Guest Speaker: Philip Wilson, Internet Sense - Digital Video Storytelling
Philip is an Audio Visual Producer. He works in the World of Digital Media and Digital video, the World of digital storytelling.
For tens of thousands of years people across the globe have been telling stories, grand tales, of warriors and demons.
Our modern World demands a new kind of story, stories with impact, stories that can be told succinctly and that can immediately grab attention.
Modern stories are told with modern ‘mediums’. They integrate with Facebook and Instagram. They can be monitored, measured and monetised.
In this short intro to digital storytelling, Philip introduces us to his world, to his story.
Like all good stories he starts at the beginning with concept, character creation, scripts and storyboards, through the making of the stories themselves and finishing with their deployment online.
Why not join us for a journey round Phil’s digital World??
Everyone loves a good story!
