PSG Storytelling Workshop
Think Like A Filmmaker
Saturday, May 21, 2016
9:30 am – 12:30 pm
Presenter: Brianna Barrett
We will discover what movies can teach us about storytelling in the context of telling true-life, personal stories! Enhance your storytelling by thinking about it as a visual medium, exploring how film structure regulates pace to introduce conflict, establish locations and characters, and how those same techniques can be translated into building the world of your story.
We will also look at the benefits gained from filming our own rehearsal and performance videos, as well as the ‘how to’ of filming both informal and formal video projects.
2016 Sarah Hauser Festival of Stories
It is with pleasure that the Portland Storytellers’ Guild announces the renaming and dedication of our annual Festival of Stories after Sarah Hauser. Sarah was a long-time member of the guild, a much-loved storyteller and, in her capacity as president of the board, brought Festival of Stories into existence.
It is her vision that has carried Festival of Stories into this, our fifth year. We look forward to bringing this two night extravaganza of storytelling by ten of Portland’s finest tellers.
Reserve your seats now for Friday, June 10 and Saturday, June 11. This year we are offering a season pass for both nights as well individual performance tickets, with greater savings when you reserve online.
