At the end of the day. Storytelling started when a bunch of cavemen huddled around the fire communicating stories.
The difference now is that we have the technology to perform the same thing in different mediums be it acrylic on canvas, printing on paper, projection on the screen, or sound wave that comes out of a set of speakers.
Just remember that at the core, we are still telling a story. Everything else should enhance the experience of relaying/receiving the story.
So the next question would be, what makes good story telling. Which style suits better for which medium?
Something to ponder.
