    Camera Ready!

    - Taking Your Storytelling Online with Confidence. 

    A FEAST Webinar by Priti ModyIyer.

    Camera Ready! shows participants how to bring Virtual storytelling alive. It has practical, ready to apply, tips and tricks for everybody who wants to get better at using technology for storytelling. If you have never been in front of a camera or if even if you have told stories multiple times on virtual platforms like Zoom, this webinar will take you to your next level.

    In the webinar we will play with equipment, background, using props, lighting, movement and using your space effectively.

    This webinar focuses on the one thing storytellers miss the most while telling online : being able to exchange energy with our audiences.

    It will shine a light on how to make your story telling come alive so that both you and your listeners get the benefit of having you right there (almost) in front of them. This is done by showing you how to harness your own strengths and experiences as a storyteller and use them to your advantage.

    This is a unique opportunity to explore the nuances of Virtual/Online Storytelling, why it is so important and to quickly acquire the skills to be able to do what has become necessary, with confidence.

     


    About Priti Modyiyer

    Priti Modyiyer is an engaging storyteller and leadership trainer who uses stories as a powerful medium to inspire change. 

    “Stories and experiences are the only thing that stay,” is something she always tells her colleagues and training participants. This led her to embrace performance storytelling, inspired by the wonderful Storytelling community in Singapore. She has recently been a teller online for communities like FEAST, Storyline, SilverGood, and Worldwide Virtual Storytelling Guild.

    Priti started her career as a financial correspondent for Asia Business News India or ABNI (which became CNBC-TV18 while she was with them). She presented the Call Money market news that aired weekly. She wrote and presented other sections of labour union news in Mumbai as well. Working both in front of, and behind the camera, with the camera and production crew was an experience that stayed with her in the following years. She continued to use it in her experiential learning and training workshops both on camera and off it to create quality trainings for clients as she travelled all over India.

    Priti has around 17 years of human resource related experience, of which more than 10 are in executive coaching, training, organisation development and program facilitation and 4 were in the US working with Fortune 50 companies.

    Priti conducts executive coaching, individual sessions, groups and workshops all essentially aimed at personal and professional growth. She has developed and led outbound leadership programs, team building workshops and induction programs for corporates and colleges.

    It has been heartening to see a lot of virtual storytelling action over the last two months, particularly from storytellers in India. As the largest contingent in the FEAST community, that should come as no surprise!

    A few weeks ago, Deeptha Vivekanand and Rituparna Ghosh reached out to the Directors of FEAST - Sheila Wee, Jeeva Raghunath and Roger Jenkins, and Consulting Director Krupa Vinayagamoorthy - with the suggestion to start an exclusive FEAST India Chapter to address the needs and challenges of the growing storyteller community in the country. Deeptha and Rituparna feel strongly - and we wholeheartedly agree - that storytellers in India would benefit immensely from organising themselves into a unified community in order to effectively deal with the demands of industries and spaces that require the services of storytellers. 

    Such a Chapter would create a safe space  to share best practices, discuss challenges, collaborate on projects, form special interest groups, and stay connected. We are already pleased to see many new collaborations happening in recent times, perhaps the only silver lining of the COVID-19. With the tribe of storytellers in India expanding, the Directors of FEAST believe this is the right time to launch such an initiative and that it could well become a barometer for similar efforts across the world.

    We hope you will join us for this meeting and become a  founding member of this Chapter. Feast members are welcome to personally invite any Indian tellers to observe.

    Please register if you would like to be a part of this conversation.

    We look forward to having you on board.
