  1. Kevin Spacey has been actively supporting the craft of storytelling for years. Back in 2000, he started an online community for writers called Triggerstreet Productions where aspiring screenwriters, like myself, could be mentored and discovered. We uploaded our screenplays, reviewed and rated each others work, and had discussions online. The most highly rated screenplays rose to the top and was reviewed by Spacey’s team for a chance to get optioned. This was way, way ahead of its time. I only had a dial-up connection to access the community at the time 🙂

    1. Gordana, thanks for the support but also for providing that additional information. I am always looking for inspiration in storytelling and content marketing. Pixar, Oprah, Dave Grohl and Kevin Spacey are all helping us to disrupt the field of marketing and turn advertising waste into storytelling the audience wants.

  2. Advertising waste is a good way to describe it. I, myself, like using the term “audio and visual pollution”. Content marketing is quickly becoming a multi-disciplinary practice and can certainly draw inspiration from many fields. You just need to know where to look!

  3. Thanks for the post. It is clear that we can apply and learn good content marketing strategies from all industries. Advertising waste is a great way to put it. As you said, consumers love stories and hate interruption marketing. Stories invite their interest, and Kevin Spacey seems to know his stuff.

  4. That was one heck of a keynote! I admit to a “wtf?” moment what I heard he was speaking, but his thoughts on telling new stories, through new channels, and taking risks go way beyond TV & movies.

    1. My favorite line was “you may be marketers or I may be an actor, but we are each trying to reach an audience.” Also, “As storytellers, we are nothing without our audience.” Good stuff!
