The first stories were depicted in the oldest cave drawings. Then the written word along with the paintings frescoes and paintings of walls in Egyptian tombs Greek homes and ancient graffiti.
The art of storytelling for eons was verbal myths, legends, history and ancient knowledge passed down orally. With the written word and the printing press the writings of wordsmiths, poets, scholars and play writers were able to reach an ever widening audience. The ability to paint pictures with words created a hungry audience of readers of dime store novels, reference books, how to pamphlets and the works of two of the greatest painters of pictures with words, Arthur Conan Doyle and to my mind the greatest wordsmith, Agatha Christie!!!
A while back I was watching an old black and white British Agatha Christie movie that I know I had never seen before. There was a scene of a thatched roof cottage that was the scene of a crime and the view was from the outside. The moment I saw this scene I recognized it knowing I had not seen this movie. What I recognized was the exact description I had read in the book written by Agatha Christie. Her storytelling skills were so precise that how she described this scene in the novel painted a picture in mind that I recognized some 15 years later when I saw this movie.
The art of storytelling will live forever. The progress in this art has lasted hundreds of thousands of years and with the addition of technology, from the radio, cartoons, TV, color TV, 3D TV, movies, 3D movies immersive video games and the Holodeck from Star trek is just around the corner.
Wordsmiths, novelists, screenplay and play writers, copywriters, comic book writers and all wordsmiths have an opportunity to embrace all that is available to bring their written words to life.
If you’ve ever read Mad Magazine, it might have been a comic book but it was not just for kids. There were some very heavy messages and ideas that were incorporated in that magazine that was over the heads of just comic book readers.
If the idea of bringing your written words, ideas and thoughts to a visual experience appeals to you, you can see what is possible, at www.digicontentmakers.com.
