A few chosen narrative examples, to uncover forms, inspire the soul and stir the creative spirits.
An augmentation of a scene from the film, Amadeus, wonderfully revealing the musical literacies of two artists working on what will become Confutatis. By adding these new visual aspects to an already existing work it reveals the hidden brilliance of the story and the characters impact. Bravo!
A further example of when new layers add more impact to an existing story narrative (the above is extended from the previous version). Another demonstration of how you can amplify an existing storyline with references of previous lore which serves the fandom deeply. Goosebumps.
As slightly different but with the same approach to augmenting a scene with additional content is the above. Speaking over a peculiar short piece of shaky footage from a musical festival, Derek Sivers adds a compendium of leadership insights in such a short space of time. So simple yet so effective.
All offered up to inspire, teach and make you smile / think.
