Story, Plot and Narrative

The art and science of telling stories for this digital age

This FOUNDATIONAL course helps you go beyond relaying what happened to TELLING A STORY WELL. Although called “digital” storytelling, greater emphasis is placed on SCRIPTING. Digital Storytelling, sometimes called “the baby brother of filmmaking,” is a non-geek storyteller’s doorway into the wonderful world of turning stories into multimedia. The Digital Storytelling process is useful for:

  • First-person stories (stories told from the storyteller’s point-of-view)**
  • Articulating an Organisation’s Brand Story
  • Team Building
  • And much more

Your Workshop Project

At the workshop, you will tell a story – it could be a personal story or work related story. .

In the process of creating your masterpieces, enter the world of stories where the storytellers and listeners are allowed to enter the mind, heart and emotions of human experience. Be it a personal story or a business story, we are all people who want to relate with people. Laugh. Cry. Live.

Creating your story will also bring clarity on Story, Plot and Narrative. You will also understand the process of putting a video together. Very useful knowledge when you are in Corporate Comms and need to work with the videographer/media producer you have outsourced your video project to.

Here are two very different kinds of digital stories created at a Tyros Workshop
