You’re welcome, Matt. I’m a huge Pixar freak, admire them so much for their commitment to Story-first and last-so I look for anything from members of their ‘braintrust’ when they discuss their process. Hence this TED Talk and me going through it to put together a word for word transcription.
BTW I will be teaching my popular one-week Pixar and the Craft of Storytelling class in January. Adding both Inside Out and The Good Dinosaur to the mix. I’m even teaching an expanded version of that class at DePaul next quarter.
As I say, I love Pixar as storytellers!
