We were recently privileged to have DreamWorks storyman and director Steve Hickner visit and give a couple of fantastic lectures. The first was on story structure, and this is part one of that presentation. Part two will be posted shortly.
Note: this presentation relies heavily on multiple film clips; the audio from the clips (as recorded in the presentation) is included in this podcast, and the overall message comes through quite clearly. However, Steve does allude to some visual elements that you may want to see for yourself, so you may want to get a copy of the films mentioned and watch them to get the full value of the presentation.
Again, a big thanks to Steve for visiting us and imparting such valuable knowledge.
