Pixar Storytelling

In case you didn't know about this, Pixar offers a free Storytelling course in conjunction with Khan Academy. I've been recommending it to my young students and the newer members of our critique group.

The course claims "There are few organizations in the world that can claim more expertise when it comes to storytelling than Pixar. The Disney-owned animation studio is known for its ability to consistently create world-class movies with gripping narrative alongside stunning visuals. Now, Pixar is helping others learn the secrets of great storytelling – for free, in partnership with online education provider Khan Academy.
The two have teamed up to create “Pixar In A Box,” and in this third installment of the series, lessons are sourced from Pixar directors and story artists including Inside Out and Up director Pete Docter, Brave director Mark Andrews, Inside Out story artist Domee Shi, and Ratatouille animator Sanjay Patel."

The first installment, The Art of Storytelling, is available now. The course, which includes video instruction, keeps track of your progress through email. The link to the course is  Pixar in a Box.

I've been going through the course myself, and have really enjoyed it. Check it out.
