About this blog

I call this blog Seeing Your Story because it’s about how to see–in your mind’s eye–and then shape the stories you want to tell visually on the Web. I believe you can learn how to see those stories for yourself. You can become what I call a “story seer.”

Inexpensive high-definition cameras + easy-to-use video editing software + distribution through YouTube and other sites make it practically effortless to create and circulate your stories. But will those stories be well-told, compelling tales? Will they accomplish your wishes in crafting them? Seeing Your Story can help you do just that.

What this blog is not: Seeing Your Story is not about the technology or techniques of shooting and editing. You can find plenty of information about those subjects elsewhere.

What this blog is: Seeing Your Story is a blog dedicated to encouraging you to dive in and make your videos. You may be working for a company that can’t spend big bucks getting its messages out; you may be volunteering for an organization that’s trying to make this a better world; you may be an individual with an idea for a documentary, a fiction project, or a family reunion video. My hope is that Seeing Your Story will offer something to all of you.

I think of myself as a “story seer.” I’ve been telling visual stories via TV, corporate video and websites for a long time. So stay tuned. I’ll have useful, even entertaining topics to blog about.
