  • 4. What’s  not  a  story  •  A  person  is  not  a  story  •  A  place  is  not  a  story   –  Those  are  topics   –  A  story  shows  the  challenges  that  occur  to  a   person  or  place  over  *me.

  • 9. Stories  must  be  visual  •  In  the  video/mul*media  world,  stories  must   be  able  to  be  shown  in  a  visual  world.      •  Have  you  ever  read  a  book  and  then  seen  the   movie  and  been  disappointed?
