Webinar 2021 - The Change Challenge

What does innovation mean to you?

A defining characteristic of innovation is the creation of value. Innovation requires creativity, or the ability to bring into being new, original, or improved ideas, novel solutions, positive change, enhanced performance, or a competitive advantage that recasts the way we live our lives.

Whatever innovation means to you, it usually requires an open mindset. Change makers:

- Cultivate more willingness to take risks and challenge the status quo
- Collect ideas and proven solutions that have the potential to overcome obstacles, change
concepts, and ignite strategy
- Thrive with diverse ways of thinking
- Use imagination to envision a new reality
- Believe in the impossible

At ModernEpic, it is our responsibility to:
- Make sure that the new tools and solutions we’ve already put in place for people are becoming more stable, more reliable, and more accessible
- To continue to contemplate The Big Picture with more research and development and forward-thinking

These are all things we will be discussing this Weds July 14, 2021, at 1:00 ET for our webinar: The Change Challenge: Lessons from Innovators on Staying Ahead

#GoodVideoAdvice / Take shots that establish settings and enough wide shots to come back to regularly to give the viewer a sense of space. And if the location seems a little boring, use different wide shots to bring out different shapes and keep the scene looking interesting.

#GoodStoryAdvice / For every major story decision you have to make about plot and character development - force yourself to come up with at least three different creative options. Then toss two out. Your first idea is rarely your best idea. #advice #storyteller #idea

“#GoodStoryAdvice 037 Ever notice that in drama everyone gets the stuffing kicked out of them incessantly? Writer's have to churn up conflict, which often means creating worlds that feel like they are governed by a very unkind god. #advice #storytelling #drama”

#GoodVideoAdvice / Blown out whites in video are usually ugly. Avoid them by keeping windows out of your backgrounds, adding blinds or curtains, or blocking the light with an interesting object. Even a small change of camera position can fix distracting glare. #videography

#GoodStoryAdvice / Coincidence is a fickle friend. An extraordinary event may kick your story into gear, but it may NOT save your characters from sacrifice. Lucky saves make audiences feel cheated. Drama has lots of odd rules - this is just one of them. #Advice #storytelling

#GoodStoryAdvice / Low stakes kill a story. Most great stories turn on life and death stakes... with raw emotion driving the willingness to risk it. So if you're heroine isn't risking mortal peril... considering stepping up the dramatic conflict. #stakes #heroes #storytelling
