Enthralled how storytelling is evolving... just published a short essay from the aral sea on @natgeo 's instagram stories feed. the philosophical process of creating such layered narratives is fascinating, beginning with storyboarding in spontaneous movement in field, doing so in vertical video and photo format, curating the final video thereafter due to no signal in such remote areas of uzbekistan, editing video to 10 seconds, sequencing both stills and video, editing metadata then publishing, all from an iphone. gracious appreciation to @yulia_grigoryants who is traveling with me on this leg of the @outofedenwalk for her insightful help with editing ~ be sure to follow yulia here on ig. also to aziz khalmuradoff for video support. this @natgeo instagram story will only exist for 24 hours...the ephemeral beauty of this lateral form of sharing stories.
