The Art of Storytelling
“For sale: Baby shoes. Never worn.” – E. Hemingway
This is a six-word novel written by Earnest Hemingway. It’s the shortest novel of all time, yet it’s still a story that stirs thought and emotion just like any good story does.
There is an art and an importance to storytelling that humanity thirsts for. Stories have evoked passion and taught life lessons from the beginning of time. Perhaps even the greatest storyteller of all time was Jesus Christ, Who wrote the greatest story of all time with His life. The truth is, we all have significant stories to tell, so we feel like it’s time we start telling some of those stories being lived-out all around the city of Seattle and begin quenching that “good-story-thirst” we all have.
Meet Beau Chevassus, a lover of Jesus, people, and telling stories.
Beau is from Enumclaw, WA, and he is a videographer and a founder at Knok Studios, an organization that connects film makers to organizations that need their stories told. Beau and his team will be partnering with Light Up the City over the next few months to help tell some of the amazing stories of the things that the Lord is doing around Seattle among God’s people and The Church.
What’s so unique about how Beau and his team at Knok tell stories? They use video, and they use it well. With the help of Knok, we can’t wait to share some of the sights and sounds with you as we get into telling these epic tales, so be on the lookout for some of our future posts featuring exclusive video content that is guaranteed to tell some sweet stories.
If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a moving picture must be worth at least million.
Thank you for reading, and have a great day!
