||The following project illustrates how one storytelling medium can be altered to tell
a story using a different medium. The project consists of three parts. The first part
is a fictional short story. The second part is a screenplay that was further developed
from the short story. The final part is a reflection on storytelling as well as my
creative process while crafting these two fictional pieces. While exercising both
narrative and screen writing, this project demonstrates what techniques a short story
and a screenplay share and how those techniques may be used to transform the short
story into the screenplay. After developing the short story, I examined how the story
and writing style changed as I moved to the next medium.
Within my own world of multimedia and storytelling, I have learned that some tools
are often expected while others need to be re-imagined. Therefore, during my creative
process, each of these tools, methods and mediums have taught me that there is no
one way to tell a story and many components of crafting the story can be shared as
well as transformed. While working on diverse range of projects, I have learned how
language is used differently, discovered things about characters and continue to notice
how the creative process adjusts along the way.
