StudioStorie | Scuola di Storytelling, Sceneggiatura, Scrittura

@ VOL 9 ON JUN 05, 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, né mero esercizio di stile. È questione di cuore, di pancia e di testa. A differenza degli spunti da cui derivano, i grandi film di successo e i romanzi più avvincenti non sono mai esclusivo frutto dell’estemporaneità: sono la tecnica e l’abilità a fare la differenza. 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. Le lezioni, un piacevole mix di teoria e pratica, vi permetteranno di ideare storie affascinanti, di scriverle in modo ineccepibile e di trasformarle poi in sceneggiature (per cinema o per fumetto), romanzi o racconti. 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).

Filtered Through the Red Scull Cap

@ VOL 13 ON MAR 06, 2015

Marc Wagner:

Raised on a healthy diet of cartoons and comic books, Marc Wagner’s playful drawings are deceivingly innocent. These bright colors tend to tell some dark stories. Marc’s current work addresses the subconscious mind, sometimes his own, by working quickly and watching to see what happens. He also addresses our culture’s bombardment of images, and the popular characters that have become cultural icons. Most of Marc’s images are marker & pen, but he will occasionally use his printmaking background for different imagery. 

Marc attended South Dakota State University, where he received a degree in Graphic Design. During his time at SDSU, he also pursued his interests in studio arts. Particularly, drawing and printmaking. After graduating in 2013, he moved to back to Sioux Falls with his wife and their dogs. In addition to his job at Dakota Lettering, Marc stays busy freelancing as an illustrator.

Documenting Sunken Ship Sites

@ VOL 7 ON MAY 14, 2015

Kelly Keogh, PHD, an underwater archaeologist for NOAA in Honolulu, HI, describes how artifacts become historical record which in turn can create connection with our stories and civilization as a whole. One shipwreck discovery, the Two Brothers, is signifcant because it tells more of the story that inspired the novel, Moby Dick. She indeed shows us how all of these discoveries coming from a remote reef in the northwest Hawaiian islands do have significance to us all.
