Once upon a time yet to come… The ability to craft and tell stories diffused through world populations, faster than ever. Both the knowledge of how to construct and tell stories and the tools for building your experience at storytelling became cheaper, easier, faster and more convenient. So more people told more stories to more people than ever in history. That trend continued.
So Phil made nine predictions...
1. Everyone tells stories well. Storytelling knowledge and skills previously reserved for expensive and exclusive film schools and writer workshops will become standard K-12 curricula.
2. Storytelling quality soars. Literacy will raise expectations.
3. From Art to Engineering. Professional education will advance the art.
4. Stories for every occasion. Other information will become wrapped in storytelling.
5. Machines spin tales. More storytelling will be automated.
6. Wherever you go, there you author stories. More storytelling will start with mobile products.
7. We Author Together. More authoring will be massively collaborative.
8. Storytelling gets things done. Spielers (oral storytellers) and tummlers (people who urge an audience to participate) will become professions outside of the arts.
9. Theater and play at its roots. New storytelling media will evolve to build on old media.
Happily Ever After,
