Seema Anand Storytelling

Today I am glad to present you a very interesting and clever Storyteller.
I am talking about Seema Anand. She is a Mythologist, practicing storyteller and Doctor of narrative practices based in London. She also lectures on the Kamasutra and is an acknowledged authority on Eastern Erotology, delivering courses on the Mahabharata, the Bhagavad Gita, Tantric philosophy and the Mahavidyas.
I watched some of her videos on her Youtube Channel, I suggest you to visit it.
You can see a perfect example of how an artist can tell a story with a video, giving a true piece of art.
I ever thought that, despite the web is made of astonishing special effects and incredible sounds, if you want to be a storyteller, you should not forget what are the real important things.
First of all, the story is all.
If you have a good one – and Seema shows to have a lot of them, do not be worry and valorize it the most you can.
Second, you are important as much as you give all shine to the former.
The story again.
So, if you do not want to miss The Warrior Goddess’ story, better you wait for the next episode.

Digital Storytelling and Resistance by Anna Azizzy

Well, this is really something.
I just made a tour on the Anna Azizzy’s Youtube Channel and I thought wow.
If you like experimental and original creations, that is the right place.
In particular, I suggest you to watch last video from her, Digital Storytelling and Resistance.
You know, viral and popular clips often decide trends and imitations, but I always thought that to find interesting stuff you have to be patient and search a lot.
This was one of the reason of this website’s presence.
In this video of her, even if she is not using special effects Dreamworks’ or Marvel’s style, you can see all the effort of a potential, very original artist.
So, I hope other storytelling and resistances will arrive.

Drugventures video journalism over drug use activism and policy

Well, this is very interesting and beautiful.
I worked for many years using theatre and storytelling in communities for drug addicted patients and I think one of the most important thing is to tell the outside world what happens inside those strange and often unkown places.
As a prison is too, like the girl says in this great video, one I found on this Channel/Project.
In my humble opinion, spreading around pieces of life as those, part of our shared society, most of the time hidden in words and images, forbidden stories just to scare the audience of the already scaring TV News, is a noble intention for a storyteller.
Here are other information from the Youtube Channel: This is an on-going video documentary project over drugs, policies surrounding them and the science behind them. My aim to is to upload videos that would work independently, but also, as a whole, create a first person perspective to the world of drugs and drug policies. The project started last April 2016 when I was visiting New York City for the first time in my life to cover events and interviewing experts surrounding the United Nations General Assembly on the World Drug Issue (UNGASS). I have aimed to always ask permission from people who feature on the footage, but that has not always been possible.
Background of the author: I have two master degrees in social sciences (Sociology&Medical Anthropology) and currently working as a PhD Candidate in Sociology in Finland. Methodologically I´m interested in visual/digital ethnography.
