Perennial Wisdom - Video Witnessing Narratives Landscape

Project Proposal

Project Goal - To Create A Video Witnessing Narratives Landscape Across Spiritual Traditions, Inspired By Writings in Perennial Widsom:

Video Narratives Landscape Mockup: Interactive exploration, with intelligent connections between videos

(mobile screen compatible or App) 

Project Proposal Outline:

 

Video Narratives Landscapes Exploring Spiritual, Transpersonal and Evolutionary Themes

  • An approach of combining micro-narratives with meta-maps / landscapes

  • Filmed using the witnessing portait method

  • Filmed entirely remotely - no travel or carbon footprint

  • The Perennial Wisdom landscape in the above image providing:

    • A framework for selecting who to film​

    • A guide for the editing process

      • How to "signify" the narratives (see the Sensemaking principles of narrative signification)

      • Identifying how do the narratives connect? - It is not just about the content, but how the narratives connect

    • The possibility for a video visualisation - or "narratives landscape"
