Note: This video is at 640×240 resolution, so if you’re using Ant or a similar client, then drag/save the video to your desktop, and open it in native QuickTime. Otherwise you probably won’t be able to read the text. I’m told they’re working on it. 🙂
This is the first of what might be a series of videos about storytelling. I say might be, because it took 5 hours to make, my third longest to make so far.
Some people are natural storytellers, and some aren’t. Neither typically have any conscious idea what makes a good story, and how much a well constructed story can hold attention. In fact storytelling is a big fad at the moment in the corporate world, but I’ve yet to see any really good theoretical stuff from storytelling for business consultants. Anyway…
Hopefully I’ve also redeemed myself with Chris, from when I didn’t include him in my Video Killed the Radio Star video from earlier this year. Chris is a great story teller, and along with Josh and Ian, are masters of the Setup, as you’ll soon see.
