Stephan Vladimir Bugaj: "After Pixar story artist Emma Coats tweeted Pixar's 22 rules of storytelling in 2011, quite a few people have riffed off of those rules. In the case of Stephan Vladimir Bugaj, a Pixar employee of 12 years, he's decided to elaborate on them."

Change needs story, and few people are better at it than Pixar. Here's the scoop on how they do it!
The ultimate challenge: how to make audience feel it?
22 rules to rule the world
Lance Weiler: "The last few years have seen a rise in filmmakers who are extending the stories they tell beyond a single medium" ....
Charlie Jane Ander: "Today's escapist storytellers share a rich legacy, from classic TV to great SF novels. But most of us also guzzled superhero comics during our formative years" ...
An interesting list!
La idea del "cambio ilusorio" de Stan Lee me sorprendió muchísimo. Lo demás fue medio "meh" porque, aunque tiene un punto en eso de los errores de narración, hay que ver que el público meta de los cómics (en especial los de antes) eran hombres adolescentes. Violencia + personajes femeninos de apoyo eran un home hit.
Richard Brody: "The fulsome orthodoxy of Pixar’s twenty-two storytelling rules goes far beyond a single company’s flavor spectrum to a crisis that is endemic to the modern cinema" ...
An interesting and rather unexpected take on Pixar's 22 Rules of Storytelling.
I thought it was a bit like, "Whatever Works" and then it seems to be almost science. Some of the rules are psychological exercises that don’t relate to composition but to a writer’s self-knowledge.Read more: http://www.newyorker.com/online/blogs/movies/2013/03/pixar-disney-cgi-processed-storytelling.html#ixzz2NaiOS3pr
Lucas J.W. Johnson: "An article today on NPR about fantasy world-building suggests that what was once for the most outcast of nerds is (along with general geekdom) gaining more widespread acceptance [...]"
Lucas Johnson provides a transmedia context to yesterday's scoop: At Home In Fantasy's Nerd-Built Worlds.
Very cool! Joseph Campbell's Hero's Journey illustrated with Lego figures. (Starts fully at slide 6.)
Could this 65 slide deck have saved me plowing through Joseph Campbell's Hero With A Thosand Faces? Not really, but its fun and flies by providing ADD insight into the basis of all stories.
Geoff Livingston: "Stories told across multi-platform media environments — or transmedia stories as they are commonly called on the edge — require more complex writing. A story unfolds across diverse media with readers/viewers opting in to each layer."
Mike Jones: "Like any narrative genre, Post-Apocalyptic fiction can be understood as a response to social fears - a metaphoric framework for exploring ideas about humanity that stem directly from where we are in the present day " ...
Ari Karpel: "Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, two of the writer-producers of Star Trek Into Darkness and next summer’s The Amazing Spider-man 2 lay out five rules for a successful movie franchise collaboration."
Warning this article contains a "couple of Star Trek Into Darkness spoilers (you have seen it by now, right?)"
The longtime writing partners’ impressive track record includes the previous Star Trek movie, Mission: Impossible 3,a couple of Transformers movies, and next year’s Spider-Man sequel.
They laid out their rules for crafting a summer blockbuster that is both popular and good.

From Casablanca to The Killing – the elements of a great script are essentially the same. John Yorke – reveals how and why the best screenwriting works
How to take basic story structure and turn it into great screenwriting ....
The art and the discipline of screenwriting. A long read but worth it.
The art of screenwriting.
Mike Springer: "Before he was a big game hunter, before he was a deep-sea fisherman, Ernest Hemingway was a craftsman who would rise very early in the morning and write."
This one's for writers everywhere ...
I began this travel of storytelling with Hemingway never wrote a treatise on the art of writing fiction. He did, however, leave behind a great many passages in letters, articles and books with opinions and advice on writing. First rule: To get started, write one true sentence.
Toujours apprendre des plus grands ...
Saladin Ahmed: "What attracts people to fantasy? Is it the orcs and the elves, or the rich worlds they inhabit?"
How much detail is too much detail when building fantasy story worlds?
Chuck Wendig: "With NaNoWriMo about to storm surge the writer (and wannabe-writer) community, this seems a good time to both tickle your pink parts and jam my boot up your boothole in terms of getting your penmonkey asses motivated. So, here goes — 25 motivational thoughts for writers, starting in 3… 2… 1…"
Leila Johnston: "Transmedia can be a controversial word, but it was embraced by the Lab, which explored the value of ‘immersive entertainment’ – stories told across more than one medium, playing with the boundaries of the real world, and often requiring participation from the audience"
Engagement increasingly requires a new relationship to the arts -- not just digital and not just witnessing an event. Immersing in the experience is the penultimate.
