Teach students what a good video story is. Not all good stories are also video worthy
Teach students to know their story
Help students understand and express the FOCUS of the story. You can’t tell a story if you don’t clearly understand it yourself.
Instruct students to know people and locations
Send students out on the field to personally meet and talk to the characters in their story and evaluate shooting locations. Encourage them to take photos of location for further planning.
