Storytelling to Inspire (Keira Bullock & Ryan McCutcheon)

Do you know how to spot a good story? Or how to get someone who isn’t sure they even have a story to share something powerful? And once you find the story, how do you capture someone’s specific story and tell it in a way that it can relate to a broad audience? If you want to know some tips and tricks on how to film and produce a transformative story join us as we share what we learned from 11 years of trial and error and learning the art ourselves.
