THOUGHTS ON STORYTELLING FROM DIRECTOR RON HOWARD

Photographers are notorious for being all about gear. I know I write a weekly post on the gear and equipment that I use, but out in the internets it can get out of hand. This weeks storytelling insight comes from an interview with Ron Howard in which he spoke briefly about technology and its role in telling stories.

"I love the fact that I can get so much closer to what's in my mind on the screen than I ever could before. And there was always this gap, and that gap is narrowing. [Robert Zemeckis] was quoted as saying 'We can no longer dazzle people, it's back to story. And it has to be character and it has to be story.' I love that."

We can no longer dazzle people, it has to be character and story.
