Storytelling Techniques with Video – We Can All Relate to a Story

    Storytelling is one of the oldest and most popular ways of passing down information from generation to generation. Not only does this include visual storytelling in the form of pictures, collages and storyboards, but now video is making a huge entrance into the world of storytelling. What’s great about visual storytelling is that it elicits an emotional response easier than pictures do.

    Storytelling is a more succinct way to get your information across to the public in the form of a commercial, PSA (public service announcement), or other video mediums. Also, video is a great way to inform your audience about your business without bombarding viewers with needless information, which could cause them tune out.
