Do you consider yourself to be resourceful?

When interpreting a script, you need to work with what you have to tell a story convincingly and with heart. Good storytelling demands your all.

This week, I happened to see a video featuring the story of the Landfill Harmonic, a tale that brings tears to your eyes and warms the heart.

Take a look at how a group of people in Paraguay are making beauty from ashes in today's VOX Daily.

Landfill Harmonic

Have you ever seen a story unfold that you just had to share?

While waiting for my daughter's piano lesson to end, I happened to learn about the Landfill Harmonic website and the Recycled Orchestra.

"The world generates about a billion tons of garbage a year. Those who live with it and from it are the poor - like the people of Cateura, Paraguay. And here they are transforming it into beauty. Landfill Harmonic follows the Orchestra as it takes its inspiring spectacle of trash-into-music around the world. Follow the lives of a garbage picker, a music teacher and a group of children from a Paraguayan slum that out of necessity started creating instruments entirely out of garbage. Landfill Harmonic is a beautiful story about the transformative power of music, which also highlights two vital issues of our times: poverty and waste pollution." -Landfill Harmonic

Here's a link to watch the Landfill Harmonic video on YouTube.

What Kind of a Story Are You Telling?

What struck you most about the Landfill Harmonic video? Are you using any of these techniques to tell your story?

Looking forward to your reply!

Best wishes,

    Not a word was needed, nor could a scriptwriter invent the situation. Utterly poor children bringing forth great music from pieces of tin, their beautiful faces alight with joy. Overwhelming. Thanks for posting. Sharing this now with friends.
