We are all storytellers

Saturday, 18 February, 2017

In its own way, each daily post here, and here and here is a story. A rudimentary story, to be sure, but nevertheless a tale of some kind.

Story: Pixar, the subsidiary of The Walt Disney Company that specializes in computer animation, is partnering with the Khan Academy to offer a series of free online lessons in filmmaking called “Pixar in a Box”. Segments such as “Environment modeling” are fascinating, no doubt, but the most popular section for people of all ages and interests is bound to be “The Art of Storytelling.” What’s the secret? Blurb: “Storytelling is something we all do naturally, starting at a young age, but there’s a difference between good storytelling and great storytelling.” Hmmm. I could have said that. Still, Disney knows how to tell and sell stories so this should be worthwhile.
