Pixar’s Storytelling Process

I watched this before I’d heard of The Hero’s Journey but it’s interesting to look back and see how similar the structure is. I’d also heard of this structure in Brian McDonald’s book Invisible Ink (2010) which I need to read again.

The structure:

  1. Once upon a time…(your protagonist)
  2. And every day…
  3. Until one day…
  4. And because of this…(events correlate/happen for a reason).
  5. And because of this…
  6. Until finally…
  7. And ever since that day…
