When it comes to telling stories, I’m all about putting down words on the page (or more often than not, a Word document).
But stories can be told in all sorts of ways: through print, radio, photography, film, and art. So when my good friend Stephanie, who recently launched a new creative business, Stephanie Vermillion Studio, asked to interview me on camera, I said yes.
I’m much more used to asking questions than answering them – I work as a journalist, after all – but I decided to get over my nerves and just go for it. I’m so glad I did! Stephanie worked her magic to tell the story behind Stories My Suitcase Could Tell through film, turning our afternoon of catching up one snowing afternoon by the Hudson River into a mini movie about life as a travel blogger.
As I’ve said before, blogging is not just for the writer, but for the reader – and “for the story.”
Stephanie’s work shows that stories come in all shapes, sizes, and forms, and that video tells a story in a way other mediums can’t. To see Stephanie’s hard work (and me!) in action, go ahead, press play, and take a wee look “behind the scenes” of Stories My Suitcase Could Tell!
