Off to find some pebbles

This is a great video on story telling. Andrew Stanton has had quite a bit of success telling stories. The lessons he shares are good ones. Now the challenge will be to bring them to life.

"Don't give [the audience] four; give them two plus two.”

“Change is fundamental in story. If things go static, stories die.”

“The greatest story commandment is: Make me care.”

“A major threshold is passed when you mature enough to acknowledge what drives you, and to take the wheel and steer it.”

“A well told promise is like a pebble being pulled back in a slingshot.”

I am off to find some pebbles. Have you found your pebble yet?
