THERE IS NO OTHER WAY
This episode is more practical. It's about how to learn anything, including how to tell a story. There's really only one way, which is by doing it! And taking action means we we have to experience failure sometimes too.
A GOOD STORY, WELL-TOLD
Five essential elements that make up an engaging story. How do we measure what makes a story good? Is it still good if it isn't well-told? We talk about stories that are one but not the other and how we can try to achieve both the "good story" and "well-told" parts. There is a responsibility both on the part of the artist/creator and the audience.
WELCOME & WHY STORIES MATTER
What is a story? Why is storytelling important? How do we tell good stories? We created Story Forum to provide a space for discussion about the answers to these questions, and specifically how they apply to filmmakers and artists. We'll introduce a new principle each week, talk about it on the podcast, and give you a challenge to apply that principle to whatever you're working on. We'd love to see what you create and hear your thoughts!
