This is the first time I have covered what is essentially a marketing campaign for a camera maker but  have done so because Fujifilm USA’s ‘Create Forever’ tutorial videos and free storytelling workshops offer more than mere marketing bumf about Fujifilm’s in-body image stabilization-equipped GFX 100 medium format hybrid stills and video camera.

“Fujifilm’s driving force behind the Create Forever campaign is to encourage creators to go forth in the pursuit of making something that matters to them. In order to equip creators with all of the possible tools to tell authentic stories, Fujifilm partnered with Muse Storytelling to develop a series of tutorials that teaches viewers about the marquee elements of the Muse Storytelling Process that helped to tell the stories featured in the series.”

  • Muse StorytellingReview of the 100 Megapixel FUJIFILM GFX 100 for filmmakers – video – “We’re so pumped because the FUJIFILM GFX 100 has a MASSIVE medium format sensor (that’s 1.7x the Canon 5D) along with a super impressive in-body-image-stabilization. This means some amazing handheld options in such a small package. So much so that we shot this entire review handheld. Like macro shots, moving shots, the talking head interview portion–all of it handheld.”
  • This American Life – “Mostly we do journalism, but an entertaining kind of journalism that’s built around plot. In other words, stories! Our favorite sorts of stories have compelling people at the center of them, funny moments, big feelings, surprising plot twists, and interesting ideas. Like little movies for radio.”
