Rodrigo leaned toward the visual side of storytelling early on. “I did a lot of still photography,” recounted the Harvard alumnus who went on to enroll at the American Film Institute Conservatory. “I was very interested in black and white photography, lab work and everything. After college, I started thinking about becoming a cameraman. This was before the explosion of film schools everywhere. I worked my way up – camera loader, intern, second assistant, first assistant, focus puller, operator, all that… Eventually, I did mostly commercials.”

Hiding in Plain Site: The Storyteller as an Introvert

Hiding in Plain Site: The Storyteller as an Introvert | Story Route | Scoop.it

Sounds familiar to me: "If you watch me perform on stage, you’d likely consider me confident, passionate, and articulate. Yet, pull me up on stage as myself and the extrovert completely disappears. I clam up, sweat profusely, and sometimes stutter."

The advocate as storyteller | Canadian Lawyer Magazine

The advocate as storyteller | Canadian Lawyer Magazine | Story Route | Scoop.it

The importance of storytelling struck me while observing a senior criminal lawyer address a jury. He didn’t pound the table. He didn’t bore the jury with irrelevant details. Instead, he set out a simple narrative in a confident and reassuring voice. The facts tumbled from him slowly but effortlessly. In an understated way, he conveyed his passion for the case with rhythm and intonation. Listening to him reminded me of the feeling I had as a child hanging onto every word of a story, not wanting it to end.

The Importance of Storytelling | Story Route | Scoop.it

Stories are just one way to transmit ideas from one person to another; nevertheless, people still get attracted to stories. They try to discover their way of life through stories because tales provide the meaning and context to what would otherwise be a collection of easily "forgettable facts."

If Steve Jobs Had Applied His Talents To Energy And Climate Change | Fast Company

If Steve Jobs Had Applied His Talents To Energy And Climate Change | Fast Company | Story Route | Scoop.it

One of the biggest failures of the environmental and climate change movement has been its lack of proper storytelling. One of the best attempts to tell the story about climate change was Al Gore's Inconvenient Truth book and movie project. I have to give him props for raising awareness of climate change by trying to explain, sometimes with some technological wizadry, why the climate is changing and why humans are partially to blame.


However, if Steve Jobs were Al Gore, he would have done this completely differently. He would not try to scare people with the doom and gloom of climate change. If Steve Jobs wanted to change the dialogue and collective consciousness about this challenge, he would have done it in a way that inspires optimism and excitement about the convenient solutions that will make our lives better.
