Storytelling Never Gets Old, But It Does Change…

The last few years have brought many changes to the business of telling stories. The internet, social and mobile have changed the 20th century media game for good.

It’s now all about where storytelling and modern audiences meet – often with the addition of new technology.

You might call these new ways to connect stories with audiences; Transmedia, Interactive, Social TV, Multiplatform, Convergence or any other buzzword that happens to be doing the rounds. But it’s still just stories and audiences – often in a Storyworld.

We’re working in exciting times. There are new frontiers and incredible opportunities to be had but it’s also difficult to maintain your business and career as a storyteller in the midst of so much change:

  • Technology moves ultra-fast
  • Funding is based around old school media business models
  • There is a lack of consistent new media success stories to learn from

But if you’re an innovator, early adopter, forward thinker and a storyteller then you’re in the right place here at Bellyfeel.

We write, publish and share content that addresses the problems of modern media business and highlights successful examples of when things go right.

It’s an ongoing conversation and one we’re glad to be in.

Our blog is the most viewed online resource about technology enabled storytelling and innovation in traditional media.

We post regularly on the blog, via the Storyworld email list and on our social sites and platforms.

On our other Bellyfeel websites we focus on  Interactive Digital Production and Transmedia  Expertise.

PS – Why are we called Bellyfeel?

Because as Stanley Kubrick once said,

The truth of a thing is the feel of it, not the think of it.”

As always, he was right!
