This year at NAB the FreshDV team did several videos in a series called Conversations with Filmmakers And while all these videos are great, I really enjoyed this one in particular. I have to admit that when I read the title I rolled my eyes. The word “Story” is such a buzz word that is used by hypocritical self proclaimed “filmmakers” we are quick to talk about how to tell a good story but then produce little to none ourselves (myself included). So it was very refreshing to hear some thoughts on story from down to earth guys who produce great work.
What do you think makes a great story? And how can you implement that in your next piece?
