SPLAT! I Just dropped my ice-cream: the role of emotion in storytelling

13:20 Fountain Room - Ground Floor

Research shows that the stronger you convey emotion in your video, the more likely your audience will react to it (hopefully in the way you anticipated). When something makes us ‘feel,’ it cuts through the noise and connects, it moves us. Learning how to focus on emotion in your storytelling is crucial for success.

This session will cover…

  • The magic of the ‘story, emotion and video’ combination
  • What is the ‘feeling’ filter and why you should care
  • Examples of home runs and complete wipeouts with emotional storytelling
