28 Feb The clues to a good story – Andrew Stanton, Film Maker
When we work with children and young people to get inside the world of a story, to explore the thoughts and feelings of characters we’re aiming for them to use what they know and build on it. To build through imagination, interaction and enquiry so that they can try out new ideas and perspectives, to use drama to make meaningful connections with the world beyond the classroom.
In this great Ted talk Film Maker Andrew Stanton talks about ways story tellers draw audiences in and his process of forming a story “use what you know, draw from it” reflects the process of understanding and unpacking the meaning in stories that we use.
