Methodik: Creativity Process: A Sensory - Emotional Journey (gLV) 

Only fearless filmmakers and visual storytellers will be able to get to the core of a story, fictional or documentary. Fearless means, to know your position from where you tell a story, to sense your relationship to your characters or the people you interview or follow with your camera. Spatial relationship is the core of filmmaking and visual storytelling, the core of your very own creativity process.
