I’ve had very little experience with video storytelling. Most of my experiences include an interview style video for Veteran’s Day at work and helping a friend make a video for his FILM class. I have seen a lot of television and movies, and as a member of an audience, I am aware of the capabilities of digital storytelling.
The human species have always incorporated a visual element in storytelling. From drawing on cave walls to acting out Greek tragedies and Shakespeare to movies and television; in 3D and Smell-O-Vision. It’s an aspect of Show-Not-Tell where the phantom play of images tell the story and the dialogue fills in the holes and the music adds atmosphere.
The skill of video storytelling has a lot of skill sets, including scriptwriting, directing, composition, and editing. the main thing I want to learn about video storytelling is . . . everything. Editing, filming the right anglers directing the subject matter, as well as scriptwriting and story boarding are all things I want to learn.
