Authored By: Paul Taggart

Released On: 6/8/2016

Photography is a language, and while a single photo can be incredibly powerful, what's even more powerful is a series of photos that tells a story.

Most people think of news media when they think of photo essays. It's true that photo essays are one of the cores of photojournalism, but they're relevant in a lot of other ways, too—to document your family, the place where you live or work, or the business that your company conducts. The key is to think of a series of photos that work together to communicate your message.

In this course, photojournalist Paul Taggart outlines the fundamentals of shooting a photo essay, from thinking about your story photographically to presenting your final photo story.


Storytelling for Business Video

Authored By: Roger S.H. Schulman

Released On: 6/8/2016

When we want to communicate information that's meaningful to us, we usually tell a story. Human beings are storytelling animals. So if you want to communicate a message about your business, your product, or service via video, go the natural route: tell a story.

In Storytelling for Business Video, Roger S.H. Schulman shows the tools and techniques authors and screenwriters can use to make any business video clearer, more compelling, and more persuasive. These tips work equally well whether you're trying to sell a product or service or to simply establish brand awareness.

Roger examines the specific steps it takes to build an entertaining and memorable story, first looking at the various intersections between creative storytelling and marketing. Learn how to find the heroes (and maybe even the villains) of your story and use the three-act structure of Hollywood films to communicate the message of your business in a compelling way. Along the way, Roger builds a video script for a fictitious company step-by-step, and shows how storytelling techniques make the final script better in every way.
