In conjunction with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, Mediatettix's Tony Maniaty and former Executive Producer of ABC TV's Australian Story, Deborah Fleming AO, will be conducting video storytelling workshops in October / November 2017 for ABC News producers around Australia.
For two decades, the award-winning Australian Story has been one of Australia's top-rating programs. Tony Maniaty helped devise the program concept and Deb Fleming helmed the show for 19 years through season after successful season.
These one-day workshops will draw on their long experience and highlight the essential ingredients of a well-told video story, employing techniques from classic cinema, drama and literature along with examples from contemporary media.
Storytelling is an art that transcends technology, yet can use the power of many platforms and outlets - TV, radio, social media, promotion, marketing - to reach new audiences in new ways.
We'll be posting reports from the ABC workshops on the MT blog - of interest to organisations wanting to improve their narrative skills and needing to elevate their service/product story to the next level.
