Story Telling

Traditional Advertising is dead and has been for some time now. The 30-second spot is no longer effective and the DVR, along with multi-screen usage (tablets, smart phones, etc.) have contributed to the demise. Gone are the days where a brand could just slap their logo on content they had no role in shaping.

But out of the ashes, emerges a new paradigm, a model driven by the customer journey and the user experience. One which requires authenticity and relevance and takes place in real time, delivered through compelling content.

The Rise of Storytelling!

Brand Narrative

In today’s world, a brand’s values and the emotions they evoke are narrative material.

Brand narrative is the story of the ideas, experiences and values that represent the tangible, authentic depth and integrity of the brand’s relationship with its consumer. Storytelling and content strategy is now, more than ever, about meaning and experience.

A brand narrative is a powerful tool for making an emotional connection with the consumer who relates to the world around them through stories. The brand narrative or story needs to remain consistent across platforms. This is often referred to as Transmedia story telling.

Helping Brands Tell Their Story Through Improv

Improv is a great tool for generating stories. In this workshop, we’ll help your generate your big story and prepare you with the skills for sharing it with your audience.
If you’ve wondered how to craft more engaging stories that help you connect with authenticity and emotion, this is the workshop for you. You’ll leave with a story to tell in your marketing, for your “elevator pitch”, and you’ll walk away with new ideas for sharing your brand narrative through transmedia.

Through our experiential approach, participants should be able to use the improvisational skills learned to do the following:

  • Apply Storytelling Structure and Devices in Developing Your Brands Story
  • Create Methods and Routes to Socialize the Brand within the Organization
  • Next Steps and Actionable Items for Refining the Brand

“Play Storming’s intuitive and compassionate approach to training helped clients  move through their fears to a place where they felt safe to change and be changed.”

“I was pleased to enlist Play Storming’s help with our most recent workshop series for students involved in the DI creative problem solving program. We have asked other training professionals to help us in the past four years, but none of them has been more successful with our kids in a short period of time than Play Storming was.”

“I went there feeling resentful about having to attend an employee workshop. I was pleasantly surprised by the fun and usefulness of it almost immediately.”
Workshop Participant, The City of Round Rock

“Play Storming Productions provided a team building workshop for members of the public services staff at the Round Rock Public Library. This was a great opportunity for the team to get to know each other and open lines of communication. This group is usually very quiet and reserved, but Shawn and Terrill  were able to get them to open up and feel more comfortable around each other. Shawn’s and Terrill’s positive energy and confidence is contagious. By the end of the workshop, the staff expressed how much more positive and confident they felt and how this would help them be more effective at work.”
