Where’s the Story?

September 3, 2012 — Leave a comment

So I’m taking a class at CUNY called  Video for the Web.  We are tasked with completing a 2-3 minute profile piece at the end of the 5 week session.  At first I was like “I’m ready let’s go do it,” and then as I sat in the class I realized there is so much more that goes into telling a compelling story.   I have achieved some things by “flying by the seat of my pants” from time to time.  I guess now it’s called “acting as if.”  But I can’t fly if I want to get this right.  “Right” as in doing my absolute best.  I have tons to learn.  I know 5 weeks isn’t nearly enough time but,  I feel that this digging deeper into someone’s story and finding new ways to tell it is where I want to be.  So on that note I’m going to end this post with an excerpt from Ira Glass on Storytelling.
