You may have noticed that I have started to use the terms “work” and “gift” interchangeably. I’m a bit of a procrastinator, so it’s not always a compliment. I’m also not a fan of repetition, so I tend to create multiple versions of the same type of work.
I’ve noticed a trend. It’s called “gifting,” and while it’s great in that it provides people with the same type of work in a similar way, it also encourages people to repeat the same patterns over and over again.
GIFs are a great way to illustrate a very common idea in our culture which is that we tend to find ourselves drawn to the same type of work over and over again. This is a very subjective phenomenon, but for the sake of this article I will attempt to explain my reasoning for gifting a lot.
GIFs are the most popular type of image on the internet, and they do a great job at making it easy for us to find one similar to our own. They can also provide a very unique and personal experience, especially for those of us who tend to have a lot of common interests.
I’d like to show some of my work here. This is my first post on gifting the art of storytelling and storytelling art, but I want to offer some of the art and stories of the movie that I’ve previously worked on.
For one thing, the gifs I’ve made are about the movie that my brother and I watch, and they are the kind of things you don’t usually see on my website. That’s because I want to illustrate how the art of storytelling is one of the most powerful forms of expression. You can imagine a storyteller saying, “I need a bunch of people to listen to me” and then they write down the questions that are going to come to mind.
You’ll find a lot of work on my film in the next few weeks. But first I want you to take a look at some of my other short films that I have made. Here are a few.
There are many different ways to tell a story, both in the sense of storytelling (with movies, books, and novels) and in the sense of art (with comics, video games, and animations). The beauty of a story is that you get to pick and choose what you want to represent. You can’t just tell a story with a story, because you would end up with a story.
I like the idea of working from a story, whether or not it’s the one I personally want to tell. I mean, I love the idea of telling a story with a story, but I don’t think I can do that within the scope of my own story. But I like the idea of having the freedom to tell a story in other ways.
I think that in many ways it works more in the hands of the artist than the storyteller. Because the idea of telling a story is so powerful, artists understand it very intuitively. The artist is in charge of the storytelling, so they have more of a control over what they want to represent than a storyteller. The artist can focus on what you want to convey, and the storyteller can focus on what is important to them to convey.
