Building stories

Everybody likes listening to a good story. Have you ever wondered why?

What do you think about this statement? Do you agree?
A story can put your whole brain to work.


This article may give you a few ideas on the power of storytelling. 



Which are, in your opinion, the main concepts?

What do you think about the suggestions for telling stories? Do you have any of your own?

There are a million ways in which we can tell a story. An interesting game to develop a number of skills is the following:

"This quasi experimental web site is designed to foster visual thinking and build stories. It draws upon collections of photos specified by a tag in flickr. You are dealt five random photos for each draw, and your task is to select one each time to add to a selection of images, that taken together as a final set of 5 images- tell a story in pictures."

Give it a try and then share your production.

As you know many stories have been told in video format. Here we have one which tells a lovely story. 

La Luna is a Pixar computer-animated short film, directed and written by Enrico Casarosa. It was nominated for an Oscar for Best Animated Short Film at the 84th Academy Awards.


Have a look at this beautiful short video. 


What is the story about? Is there a lesson to be learned?

Use one of the storytelling tools to tell the story, your way. It is a good opportunity to try a new tool
