Good Storyteller Eager To Entertain

Make ‘someone else’ Smile

Improve Your Social Storytelling Technique
 

How would you describe the ideal party? For me, the ideal party is populated with people eager to entertain. In my opinion, meeting someone at a party who is a good storyteller is like finding lost treasure. Wouldn’t it be great if everyone you met at a party told you an entertaining story?

How You Can Become a Great Storyteller

Ideally, you want to take responsibility for making someone else’s evening enjoyable by telling them a funny, interesting story. Me? I could never be a great storyteller, you may be thinking. Yes, you can. Everyone has at least one great story that they could tell. Most people have lots but lack the confidence to tell those stories. Storytelling is a gift that we give to others. You don’t have to be born with a special talent. You only need to have the desire to make someone else smile. The truth is that storytelling is a skill that may be learned and improved by practicing.

Identifying a Great Story

Put simply, a great story consists of a three fundamental elements: a beginning with a clearly defined goal, a middle outlining the obstacles that stand in the way of success, and an ending that describes that which was accomplished, achieved or overcome in order to reach the desired goal. Regardless of the topic, these three elements constitute the essence of a story.

Once you’ve chosen a story that includes these elements, you can go about filling in the essential details that make your story memorable, interesting and/or funny.

Creating the Story

Choosing which and how many details to include is the tricky part. Storytelling falls short when the speaker fails to weed out essential details from tedious minutiae. Only include in your story the details that are necessary to move the story forward. Does it matter to your story what time of day you ran into your long lost high school sweetheart? Probably not. Leave that detail out. Focus on the important parts of your story and leave the boring bits out. Remember, you want to tell a story that captures people’s imagination. Leave out some of the details so that your listener’s imagination has something to do.

Just the Facts

At the beginning of this post I talked about being entertained. As a storyteller, you’re an entertainer not the fact checker at Encyclopedia Britannica so don’t let a few facts get in the way of a good story. Am I advocating telling bare-faced lies? Not at all! However, don’t be afraid to embellish. “That fish must’ve weighed 50 pounds!” Really? Fifty pounds? Likely not and your listener knows that because of the sparkle in your eye. It’s part of the fun.

The Emotional Core

A successful story is emotionally moving. You want your listener to feel an emotional connection to your story. You probably don’t want to move your listener to tears but you probably do want to make them laugh. That will only happen if they’ve become convinced that the goal you identified at the beginning is worthy and if they can identify with your desire to obtain it.

Storytelling Technique

Expert oral storytellers make use of dramatic timing. Not the “dramatic” type? You don’t need to be. But you do need to understand dramatic timing. For example, even the most taciturn storytellers will benefit from including a pregnant pause in their stories. There’s a rhythm to the way in which good storytellers let their stories unfold.

Practice, Practice, Practice

Now that you’ve chosen which story to tell, decided on the essential details, relaxed a little about facts, found your story’s emotional core and given some thought to dramatic timing, take the time to practice telling it. Tell your story to your spouse and/or your best friend. Practice, practice, practice. Then tell it with confidence.

Remember, your listeners are hoping to be entertained. They want you to succeed. So, relax and have fun.

Madagascar
Melman the giraffe.  Gloria the hippopotamus. Alex the lion. Marty the zebra.
As a cub, Alex the Lion was called Alakay and was the son of Zuba, the alpha lion. Though Zuba tries to teach Alakay to be a hunter, the cub is more interested in dancing, and is captured by poachers when Makunga, Zuba’s rival, challenges Zuba to a fight for the position of alpha lion. Alakay is forced into a crate, and taken away despite Zuba’s attempts to rescue him. The crate falls into the ocean where it drifts to New York. There, Alakay is renamed Alex and sent to the Central Park Zoo where he grew up, meeting Marty the Zebra, Melman the Giraffe, and Gloria the Hippopotamus. 

Madagascar Spoiled by their upbringing with no idea what wild life is really like, four animals from New York Central Zoo escape, unwittingly assisted by four absconding penguins, and find themselves in Madagascar. Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa The animals try to fly back to New York City, but crash-land on an African wildlife refuge, where Alex is reunited with his parents. Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted Alex, Marty, Gloria and Melman are still fighting to get home to their beloved Big Apple. Their journey takes them through Europe where they find the perfect cover: a traveling circus, which they reinvent – Madagascar style.

This kind of entertainment is what they call “movie – irresistible computer animation feature;
*Just a picture of these bright toys on the cover of Toy Story looks intriguing as it reawakens the kid in us.
*Filmmaker John Lasseter’s shorts illustrate not only a technical brilliance also a great sense of humour–one in which the pun is always intended.
*Lasseter thinks of himself as a storyteller first and an animator second, much like another film innovator, Walt Disney.

Lasseter’s story is universal 
*what do toys do when they’re not played with? Cowboy Woody (voiced by Tom Hanks),
*Andy’s favourite bedroom toy, tries to calm the other toys (some original, some classic)
*party, when newer toys may replace them. Sure enough, Space Ranger Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen) is the new toy that takes over the throne.
*Buzz has a crucial flaw, though–he believes he’s the real Buzz Lightyear, not a toy.
*Bright and cheerful, Toy Story is much more

*the inevitable bonanza of Woody and Buzz toys.
Lasseter further scores with perfect voice casting, including
*Don Rickles as Mr. Potato Head and Wallace Shawn as a meek dinosaur.
*The director-animator won a special Oscar “For the development and inspired application of techniques that have made possible the first feature-length computer-animated film”.
*In other words, this movie is great. –Doug Thomas Toy Story 2 John Lasseter and his gang of high-tech creators at Pixar
