An Excerpt from Videojournalism – Chapter 1 Telling Stories | Mastering Film

An Excerpt from Videojournalism – Chapter 1 Telling Stories | Mastering Film | Recording Life Stories | Scoop.it

This chapter is about the many ways to tell a story and serves as an introduction to videojournalism as it relates to nonfiction storytelling. Videojournalism is not reality TV; it is not traditional front-page news articles. The secret to good videojournalism lies in finding and telling well-shaped, powerful stories in multimedia presentation. Most successful stories have a main character.

 

There are many ways to tell a story. You can do it chronologically— start at the beginning and end at the end. Or, you can disclose the most important piece of information first, and then reveal the rest of the story, bit by bit. You can tell the story through the eyes of your characters, or from the viewpoint of an outsider. As a videojournalist, you get to decide how you will tell your story—in a way that will compel your audience to stop, look, and listen.

Toolkit for Transmedia Storytellers | Marc Lougee

Toolkit for Transmedia Storytellers | Marc Lougee | Recording Life Stories | Scoop.it

The Transmedia LA Wiki is a current, cool place to glom onto useful tools, techniques and hard-won insights to help wend our way thru the labyrinth of Transmedia Project Creation.  The wiki serves to spread around what works/ doesn’t work for transmedia storytelling via an open dialogue. Transmedia production in particular requires a specialized brand of Know How, so open discussion/ dialogue covering the good/ not so good techniques will hopefully stymie much ‘re-invention of the wheel’.

 

Here’s the type of resources awaiting on the other end of the Transmedia LA Wiki: 

gaming, publishing, social media, technology, transmedia, and writing.

Ira Glass is a rock star. So say Sydneysiders, who queued around the block to get in to the sold out event at the Sydney Festival.

 

Glass, host of American public radio show This American Life, was here to present an evening of ‘Reinventing Radio’.  Glass’s stock in trade is storytelling, and the nuggets of wisdom he had to impart, sprinkled with humour and stories of his own, were applicable across a range of media, particularly documentary.

Hidden Memory: From Family History Project To Performance Piece | National Storytelling Network Blog

Hidden Memory: From Family History Project To Performance Piece | National Storytelling Network Blog | Recording Life Stories | Scoop.it

In my family, we never told stories about the past – what it was like for my grandparents to sail from Japan to the United States, the early days in Oregon with the family grocery store, the terrible time following the attack on Pearl Harbor, or the experience of living behind barbed wire in an incarceration camp during World War II.

 

It wasn’t until I was in my fifties that I started to ask the questions. I decided to make a family photobook and I got lucky.

SoundCloud Hits 10 Million Users, Launches Instagram Storytelling |

SoundCloud Hits 10 Million Users, Launches Instagram Storytelling | | Recording Life Stories | Scoop.it

Not even two years after reaching 1 million users, social audio service SoundCloud announced today that it has surpassed the 10 million user mark. The Berlin-based company has risen to become a major force in audio content creation and sharing on the Web, becoming a sort of "YouTube for audio" used by musicians, journalists and pretty much anybody with a need to record and share their own audio files.

 

To celebrate the milestone, the four-year-old startup has released an audio slideshow storytelling app called Story Wheel. It uses the Instagram API to grab a set of pictures, from which you can select the ones you want and order them. Once the photos are arranged, a brief narrative can be recorded in the browser. The end result is a shareable photo slideshow annotated by you.
