Every film, every music video, every commercial, every series, every short film is written down before being produced.

We do so because every story follows certain rules, which I summed up in my speakerbox "The Basics of Storytelling". As a video editor, I am guided by the storyline whenever I edit (the material) so that the audience will be able to follow along and feel the message behind my/our work.

When a story is introduced, there are so many questions in the viewer’s head, that need to be answered. As the storyteller I have to put myself in their position, not knowing what to expect, and put together the content pieces into a complete story. It all starts with the characters. Who are the characters? What is their goal? What’s in their way? What is drama? What is the conflict? How do you tell stories without dialogue? How does the story begin? And how does it end? The starting point to all this is almost always the written word in the form of a screenplay or concept.

But we also tell stories in everyday life, sometimes consciously, sometimes unconsciously. We make movies, we take photographs, write articles and tweet to each other… the list goes on. The power of a story lays in its ability to connect people on an emotional level.

In my speakerbox, I spoke about the basics of storytelling in feature film and short film and clarify what role Pixar and their 22 rules play in it. Pixar has a well-crafted way to tell their stories. As an animation studio, they have to think about their characters and their expressions in every detail. That is one reason why they care a lot about the internal conflicts, wants and needs of every single character. That way Pixar is a great example when it comes to storytelling.

After my talk, I invited the team to reflect on their perception of different storytelling concepts and we discussed new approaches to storytelling. I hope they got a new perspective of the art of storytelling from it and use it as a craft to create all different kind of images and texts.

Passion makes all the difference

We love to go the extra mile… to go two steps back before we go three steps forward. To think around the corner. To hustle harder for the best outcome.
