with Scott Myers
Pixar Studios is the most successful filmmaking group in the history of Hollywood. The biggest key to their success? Their understanding of and commitment to story.
In this presentation, Scott Myers distills his DePaul University School of Cinematic Arts course “Pixar: Craft of Storytelling” to seven narrative dynamics evident in the studios’ movies:
- Special Subculture
- Sires & Siblings
- Strange Sojourners
- Small Story / Substantial Saga
- Stumbles, Switches, & Surprise
See how Pixar filmmakers use these narrative instincts and learn how you can adopt them when crafting your own stories.
