Turning Your Writing into Cinematic Narrative
The digital age is giving us extraordinary new ways to tell stories. In the emerging media landscape, writers, journalists, and photojournalists can create immersive stories using sound and images and experiment with unprecedented, new ways to tell stories. In this workshop we’ll look very closely at one piece to explore how you can develop long-form, in-depth visual stories that create an impact on a subject, issue, and hopefully society. With the skills you gain you’ll be able to bring new dimensions to the stories you are creating and reach a wider audience.
