When was the last time you told a story that you felt so connected to, that if you could, you would tell it entirely for free? And as a storyteller, when was the last time you made a film that truly moved people, and intensely reminded you of your passion for this craft?
STORYTELLING PARADE IS A FILMMAKING CONTEST WITH HEART.
It’s about coming together to tell the stories of those who are dedicating their lives to making a difference. To sparking a fire in others to do the same. To making the world a better place.
Participate in Storytelling Parade and do good, improve your craft, celebrate the strength of your filmmaking community…
…and win a portion of $100,000 in prizes in the process!
Over the next few weeks, the filmmakers & educators at Stillmotion be giving you heaps of support in your creative journey. Two full weeks of entirely free education will cover things like:
- How to find the heart of your story. The three qualities that every strong heart (lead character) needs. Knowing these will change how you approach your stories.
- How to craft a story that moves your audience emotionally. We’ll share one rule that always helps us create a strong connection with the viewer.
- How to conduct an interview that always leaves you with strong, passionate responses. This certainly goes against what they teach in film school, but these 5 ideas will shift everything about how you approach your interviews.
- A step-by-step guide to building your story in post. We’ll walk through how to structure the narrative, add in B-roll, and we’ll even touch on sound design and color.
All of this and more, in 5 tutorials. All entirely free if you sign-up to be a part of Storytelling Parade.
And at the end of the two weeks, we’ll have a live 2 hour online Q&A.
With a team of up to 3 filmmakers, tell the story of a person or non-profit that is making this world a better place.
- One shoot day
- One camera shoot
- One main character
- One clear take-away
TOGETHER WE CAN OWN THE POWER OF OUR CRAFT. WE CAN COME TOGETHER AND SHOW JUST HOW MUCH GOOD IS HAPPENING IN THE WORLD.
Let’s tell stories that inspire, and bring attention to the people and organizations that need it the most.
We’ll also have over $100,000 in prizes to help you tell even more amazing stories in the future!
And on October 27th, in Portland, OR, we’ll be hosting a premiere where we’ll screen the top films at a local theater and announce the winners!
If you would like to nominate a story that you think needs to be told during Storytelling Parade, share it with us here.
