Cinematics: Introductory Film Storytelling Techniques
Since the 1890s, the motion picture has grown as a force in storytelling but few oral tellers use the techniques of this medium. What can we learn from film? This workshop introduces tellers to advanced elements of storytelling culled from basic cinematic techniques. We will focus on framing the narrative, using sound, diegetic cognition and the “other” senses. Come prepared to work and explore how filmic components contribute to top-notch telling.
