How is non-fiction storytelling evolving in the age of Netflix?
I talk with Ed Hersh of consultancy StoryCentric about his work with producers and channels.
His focus is on how Netflix and a host of new Direct-to-Consumer subscription platforms are challenging the storytelling conventions that once dominated in the Linear/Cable/Satellite era.
You’ll hear about:
- Program structure
- The new arc of stories
- And how programs across all platforms are becoming more cinematic and immersive.
Listen to my conversation with Ed for much more detail on how storytelling is evolving, and how both channels and producers need to respond.
