If you want to tell stories, you must write them first...

I looked at the calendar today and realized that over a year has passed since my last post. Writing this blog and my other more personal one was such a big part of my life for many years, then life itself took over and time passed by with me participating in the stories more that simply capturing them on paper (virtual and real). The stories I have captured are those I do for work or in support of my volunteer activities as videographer for the WA Hough High School Choral Booster Club, the occasional contribution I make to Cathedral School, where my three children attended when they were younger, and performances by these same three children who are now young adults:

Video provides such a rich means of telling stories combining music, words and visuals to convey a broad range of content and emotion.

All manner of people, from corporate executives to five-year-olds on a playground have stories to tell. Some need to translate complex data into meaningful change, while others just want to share the wonders of sliding for the first time. The magic is in the storyteller and video provides the platform on which they perform.

Once upon a time I wrote often in this space. Once again I look forward to sharing my excitement of the story and the many ways they can be shared. So, if you have a story to share, and need someone to help you reach your audience, send us an email and ask how Wish and a Prayer Studios can help you bring your story to life.
