There is evidence that narratives told in a structured manner are more likely to be convincing to an audience. Design Fictions are an increasingly popular medium in HCI. It is important that we make our stories believable so that they can be more readily accepted. Looking beyond the laboratory, this chapter discusses and presents story telling techniques that have been adopted in professional story telling environments such as film making. Rather than a prescriptive set of instructions this chapter offers concepts for consideration when creating fictions.
