At the heart of every good story is…

Hi all,

Last week we considered the importance of structure in providing the framework on which each of our scenes hang. Something that is true for writing in any format as it is for writing animation.

That said, my experience is that often the most entertaining and readable notes on character and plot development come from those who write animation – Now, I’m not sure why? Whether it’s a case that the characters are better drawn or more easily recognised, I don’t know. What I do know is that its readable and the advice is good for all in regard to story, plot and creating fantastic characters.

Okay, this week’s resource is from writer and blogger Stephen Vladimir Bugaj who offers advice from his years working at Pixar.

Stephen lists some great sites on his website where you can also download  his ’22 Rule of Story’.’ Find it by clicking here:

Til next time –
