Kate Abrosimova:  "The craft of storytelling is experiencing a sea-change in its development. Putting a viewer in the event directly with the help of virtual reality technology is what journalists are likely to be doing in the next decade."

Minna Kilpeläinen's curator insight, January 12, 4:35 PM

If journalists want to raise real awareness of what is going on in the world, they can´t just offer the audience facts and images.  They also have to give possibilities to feel the reality. Nonny de la Peña´s Project Syria is a great example of it.

Alex Billington:  '"We all love stories. We're born for them," says filmmaker Andrew Stanton (of Finding Nemo, Toy Story, Wall-E, John Carter) in this video that celebrates everyone who's ever had an idea, picked up a camera, or searched for a way to bring their story to life.'

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, March 3, 2014 11:20 AM

Google's wonderful Storytellers Ad celebrates more than storytellers.  It celebrates the fact that previously specialized knowledge is available to everyone, liberating not just creativity but the belief that we can all tell our stories and people will listen.  The ad uses the narrative from Andrew Stanton's TEDTalk on storytelling, few people explain the fundamental nature of humans as storytellers better.
