Here is a video about story telling which I found. I found this text for educational, it taught me a lot about the basic fundamentals of story telling. For our documentary we will have to think carefully about how we want to convey the narrative. Timing, sounds, and visual will be so important in our text. The lady spoke about the relationship between the story teller and the audience and how we have to engage the audience so that they will engage with us. I really believe in this. I feel lime we have access out target audience, study them, and then engage them. Not only in the actual text but before this. In the way of marketing, posters, trailers, and so fourth.
She spoke about the various elements of story telling:
- Voice (This will be our mode or style)
- Gestures (This will be influenced by editing)
