Although aimed at advertising agencies, this article is a great read for all storytellers.

Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's curator insight, December 17, 2012 6:29 AM

The Internet has given storytelling a new lease of life. The web series has given life to a new breed of film production, social networks have given us the ability to freely interact online with others, whether they are people, or companies and augmented reality has given us the chance to interact with characters and objects.


Here is a great artikel worth reading if you have anything to do with storytelling or just love it. @safegaard
