If you don't know about This American Life from Chicago Public Radio shame on you. Go there now and listen to one story, it doesn't matte which one. There is craftsmanship. There is a connection.
There is Ira Glass.
For those of us trying to create narrative videos we need to listen to him every chance we get when he talks about storytelling. Fortunately the videos that were posted on Current.tv (Where I can't find them, really I searched.) are posted on YouTube.
This is the first video on junking the rules you were taught. Really this will help you make better videos. It doesn't matter the tool that you use, pencil, typewriter, computer or camera what matters is the story.
