A Renaissance Approach to Visual Storytelling in 2020 
Sunday, April 19
8:30 am – 12:00 pm | Ballroom G

 Imagine that Leonardo DaVinci had used 8K Video, DSLRs, and a wireless microphones instead of a pencil, paintbrush, and chisel. What would he say, and what would he do to make sure students could grasp the full potential of still images, video, and audio – exactly 500 years after his last year on earth? Today’s students need to know that the rules of great visual storytelling still apply, but they also crave the freedom to develop individual style and approach. This one-of-a-kind, three-session “VisuPosium”  will help to launch us forward into a world of high technology, creative software, and teaching innovation.

Session One: DaVinci said that he always felt it was his destiny to build a machine that would help may fly. Imagine what he could have done with a drone and the many other gadgets used to tell audio and visual stories on today’s media platforms.  

Session Two: Leonardo’s Take on Mixed Media: What would the Mona Lisa look like in video, photos and animation, and how would he use those tools to tell a story that no one could forget?

Session Three: The Complex Audio-Visual Story compared to Da Vinci’s Study of Body and Brain. Long form documentary stories, imagination and structure.
