THE FUTURE OF STORYTELLING IS IN YOUR HANDS – On your smartphone and on your laptop – and now global media platforms from Netflix to Amazon will pay for the well-developed short-form documentary. What story do you want to tell?

Join Bobette Buster, Professor of the Practice at Northeastern’s College of Arts, Media and Design, for an evening lecture on short-form storytelling.

This free event is open to all Northeastern students and will offer an overview of the best practices in short-form documentary, including premise, lead character point-of-view, narrative, story structure and the informed use of cinema language.
