THE VISUAL STORYTELLING PROJECT

 

Not all directors, screenwriters, filmmakers, teachers, bloggers, and photojournalists have learned the art of storytelling and know how to tell a story visually. New technology makes this possible with the advent of digital cameras easy to use software and outlets like YouTube to broadcast your message.

 

Visual Storytelling is a tool for creating compelling images, using montages, narration and music that allows the viewer to suspend belief and become totally immersed in its presentation. This is the tool that successful Directors, Filmmakers, Videographers; Bloggers, Reporters, Screen Writers and Producers must use to tell compelling stories.
