What’s Your Company Storyworld?

It has been a great few days at the IABC    World Conference, and I’ll be writing up highlights for the blog shortly.

Until then, here is the resource page for my session on Transmedia Storytelling for corporate communicators.

The slides are available on Slideshare.

The subject sparked some great conversations, and I want to keep that going. Leave a comment or get in touch with your thoughts about how you can tell your corporate story in a different way.

How storyboards shape your storytelling

Garr Reynolds, better known as PresentationZen is, alongside Nancy Duarte, one of the authorities on presenting and presentations. He posted recently on using storyboards to help craft your story and refine your message. He includes some excellent clips from Pixar’s Bug’s Life and Toy Story storyboard process.

A good storyboard artist is a good storyteller. The drawings do not have to be pretty, but they must have the meaning and the feelings behind the idea –  Garr Reynolds

One of the examples of the storyboarding process Garr includes shows the late Joe Ranft in the storyboard and pitching process for A Bugs Life.
