Learn How to Become a Digital Influencer
How we tell our stories is changing. Media today must adapt to our content devices: our smartphones, our iPads and our other connected gadgets. That means that today’s digital storytellers need to use a variety of tools to create content through linear, non-linear, and live interactive productions delivered to a multitude of screens. Although the medium has changed, the basics of good storytelling have not. The best content creators still need to grab attention to get their messages across demonstrating good cinematography and post production skills.
