The iPhone 6's New Camera Could Forever Change Filmmaking | Transmedia: Storytelling for the Digital Age | Scoop.it
The Digital Rocking Chair's insight:


Angela Watercutter:  "Amidst all the hoopla over the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus and their motion processors, faster CPUs, and larger screens, people are missing that Apple's latest smartphones are also a high-quality camera that filmmakers—or aspiring ones—can keep in their pockets."

You need to have an understanding of user experience and narrative.

Luca Brigada's curator insight, March 18, 2013 6:18 PM

 

Mc Million about storytelling: "As an interactive storyteller, you need to have an understanding of user experience, design and coding, but most importantly you have to understand what makes a strong narrative. [...] So while it’s helpful to understand the technology, it’s essential to understand how stories are consumed, generated, shared, repurposed and controlled by online audiences. I think it’s important for an interactive storyteller to give up a level of control and work with your team to discuss the number of ways a story should and could be told. Some stories are best told through video, while others may be more powerful through audio and photos [...]"
