Join Ashley Kennedy for an in-depth discussion in this video What is story?, part of Introduction to Video Editing.
- Stories have been shared for as long as people…have been able to communicate.…There are countless ways that stories can be told.…The oldest forms are oral…with people telling a narrative as others listen.…This can be as simple as recounting the day's events…or as layered as a legend passed from generation…to generation.…Other stories are visual.…From the very oldest cave paintings…to the artwork displayed throughout the museums of the world…to your child's crayon drawings on the refrigerator.…Writers also relay narrative via the written word…through any number of means.…
Novel, short story, essay, poem, play;…the list goes on.…Story can also be told via performance.…From plays put on in ancient Rome…to the most avant garde performances on stages today,…there are countless opportunities for stories to be shared…in front of audiences everywhere.…Each of these methods has been around…for thousands of years.…However, one of the most popular modern forms…of storytelling, storytelling through film making…has only been possible for a little over a century…
