Time and location subject to change (what isn’t?)

Really powerful teams are super visual thinkers, communicators and story tellers. They relentlessly travel across the visual storytelling landscape, creating both real and virtual artifacts of their journey, ranging from sketches, drawings, digital images and in some cases all the way to prototypes. But in our on-line world things are accelerating at hyper speed towards a new destination.

In this powerful session we’ll cross this visual story telling landscape and see how it all fits together, arriving at this new destination — the land of “WeTube”, a place where teams explore telling their stories with video. With nothing more than your cell phone you’ll create short video clips using the fundamental video techniques of lighting, sound and, yes, even editing. We’ll also look at story structure and what makes good content for videos.

So bring your phone (or digital camera) and get ready to have a real collaborative video experience at “WeTube”.

The Skinny: 3 things you will do in this session

  • Learn that, when it comes to video, Motion is Emotion
  • See that a video is 50% its sound track
  • Learn the central secret of video storytelling greatness: don’t tell it if you can show it
