The story of storytelling
The SBS catchphrase says it all, “6 billion stories and counting”. And with so many stories to tell there is no doubt that there are also billions of different ways to tell a story.
I love this presentation about storytelling. It takes you through quotes from cinematic storytellers, philosphers, branding experts and from the now 7 billion on every day life. Each quote tells its own story, with a carefully chosen visual to support the idea. And the sum of the quotes tells the story of storytelling – its power, relevance and impact.
“Great stories happen to those who can tell them.”
“To be a person is to have a story to tell.”
“Stories have power. They delight, enchant, touch, teach, recall, inspire,motivate, challenge. They help us understand. They imprint a picture onour minds. Consequently, stories often pack more punch than sermons. Want to make a point or raise an issue? Tell a story.”
