  • Future of Storytelling | Story(Us)
    way from the Iliad to the assassination of President Lincoln and these stories have always bound nations and peoples together Today though online and mobile platforms combined with a diverse and amplified media environment have allowed everyday people to capture these experiences and share them with an audience on a scale never before possible turning almost anyone into a potential generator of content At the same time other new technological platforms are giving professional storytellers journalists curators artists graphic designers and others more power than ever to harness those stories to create a larger cohesive narrative That act of harnessing and shaping many disparate individual narratives into something greater than the sum of its parts is what collaborative storytelling is Collaborative storytelling in turn can become the foundation for an entirely new kind of interpretive experience like the one Jake Barton and his colleagues at Local Projects have created for the National September 11 Museum and Memorial in New York City Jake Barton s bio Jake Barton is a principal and the founder of Local Projects America s foremost media designers for museums and public spaces Local Projects was selected to create the media design for the National September 11 Memorial and Museum in New York an undertaking for which Barton and his colleagues collected hundreds of thousands of individual firsthand accounts to create an unprecedented collaborative museum experience Jake s firm has also created media designs for most recently the Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum and the Frank Gehry designed Eisenhower Presidential Memorial and has developed Change By Us a platform for community based advocacy in major cities including New York and Philadelphia Local Projects has also created marketing installations for GE Microsoft JetBlue and the Beijing Olympic Games Jake has lectured at the Wired UK Conference in London

  • Future of Storytelling | Dr. Paul Zak: Empathy, Neurochemistry, and the Dramatic Arc
    Dr Zak a founding pioneer in the emerging field of neuroeconomics closely monitored the neural activity of hundreds of people who viewed Ben s story What he discovered is that even the simplest narrative if it is highly engaging and follows the classic dramatic arc outlined by the German playwright Gustav Freytag can evoke powerful empathic responses associated with specific neurochemicals namely cortisol and oxytocin Those brain responses in turn can translate readily into concrete action in the case of Dr Zak s study subjects generous donations to charity and even monetary gifts to fellow participants By contrast stories that fail to follow the dramatic arc of rising action climax denouement no matter how outwardly happy or pleasant those stories may be elicit little if any emotional or chemical response and correspond to a similar absence of action Dr Zak s conclusions hold profound implications for the role of storytelling in a vast range of professional and public milieus Dr Paul Zak s bio William Casebeer is an expert on the neurobiology of narratives He joined DARPA Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency in August 2010 and has led a series of workshops to stimulate discussion and research on how stories exert a powerful influence on human thoughts behavior and neurochemistry Dr Paul J Zak is the country s leading pioneer in the field of neuroeconomics which studies the neurochemical roots of human decision making in the context of economic behavior He is the founding director of the Center for Neuroeconomic Studies at Claremont Graduate University in Claremont California and a professor of neurology at Loma Linda University Medical Center in Loma Linda California He has degrees in mathematics and economics from San Diego State University a Ph D in economics from the University of Pennsylvania and post doctoral training in

  • Future of Storytelling | Dreams of Dalí
    creates all these surreal worlds and we thought it would be amazing if we could put people inside of his paintings And then as we started researching and going through the production after we got the idea we were like wait we don t want to also replicate this painting in virtual reality We don t want to replicate Dalí It would make more sense if we could just imagine what was in his mind before going through the brush strokes What was he thinking How that world that he saw and everything that he did would look like in reality not just as paint VS How did you choose the painting RB What s cool about that painting is that he actually has figures looking at the statues and then we were like this is great we can actually go to where these guys are And then I looked at the quotes that Dalí wrote about the painting and he said that he surrendered himself to a brief fantasy in which he saw the figures in the middle of Millet s Angelus made out of the highest rocks And we thought wow that s what we were looking for We wanted to see as he saw Basically that showed us that he imagined a real place and that little canvas and those brush strokes were his way to express it He wanted people to see it like he saw it So it was the painting in the collection that gave us a glimpse of what his vision was VS Had any of you done any projects in VR before this one RB This is our first VR project but we ve done a lot of digital projects in the past for many different clients One thing led to another We are very familiar with the digital world so the VR experience was just waiting for us to try to do something with it SL It s something that we always try to do to do something that hasn t been done When Twitter first came out we did lots of things with Twitter Last year we did something that was basically animating Photoshop layers to see how it would look So VR kind of felt like it was just waiting to be done the right way It is a passive way of looking at art but it s a very engaged way of thinking about storytelling You are inside Dalí s mind and as you walk around you learn more and more about him If you know how to do it boring So we are always looking to take steps that we don t know where we can go and discover it along the way This job was one of those things because it was a completely new platform Luckily I feel like we nail it VS I know Roger just from looking online that you ve worked as a copywriter since 2004 So I m curious to hear
