Telling a story with our work can often be one of the most challenging things we face as creatives. But it’s also one of the most important. Whether it’s a drawing, a photograph or a film, having your work tell a story gives it meaning. It speaks to the viewer in a way that they can relate to it. According to Pixar, we are all story tellers. Every single one of us. Even if we don’t all know how to tap into it.
In this six part series, from Khan Academy Labs, directors, animators and other Pixar wizards talk to us about storytelling. How we naturally tell stories in the real world without even realising it. And how to look at some of our favourite movies and works to figure out what the story is and why it works. And, oh yes, there are activities!
