Occasionally I like to just pass along a video with limited comment. Last time was Amanda Palmer talking about the fraud police. Today it’s Andrew Stanton. Stanton wrote three Toy Story movies, Wall-E, Finding Nemo, and Monsters Inc. In February he delivered a talk at TED Long Beach about the art and craft behind story telling. At points it does turn into a commercial for his upcoming John Carter movie, but it also explains how a teller of stories millions love learned how to tell stories. So give it a watch, it’s a good use of 20 minutes. I’ll warn of one f-bomb in the first 70 seconds, otherwise it’s clean.
