The Art of Digital Storytelling and Video – My Story

Watch on YouTube:The Art if Digital Storytelling.

We love stories, everything is going digital, and video is the most compelling and persuasive way to share a message.

Why should you learn the art of digital storytelling and video? Because people like to watch videos, and when you blend strong visuals with emotion, and tell a compelling story, people will move.

It doesn’t have to be complicated, flashy, or slick. It always helps to be entertaining, and humorous, but simple and authentic works too.

When done right, your viewers will connect with you and begin to trust you as an authority.

Video has a way of making you larger than life, and even if it’s on the web, you can become a “celebrity” of sorts, even if it’s within a niche community.

My fascination with video spans back to when I was a youngster growing up in East Palo Alto, California.
