I’m fascinated with this idea of making better vlogs using storytelling.
Finding a story that is interesting or entertaining or which will hook and retain a viewer in one’s ordinary, everyday life.
There must be a story, no matter how trivial or apparently inconsequential. And I want it to have 3 acts, as in the classic 3 act structure involving:
- Set up
I have been thinking and writing about story for a long time and telling a story appears to be an easy task. But it’s not.
To keep things simple for me I want to copy Casey Neistat’s method.
It may not be the best now, it’s time may have passed. But it is a structure that I understand and can relate to.
There are other guys and gals doing vlogs and doing them with varying degrees of success.
But the 3-act structure is a sound framework on which to hang any story. And it seems to me to be a simplified version of Shakespeare’s method of using Freytag’s pyramid to tell compelling stories.
It will do for me.
