Storybox is a publishing house for oral storytellers in Denmark, thus the language is danish.
That's just half the story. Of course we do not turn our back on the international society of storytelling. On the contrary.
We love to see what others are doing in this field, and we love to share our experiences with you.
The storybox idea and paradigm
For thousands of generations storytelling has been the part of life that served finding a sense of meaning, knowing and community. During a couple of centuries the industrial mass media seemed to have outdone the importance of storytelling, but the rise of the internet and social media are profoundly changing this.
Now is the time for storytellers everywhere to show their act and produce recorded storytelling as well as live storytelling for all sorts of internet publishing, social media sharing and video communication.
Since 2012 we have experimented with video and audio recordings to find the best formats for internet publishing and revenue.
We started out with a $5000 Pro camera rigged with external microphones and lights. We ended up with a pretty old MacBook Air rigged with an external webcam and a wired body-microphone.
We built a 25 feet (square feet) home studio with a soft backdrop, a turkish rug and one or two fill-lights.
We are frankly open to share our experiences with international colleagues in any form – meetings, online conferences et al.
We also look forward to learn about your experiments!
