  4. 4. “Storytelling is about two things; it's about character and plot.” - George Lucas Insert yourself into the Story....Tell of your own journey Pace Your Timing: Sequence the steps of the Story, clearly showing beginning/middle/end

  6. 6. “The art challenges the technology and the technology inspires the art.” - John Lasseter Paint a picture using visual imagery to dramatize the Story Tap into the listener’s memory banks varying intonation...Use sound effects/musical soundtracks
  7. 7. “I could fall in love with a sumo wrestler if he told stories and made me laugh.” - Maya Angelou Use body language to evoke physical humor (Rachel Dratch as SNL’s Debbie Downer, Mr. Bean, Steven Wright) Use play on words to evoke linguistic humor (Paula Poundstone, Steve Harvey, Robin Williams)
