Tell a Story in 10 Frames - "Josh & Alex"


Can you tell a story in just 10 frames? My bet is that you can. For me, most slideshows go on too long. So I gave myself the assignment to create a series of movies that told a story in only 10 frames. I've published the first entry, Josh & Alex Wedding in 10 Frames.

I created this movie in iPhoto '09, then exported it as a QuickTime file. I then posted it to The Digital Story Flickr page, where I'll be adding more to this series soon.

Take a look and let me know what you think.

Great idea: limits have a miraculous effect on creativity (mine at least). Now, could you tell a similar story in, say 5 photo's? ;)

I like this idea. I agree that slideshows tend to be far far too long. Not yet sure if 10 is the right number - but I will be trying this to see where I end up.

Well of course the ultimate goal is to tell a good story in one photo. The only problem is, it's a bit of a dull slideshow :)

There's actually a Flickr group called "Tell a story in 5 frames" -- I tried with something simple as a cat yawning. Not easy! But there are loads of great ideas from other contributors:

Thanks for the link to the Flickr group, webojunk. Way cool!
