Il Tempo Di una Storia

@ VOL 10 ON OCT 31, 2014

Se ti piace scrivere (e quindi anche leggere), StudioStorie fa per te; se ami il cinema, la letteratura, i fumetti e, a prescindere dall’età, vuoi scoprire i segreti della scrittura, StudioStorie fa per te; se pensi di avere talento o, al contrario, non sei molto sicuro di averne, StudioStorie fa per te.

StudioStorie è una scuola, divertente ma rigorosa, che ti aiuterà a coniugare istinto e regole: perché scrivere non è solo improvvisazione, e neppure mero esercizio di stile. Scrivere è questione di cuore, di pancia e di testa. E siccome la tecnica si può apprendere e l’abilità perfezionare, è nata StudioStorie, la prima scuola che svela l’esistenza di alcuni princìpi comuni alla base dei diversi generi narrativi. Come in un gioco di prestigio, ma senza trucchi (tranne quelli del mestiere), l’esperienza e l’entusiasmo di Sergio Badino ti consentiranno di mettere in luce le tue attitudini e di acquisire la competenza necessaria per scrivere (bene) storie (belle).

Art of the Pencils

@ VOL 16 ON SEP 01, 2016

Guilty Pleasures of a Video Game Writer and Greetings from Osijek

Presentations For nearly 8 years Steve Jaros has been lucky enough to be a working writer in the video games industry. Most recently he was nominated for best writing at the Game Developers Choice Awards for his work on the game Saints Row: The Third. Naturally, he lost to Portal 2. In this presentation (from PKN Champaign-Urbana Vol. 9), Steve shares some of his guilty pleasures. Akio Aoki (Miru) covers (in Japanese, from PKN Tokyo Vol. 93) a few of his projects and products, and also shares some of the exhibitions that have featured his work. Posters We kick off the week with a few new posters on our Tumblr blog. Covered are the following events: PKN Halifax Vol. 11, PKN Memphis Vol. 3, PKN London Vol. 8, and PKN Shenzhen Vol. 11, pictured above.  Photos and video We have one new gallery of photos [Facebook] to share with you today, from last week's PKN Amsterdam Vol. 22. Pictured above, a look at the warehouse-like venue. When we approve a new PKN series, we ask the new organizer (or team) to send us a greeting video (PK founders Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham do the same for the city's first event). Here's the wonderful video from the organizers of PKN Osijek. Links Today's links include a few tips on making a PechaKucha presentation, and some nice coverage of Tulsa's recent first PKN."PechaKucha for professional presentations - Do's and Don'ts" [Where Next]"PechaKucha Night at Living Arts of Tulsa celebrates creativity" [Tulsa World]Calendar It's going to be a slow week -- summer has officially hit -- but don't let that stop you from catching the events that are being held, like tonight's (July 17) PKN Jacksonville Vol. 20.

Writing on the Wall

"I go to art shows and I lick the paintings." Educator-turned-artist Jamie Smith confesses to have been unaware Abu Dhabi was a real location until she decided to move there.

Local Writeup on PNKLB

Long Beach Post recently wrote an article about the upcoming launch of PechaKucha Long Beach.  ArtExchange to Host Innovative Bimonthly Speaker Series During Third Thursdays Programming by ASIA MORRIS on MAY 13 2015 17:22 What comes to mind when you hear the phrase “PowerPoint presentation?” Perhaps a heavy sigh escapes your mouth, paired with an eye roll, as you imagine all the professors in your past who tried to use said technology to unsuccessfully liven up an already boring lecture. Maybe you get a little anxious at the thought of having to give your own presentation, when the words you want to say don’t necessarily coordinate with the images or words projected behind you. PechaKucha 20x20 is exactly the opposite.  Read more:

Doan Linh Hand Written Letters

“I use handwritten letter to listen and encourage people…” In "Hand Written Letters", from PechaKucha Night Ho Chi Minh City Vol.9, Doan Linh started "Letter to Angel", a non-profit organisation committed to bringing the lost art of handwritten letters back to people in Vietnam and around the world. In this presentation, she shares with us her vision behind L2A and what she hopes to achieve through it. It would be unfair to mention that she’s only 20 years old because her thoughts are much bigger the tiny number! Grab some paper and a pen, you might want to hand write your loved ones a letter right after listening to her talk.

Remembering the Memoir

Jennifer Venice Love is a teacher, writer and self-described perennial student and audiophile. In her own words, "Words have power, and I believe in the hypotenuse as much as the right angle." She has been digging up personal photos and listening to and reading others' stories in an attempt to unravel the inevitable knot of family and identity in the context of foster care, adoption, and abuse. In her presentation, she will explore the artistic process of exploring the wounded child within while acknowledging the importance of finding her own purpose, through teaching and traveling, as an adult.
