Storytelling for the Artist

April 02, 2012

The Artist – Michel Hazanavicius from Joe LaMattina on Vimeo.

Storytelling is our inspiration focus for this week. Everyone has their own story to tell and there are many different ways that artists choose to share their stories with an audience. Whether it is through the silent movie, creative lessons, poetry or even animation, each of these artists are storytellers in their own way. In the videos, Michel Hazanavicius and Andrew Stanton share what you need to be a good storyteller.

In addition, here is a really great article found via The Accidental Creative on Creative Lessons from Charles Dickens and Steve Jobs. and some poems by my friend Silvi – the Poetry Store Poet-one of the best storytellers I know.

Have a great week everyone and stay tuned for some more storytelling…
