Watch Andrew Stanton’s “The clues to a great story” talk at TED
Filmmaker Andrew Stanton “Toy Story,” “WALL-E” shares what he knows about storytelling — starting at the end and working back to the beginning [ Contains Graphic Language ] Andrew Stanton has made you laugh and cry. The writer behind the three “Toy Story” movies and the writer/director of “WALL-E,” he releases his new film, “John Carter,” in March, 2012.
Andrew Stanton wrote the first film produced entirely on a computer, Toy Story. But what made that film a classic wasn’t the history-making graphic technology — it’s the story, the heart, the characters that children around the world instantly accepted into their own lives. Stanton wrote all three Toy Story movies at Pixar Animation Studios, where he was hired in 1990 as the second animator on staff. He has two Oscars, as the writer-director of Finding Nemo and WALL-E. And as Edgar Rice Burroughs nerds, we’re breathlessly awaiting the March opening of his fantasy-adventure movie John Carter.
