Transcript of The impact of storytelling techniques on documentary editing
The relation between two stages
USE OF NARRATION - "VOICE OF GOD"

person never appears on the screen
speaks directly to the audience
story based on the footage, not on the scripted text
mix of interview clips
"holes" filled in post-production

Form defines STORYTELLING TECHNIQUE
Storytelling technique defines EDITING style
