Following from last week I continue with my research on the documentary storytelling with some additional information about its structure.
I am planning to use the study leave for deeper research of the technology around 360 filming and documentary storytelling. To do that I’ve put in my schedule few courses on Lynda.com and also booked a camera from the Media Loan shop to try film and edit 360 video.
The first course I enrol is called ‘Introduction to documentary video storytelling’ and below are the guiding points which I found useful for my research.
Inspiring, Motivating, Constructive
About person, group of people or organization
Showing some kind of contribution
Something which can have impact on the society
The script – interesting way to show considering the technology
Different ways to gain attention – sound effects
What I love to do?
