Talk: Thursday 15:00 Logan Hall
Telling the Right Story
Nat will talk about the importance of storytelling, the art of the information film and the joy of projects with unframed challenges, using the wide range of work that Airside has created recently to illustrate this. From Virgin Atlantic’s latest in-flight entertainment system, to a project for Café Direct empowering farmers in East Africa and Latin America via the internet and SMS, Nat will show that information plus narrative equals powerful communication.
