HOW TO: Tell any story with five key frames, a 30-minute editorial storytelling explainer series.
Hi, I'm Matt Hunt, an independent broadcast journalist and commercial + documentary editorial photographer based in Bangkok, Thailand. I have been widely published as an editorial photographer, selling my pictures to agencies as a stringer and an independent contributor of editorial stock to several of the largest distribution services in the world.
In this series, I demonstrate a personal methodology, or checklist, that I apply to various environments to tell a complete story. Using this checklist, the DAMPS method, I can tell a story of just about anything, regardless of its level of action, intensity, human involvement, et cetera.
This course will teach you to use my personal method and build a real-life example of it with an editorial assignment I completed in 2023. These methods are personal, and the format of my course is informal, based largely on a conversation format more than a university course.
As an extra step, the final episode discusses what steps to take after learning and implementing the DAMPS method, which should set you on the right course toward growing your work independently by presenting well-rounded stories quickly and efficiently.
Who this course is for
This course is for storytellers looking for an easy recipe to tell any story in five key frames.
Any level of experience with any camera is fine, even none.
