The Concept of Story - A Media Arts Talk

Presentation Published 11/9/15 Last updated on 6/8/17

Talk Theme: The concept of story is as old as human experience, language, and the desire to make sense of our existence. Throughout this lecture we will explore the origins of story, its archetypal structure in myth, and we’ll focus on how these journey patterns are fundamental in various art mediums; including Film, TV, Video Games & Digital Design.

I love the comparison between movies and games. The Last of Us is a story that you play. I have played it from being to end several times, just to see it again. This defiantly shows how stories can have an impact.
