Dr. Karen Dietz's curator insight, February 1, 6:07 PM

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is taking over significant parts of storytelling. Here's how:

 

In this post, Jamie Carter writes for TechRadar about the 5 different ways AI is doing storytelling.

 

There's everything from apps helping you to write better based on AI's natural language processing, to creating emotional arcs that now accurately predict emotional engagement. Read more in Carter's article.

 

It's happening now -- and fast. Movie makers and news organizations are using AI today. Marketing professionals are catching up fast, if not already there. 

 

So if machines are taking over both functional (story structures) and emotional areas of storytelling, where does that leave humans?

 

AI can be a great assist in storytelling. But people will still have to stand and deliver. Oh, wait...is that a robot up on The Moth stage??!!

Kent Bye:  "Conflict and growth is the heart of drama, and a lot of films and video games use the trope of external combat to express this. But Rob [Morgan] sees the potential to explore stories in VR and AR that are much more about internalized emotional conflicts within the main protagonist / player of the experience."

Dr. Karen Dietz's curator insight, February 20, 11:29 AM

Want to know how to do great storytelling on your website? Well, using a parallax layout is one way and here's a post that lists the most effective 11 examples.

 

I'm periodically asked about telling stories on websites, so these examples should spark some ideas -- whether you use parallax or not.

 

While it's true that most of these examples are educational and not necessarily focused on business, that doesn't mean you can't make the translation. Think about one of your signature stories -- maybe your brand story about how your business got started and why, and then how that translated into a unique offering in the marketplace.

 

Hmmm....something to think about.

"Kate Santore took the stage at Content Marketing World to share Coca-Cola’s storytelling ethos – and in the process inspired marketers to ask, “What if?”

 

“Sharing our strategies and approach to marketing has been a tradition at Coca-Cola to open the door for other brands to learn from our 130 years of marketing experience,” Kate says. “Sharing this ‘thought-ware’ collectively raises the bar for every brand and therefore makes us strive for bigger, better, bolder.”"

Kim Zinke (aka Gimli Goose)'s curator insight, February 16, 7:51 PM

Some of the stand-out storytelling points from the video were:

  • We begin every brief with a storytelling thought-starter question “what if?” This gives us a jumping-off point to push ourselves to ask daring questions.
  • We're looking for coca-cola stories, not stories by coca-cola.
  • One of the building blocks of our stories - be the star of your own show.
  • There are 4 key characters they coca-cola can play - embodiment of an attitude, functional offering or benefit, social connector, object of desire
  • We ask, if we took coca-cola out of the story, could the story still be told?  If yes, then it's not a story we want to tell.
  • Craft stories that take space in the hearts & minds of consumers - following Maya Angelou's saying "it's not what you say, it's how you make them feel"
  • Lens we tell stories through - democratic, inclusive, and relentlessly optimistic.
  • It's a universal story - Coke tastes the same wherever you go

Storytelling in Virtual Reality: The Basics

Storytelling in Virtual Reality: The Basics | EL HILO CONDUCTOR | Scoop.it

I’m a storyteller by trade. Story is everything. The stories we tell — and how we tell them — inform who we are and who we become. I’m invested in ethics and education, in individuals equipping themselves to navigate a market designed to fool them. More even than informed decision-making, I’m invested in fostering creativity and the courage to explore new art forms, to find new ways to build connections with each other.


Virtual reality has so much raw power — and now more than ever, we need a reminder of what Uncle Ben told Peter.


As somebody who’s found himself uniquely situated to discuss the intersection of writing, storytelling structure, and virtual reality, I want to share some of the basic ideas I’ve learned (from making content and building a creation tool in the medium) to empower a new crop of filmmakers and storytellers to take the leap toward producing their own narrative adventures in VR....

Virtual Reality (VR) storytelling is a hot topic today, and this article talks about the latest research in immersive storytelling.

 

It's one thing to use VR at IKEA or Lowe's home improvement stores to test out furniture and designs. It's quite another to share a story in VR. This post shares insights gained from recent research about what works and what doesn't in VR storytelling.

 

Stuff like:

  1. What is the audience's role in VR? It's fascinating what they discover!
  2. How does the position you stand in and the engagement you have in VR impact the effect of the story?
  3. What do visual constraits have on the story experience?

 

VR is a medium that truly changes storytelling. There are lots of opportunities and lots of pitfalls/dangers. Read this article to keep up to date on this trend.

Quote "Story first. There are great differences in approach for production in immersive journalism, live streaming, sports, documentary and animation. For our purposes, we are going to be considering narrative drama or comedy. Remember, you are working with an entirely different medium that actually can fool the brain and the body physically and emotionally into what is called “presence.” This places the viewer in the environment that the characters are experiencing, can allow the viewer to stand in the shoes of a specific character, or even change characters."
