The Future of Storytelling
Since the inception of TED (Technology, Entertainment and Design), it seems our world has changed a little. The spread of ideas, which TED so eloquently endorses through its brand, has created a kind of system that influences global culture in the most intelligent and creative way. It has stimulated many people to look beyond the conventions of a box, to finally open the lid and experience different thoughts and concepts. And it is within these thoughts and concepts that we find ourselves questioning the boundaries of what we know and what we want to know.
These conferences are like stories, told through the medium of technology and observation. And the secret of every successful storyteller is that he or she comes in with a unique perspective and imaginative thought. So today we decided to show case three talks that we felt carried forward the message of creativity, culture and the future of storytelling…
The first talk is by Pixar director/writer, Andrew Stanton. He is the creator of popular animation films likeWALL- E, Finding Nemo and the Toy Story series. His talk takes you through the amazing journey of cinematic storytelling and is titled – The Clues to a Great Story.
Our second talk, given by Artist Raghava KK looks into the future; and helps us create an extraordinary plan, not the conventional five years plan, instead a 200 year plan (and don’t we all need it). The talk helps us question our present choices in order to create an amazing plan for the future.
Last but not the least, we let Joe Sabia investigate new ways to tell stories – meshing viral videos and new display technologies with old-fashioned narratives, Sabia shows us how new technology has always helped us tell our own stories, from the walls of caves to pop-up books and now to his own onstage iPad._
