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 as well as 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 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 added bonus, the course includes a downloadable PDF of the methodology + checklist for every student to use to help grow their own storytelling after finishing the course.
