9 Creative Storytelling Methods

9 Creative Storytelling Methods | Transmedia: Storytelling for the Digital Age | Scoop.it


The Digital Rocking Chair's insight:


Eli Epstein:  "When an author set out to tell a story in years past, he or she typically did so on paper, a typewriter or by typing at a computer. But today, storytellers find imaginative ways to share their ideas with interactive and visual elements. On modern mediums like Twitter, Vine, YouTube and other mobile applications, storytellers are crafting tales in ways that would have been unfathomable a decade ago."

How the Smartphone Ushered In a Golden Age of Journalism | Transmedia: Storytelling for the Digital Age | Scoop.it


The Digital Rocking Chair's insight:


Frank Rose:  "When I first arrived in New York, some time back in the last century, I gazed in awe and fascination at subway riders reading The New York Times. Thanks to a precise and universally adopted method of folding the paper (had it been taught in schools?), they could read it and even turn its pages without thrusting them in anyone else's face. The trick? Folding those big, inky broadsheets into neat little rectangles—roughly the same size, in fact, as an iPad." ...

A fresh look a news. The reporting and spreading of news. But, it seems, still emphasizing the same boring 'Masters of the Universe.' 

Roger Ellman's curator insight, August 7, 6:53 AM

Moving forward - there's every reason to adapt and adopt. Like vinyl records and old photographic film, some old media methods will become a collectors (small audience) market, leaving mainstream media in the new delivery vehicles of our day today, and tomorrow's (there's the trick, working out what THEY will be!).

Players control an athlete named "Qwop" using only the Q, W, O, and P keys)
