Symbolism in Storytelling Exercise

Medium s h fb
Story & Heart

For your next film, consider the significant objects, settings, and people and how they might stand in as symbols for your story’s theme or purpose. Move away from their literal interpretation, and consider what that object means in as many ways as possible, both as part of the filmmaking genre you’re in and to your viewers. Then, consider how the other elements of filmmaking can be used to enhance that theme.
