on your site or private membership site.


With Flowplayer Designer you can integrate your own company logo, select between nine pre-designed looks, control the colors of the individual elements of the player and set what controls are visible and available to the final viewer.


Free to use.

You can also add branch out buttons to other video clips at any point inside your video to build multi-plot stories, guide and tutorials where the student can decide his own learning path. The branch-out buttons can take viewers to other clips or to whatever URL you may want to specify.


The final video can be easily shared on all major social media channels or embedded on any web site or blog.

The Role of Storytelling Through History

The Role of Storytelling Through History | Story Clusters | Scoop.it
From parables to fairy tales, stories have long reflected societal trends – and shaped those trends, too. Storytelling began as a way to pass the time when the sun went down and a way to share important lessons with peers or younger generations.

 

Although its format has changed over the years, the practice of storytelling – whether through bedtime stories or blog posts – still remains an integral piece of learning and teaching today.

How Brands Are Getting Personal Through Storytelling

How Brands Are Getting Personal Through Storytelling | Story Clusters | Scoop.it
A handful of brands have earned the trust of their target audience in a natural, organic way. Here are some tips on how to motivate your target using their story.

 

These days, smart advertisers are tying their brands into their customers’ personal stories. Or, more accurately, they’re helping their customer connect more deeply to his or her own personal story through the brand’s story.

 

Brands like Patagonia, Southwest Airlines and Apple have earned the trust of their target audience in a natural, organic way. Their customers don’t perceive “the story” they’re being told as marketing, but rather as a welcome outreach – like getting a thoughtful card from a good friend. So, if your advertising message doesn’t seem to be motivating your target, chances are your brand story isn’t jiving with your customer’s personal story.

Keeping Fans Engaged Between Series. How ABC US uses social media to launch new season of ‘Pretty Little Liars’ | Story Clusters | Scoop.it

Our strategy for the new season has been to keep the momentum going from the spring finale to the summer premiere, not letting a day go by without giving fans more content to be excited about. We revealed that Mona was “A” in the season finale, but we’ve been actively messaging via ABCFamily.com, Twitter and Facebook that the reveal of A was just the tip of the iceberg, and we don’t think “A” is gone forever. In fact, the tagline for the new season is “Time to Bring Your A Game” and the #AGame graphic is being featured in our on-air launch campaign. We’re having a lot of fun with “A” in the social space!
