ACTIVITY 3  |  Playing with flow

Watch the video with the guidelines

 Think of a story you’ve told recently at work. Maybe this is a recent project you wrapped up. Storyboard your story with these cards (print out). Lay this storyboard out on your desk. You don’t have to use all these prompts, but please try to use more than three.

3b. Record a 2 minutes video of yourself telling the story.
Remember mistakes are allowed so don’t spend too much time on crafting a perfect video.
Structure your video with the following content:

A/ Tell your respective story

B/ Look back at your storyboard. Move some pieces around. What happens if you move the conclusion to the front? What if you remove some extraneous sections? Was something missing?

C/ Rethink your flow, and tell this new version of your story.  

Share your video with the story here in the community and explain your V1 and V2 stories and your learnings.
