Vision Video, 29 Minutes, $15.99
In a delightful way, storyteller Rick Sowash shows us by example valuable pointers on telling stories well. But have your pen and notebook ready and be prepared to write fast-you’d never think so much help could be contained in this rather short presentation. Sowash shows the viewer how to hook and hold the audience and how to use one’s eyes, face, hands, and props to make the “listeners’ imaginations soar.” You’ll have your funny bone tickled as well. Special features include a workshop study guide, “There’s More to Storytelling Than Meets the Ear” in PDF (suitable for 1–4 sessions); using the piano in storytelling; stories by Rick Sowash; and trailers and music.
