1935-1943

Federal photographs taken were distributed by the agency to newspapers and magazines to build support for the government’s New Deal rural programs.

 

Story?

How can we tell better stories?

Can you identify a famous “story” in the media recently?

 

Story Basics

 

A story with visuals, motion, sound???

Cinematic Theory The “Voice” of the storyteller (instructional designer). Applying media elements: motion, visual, audio, timing/presentation in a particular way to tell the story.

Call up a friend…

Wheee! Movie Night! I love movie night!

Acting is all about honesty. If you can fake that, you've got it made. George Burns

I want to make people cry even when they don't understand my words. Edith Piaf

Every time I get a script it's a matter of trying to know what I could do with it. I see colors, imagery . It has to have a smell. It's like falling in love. -Paul Newman eLearning Guild Learning Solutions, Edge and Emotion What eLearning Programs are Missing , Oct. 27, 2008

 

Throw things at them, hurl them off a cliff, or pull them into a dangerous love story, and they know that nothing will happen to them.  Use characters to tease and pull them along to their goals. 1. It’s for the audience.

Particular uses of visuals, sound, motion, should involve knowing what emotions you want the audience to experience at a particular time.  2. See, hear, motion the emotion. A close-up will fill the screen with emotion, and pulling away to a wide angle shot will dissipate that emotion.  A sudden cut from wide to close-up will show a sudden surprise.  A strange angle will heighten the dramatic meaning. Give a visual perspective or camera view “through another’s eyes” to involve the audience. Montage, a sequencing technique in which a series of short shots

3. A little less conversation, a little more action Keep it conversational and short! You don’t have to tell everyone everything. Show a smile, disappointment…voice “inflections” in narration…a little sarcasm, humor, can help get the point across… See blog.cathy-moore.com for ideas Writing Ideas: http://blog.cathy-moore.com/?cat=9#SlideFrame_1

4. Twists, Tension, and Timing Have some things happen at once. Visuals move faster on screen to show tension…create pace. Games…

Chaotic sounds, unsettling, busy visual motion creates early tension, can’t hear…”something is wrong” feeling.

THE BIRDS (See YouTube)

POV in courtroom; can’t “see” stranger but others can…seems mysterious, questionable; Close ups, Ingrid’s view after some drinks

The next day POV: Close up with drink; cut to strange angles sense dizziness
