I was lucky enough to get into one of the classes Bobette Buster taught at Pixar last year. Her class focused on short films for a weekend, and a lot of what she talks about sticks with you, it’s good stuff. One thing she said that blew my mind (cause it’s true): “Cinema is an experience, not a message.”


The video above is more about WHY we tell stories and is full of amazing quotes.

Audience wants “to be taken into a world they’d otherwise never get to experience, where the ordinary becomes extraordinary”


on sharing your own personal experience, your own dark times: “you can empower and embolden a person – that’s the power of enchantment in storytelling.”


“ultimately, all stories are about either someone becoming fully alive or becoming the living dead.”


Watch the rest of the video for 20 minutes of great storytelling thoughts.
