    11. 11. Element 1: A Point of View All stories are told to make a point. Ex: In Ramayana, it is “the triumph of good over evil.&quot;
    12. 12. Element 2: Dramatic question The conflicts that arise between our desires being met and the desire of other characters or larger forces, creates the dramatic tension.
    13. 13. Element 3: Emotional Content The emotional paradigms often center on issues such as love & loneliness, death & loss, acceptance & rejection.  
    14. 14. Element 4: The Gift of your Voice Using your own voice in your stories personalizes your story … even though you may not be gifted with a great voice.  
    15. 15. Element 5: The Power of the Soundtrack The sound track can help you make sense of the visual information in the movie. It can help you understand the mood of the story.
    16. 16. Element 6: Economy A story can be effectively illustrated with a small number of images & video, and a relatively short text.
    17. 17. Element 7: Pacing Pacing is considered to be the true secret of successful storytelling. The rhythm of a story determines much of what sustains an audience’s interest.
