18 – Conversation with Professional Storyteller, Joel ben Izzy

January 20, 2017

 The term storyteller seems to be one of the more misunderstood or misused vocational words in the past decade. Certainly this seems to be the case in a world of ad agencies, video production companies, and self-styled online entrepreneurs.  Joel ben Izzy is the answer to this rampant misuse.  He is quite literally a professional storyteller.

And I was fortunate enough to have met him on a film job last year, where I was incredibly impressed at the way in which he not only presented stories from a stage, but how he convinced his audience that they too – each and every one of them – had their own stories to tell and why it was important for them to be telling them.  So, I only found it appropriate to ask Joel to be on the show to share his wisdom, inspiration, and yes, a few stories with the future storytellers of the documentary world (aka #doclifers).

I hope y’all enjoyed and benefitted from this conversation even half as much as I did.
