Breaking Down The Story
Introducing Craig Norris and VideoBand Productions
We have all heard about the doom and gloom in regards to the environment and climate change, but what would get us engaged to be a part of the solution? Many have tried to spur us into action or at least gain our attention (some more successfully than others). One way we can take any heavy subject more interesting is to convey the facts in the way of a story. So, what makes a story captivating? Today’s Boiling Point guest is showing us how to take big problems, break them into smaller problems, and turn them into an engaging story.
Craig Norris is a previous Boiling Point guest and is back with us this week to bring us up-to-date with what he has been up to. Since we last spoke to Craig, he and his company VideoBand Productions have been busy creating engaging stories that tackle real environmental problems. Craig’s “secret sauce” in creating intriguing content that is both entertaining and educational is fairly simple. He looks to tell a story where you find an interesting person in an interesting place doing something interesting. Using this formula in his recent film, Kokota: The Islet of Hope, Craig was honoured with three awards, including Best Short Film on Sustainability at the world’s largest eco film festival, The DC Environmental Film Festival.
Check out this episode of the Boiling Point to see how you could make your next story something truly great.
