BANGKOK, Thailand, 12 December 2014 — This is the scene in front of my hotel when I first arrive at 1 am. What’s the lesson? There’s a story on every block, in every city of the world. All you have to do is keep your eyes and ears open. That’s what I’ll be telling the students at my workshop, which starts tomorrow, Saturday 13 December.

This is the second workshop I’m conducting in Bangkok. The first was earlier this year. The underlying message of these events is, “Raise Your Voice.” For the first time in the history of mankind, and because of the advances in technology, we can raise our voices to tell visual stories about issues that concern us. Anyone with a cell phone and access to the Internet now can communicate instantly, globally, and in the visual language that is understood by all.
The key, of course, is the ability to speak that visual storytelling language. And that’s why I’m here. To teach the visual storytelling language. This is the same language that I teach in my ONLINE Video Workshops, http://videojournalismworkshops.com, as well as my LIVE Video Workshops, http://videojournalismworkshops.com/live.
