Fujifilm will showcase five films in its new story-focused content series, Create Forever. The series will tell five inspirational film making stories.
Fujifilm started releasing the films September 17, 2019. They’ve been releasing them weekly and will continue to do so until all five have been released.
Choosing the stories for Create Forever
At the beginning of the project, Fujifilm partnered up with Muse Storytelling. Muse Storytelling is an Emmy award-winning studio in Portland, Oregon. The two teamed up to “use narrative to positively impact society,” according to Fujifilm. Through the Muse Storytelling Process, the team spoke with thousands of members of the Fujifilm community. The team also interviewed about one hundred storytellers. They ended up picking three image makers, one storyteller, and two Fujifilm innovators “whose stories embodied the greater Fujifilm narrative,” according to Fujifilm.
The Fujifilm Create Forever series tells the stories of three Fujifilm image makers – Alison Conklin, Josué Rivas and Ian MacDonald. As for the storytellers, the National Public Radio’s Ira Glass was chosen. Lastly, Fujifilm innovators Sam Minami and Tetsuro Ashida were chosen as well.
You can be a part of it too
Fujifilm’s Create Forever Series will also bring a series of free storytelling workshops. These workshops will teach the Muse curriculum that helped to tell the stories in the Create Forever campaign. There will be workshops in New York, NY, Nashville, TN, San Francisco, CA and Portland, OR.
“The workshop series will encourage meaningful online conversation, spark in-person exchanges, create impactful social content, and give participants the tools to tell powerful stories,” says Fujifilm.
