    Data Driven Storytelling - Gunther Sonnenfeld - StoryLabs Podcast Ep16

    DATA DRIVEN STORYTELLING - "We don't know all that much about our audiences" - Gunther explores the merging of behavioural research and monitoring with new form film, TV branding and it's ultimate effect on storytelling. 'The internet is a giant focus group and we can build applications and services that identify behaviours which can then fuel future projects' and he goes on to say that this is nothing new for product distribution which has developed since the 1950s when understanding what consumers did with new products influenced the next wave - but now this can be done in real time and that knowledge can be used not only by the marketing and distribution channels but by the creatives themselves. But most tools used today whether social media filtering or other crude measurement tools is making it almost impossible for users to find content but also producers to reach them effectively. Using case studies and references to his work with big brands and studios Gunther talks about a future of audience usage AI, semantic automation, advanced monitoring techniques, adaptive development and much more to make the case that storytelling needs to be much more aligned with what users actually need and want - a data/story evolution.
