Pixar Studios is THE most successful filmmaking group in history. The biggest key to their success? Their understanding of and commitment to STORY.

In this presentation, you will immerse yourself in the movies and story-crafting world of Pixar, exploring these key themes present in their movies:

  • Special Subculture
  • Sires and Siblings
  • Separation
  • Strange Sojourners
  • Substantial Saga and Small Story
  • Stumbles and Switches
  • Sentimentality

Learn how the master storytellers at Pixar employ these narrative dynamics to imbue their movies with compelling themes and universal emotional appeal… and how you can use them, too, in your own writing.
