According to the author, 'Each one of the contributors has been handpicked to take part in Inside The Story. They’ve been chosen because they are behind some of the most remarkable digital storytelling on the web and beyond. From the acclaimed California Is A Place series, to MediaStorm’s A Darkness Visible feature and many more inbetween. Almost all of the people you’ll read have won awards for their work, including Emmys, BAFTAs and Webbys.
Each contributor has been tasked with sharing advice you don’t read anywhere else. They’ve revealed secrets of the craft that they’ve discovered through hard-won experience alone. And they’ve been given just 200 words to do it. It might not seem like much, but it focuses the mind and their words. This is a book free from waffle.
Most of all, this book is about quality. It’s about creating remarkable non-fiction stories that resonate with audiences, surprise and entertain, and connect people to distant, complex issues. All of the contributors produce stories that do just that, and they’re going to tell you how they do it.
This isn’t about the basics. It assumes you know how to use equipment, and have had a go at telling a story, however successfully, before. However, even if you’re a complete beginner, you’ll still find this an inspiring guide.
In a world where anyone can pick up a camera, start filming and publishing, the only way to stand out is through the hot pursuit of quality over mediocrity; to tell remarkable stories in a remarkable way. Think of this book as an easy to read readyreference to help you do that.'
