i havent watched finding nemo but i feel like i just swallowed a major spoiler
12:08 My story HAD a happy village…
The most profound and thoughtful and well constructed class in story writing I’ve ever seen. I’ve never seen any of the Pixar films but his remarks on story construction are profound and universal. They apply to all story, from Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby to Mitchell’s Gone With the Wind, Or To Kill a Mickingnird, Steinbeck’s East of Eden, from Wuthering Heights and Rebecca to Casablanca, Bridge on the River Kwai, The Wild Bunch, The Godfather, All good novels and films have these themes and structure running through them. This is deep and very impactful – a lot to think about and use.
Ooo…that's why I always get an idea of end before the ending.
Wall E such a cute movie!
Engaging and highly motivating speech mixed with terrific acting and story telling from the beginning till the end.
Reminds me of Seth McFarlane just a tad.
41 seconds in and I'm switching off for the bad accent lmfao
Have never seen Wall E although I have watched John Carter about 4 times on cable.
Loved it when he said “drama is anticipation. How do you construct anticipation… what’ll happen next? “
But just stop the embarrassing attempt at a Scottish accent when you sound nothing like a Scotsman.
Make me care. I love it.
"The Unifying Theory of 2 + 2" 7:28Interesting theory
all his movies sucked esp john carter
Wow it's just great tq
So McGregor's Irish? (says a Glaswegian who used to live in the highlands) 😛
That joke was sooo not worth a "woooo!"
I started clapping in my home
I kind of wondering why Andrew wants to give a TED talks. Because of the economic model of TED conference, every single TED talkers went to stage aim to sell their product. This makes me wondering what is Andrew selling here, and it's not really obvious…
Thank you very much Pixar switch villians. The movie is The Bridge Over The River Kwai. At a story and stakes level what is in pretty much every scene is The Dramatic Question. In Bridge it is "is life inherently meaningful and ordered, or not?" That's not answered until the end. Reservoir dogs"is there honor amongst thieves?" All the other stuff is guideline and mostly bunk.
John Carter of Mars made me care – not to watch the movie.
Sounds like a rip off of Hitchcocks definition of drama.Drama is life with all the dull parts taken out.
his joke was gross but i get his point,but now i have to think of a different joke asap
Stories are only meaningful within the context of an albeit extended reality that your consciousness could still relate to; hence, they may be fantastic and multidimensional, but they are nonetheless inherently confined. Transcendental confinement is at the core of a meaningful story.
Dude, the movie at 4:15 is so weird, like, really weird.
This man should write a star wars movie.
Storytelling is joke telling.1. We all love stories2. Make me care – give promise that will lead someone says it’s worth your time 3. Storytelling with dialogue 4. Make the audience put things together… give 2 + 2 … don’t give 4 5. Drama = anticipation + uncertainty 6. MAKE THEM THINKING 7. Use what you know
Really inspiring and moving 👌
but that (non) scottish accent though cringe
the director of one of the best Disney films ever: Finding Nemo
The beginning of his story reminds me of having any conversation with any man in my family. My husband is an electrician, my brother is an electrician and my step dad is a plasterer. There isn’t anywhere you can go where one of them hasn’t done some kind of work. You see that house there… you see that barn there … you see that pub there …. 🤦🏼♀️
Dear god that ending
Make me Care.Give you a promise.Well organized absence of information that draws us in. Drama is anticpation mingled with uncertainty.Wonder.
Best ted episode ever
12:10 but you don't need a love story in everything, though? It can work with some stories but it doesn't need to be hammered in everywhere. Sometimes it can actually prove as a detriment to the story
Dumbest Ted talk ever. The movie clips were the only thing with substance. The only thing I'll remember from this is the gutter joke at the beginning. Dude can't even start with a tasteful joke let alone teach anybody about storywriting or life in general. Stick to the cartoons Andy.
first joke stolen from Norm Macdonald
Great video. Informative. I wrote a novel, Death Bridge, a horror story, based in Daingerfield, Texas. The premise of the story is, "What if there are unexplained accidents and related tragic deaths on a bridge, and what if it keeps escalating day by day?" That idea got my story going. The novel is available on Amazon.
Doctor said, "Don't worry Mam, your son Andrew will grow up to tell a filthy joke to over a million people one day. I know, I'm a doctor."
note: let's fxxk a goat
This guy just made me love No Country for Old Men more. Damn that movie is so fucking good
Whose watching this at the end of game of thrones being a let down?
What makes worth my time watching this video is there is your name on it "Andrew Stanton"
I'm so inspired!
I heard Chris Pratt tell that first joke in German. I love it
Nobody realizes that he's the voice actor of MINE Seagulls in Finding Nemo
My priest told me the goat joke.
That was awe inspiring!!
And that's how I got here, typing this comment in the comment section.What do you mean you still don't care?
I have great story but poor vocabulary?
5:24 – 6:25
for what it's worth, my tip is even after the point in the story where the viewer has had to work to put the pieces together, it can still be dangerous and counterproductive to spoon-feed the final answer afterwards out of fear that some lazy or tired viewers won't do the work, it would be like a currency has been devalued when the answers are given easily for free
This was the best Ted Talk EVER
Eh, who pulled Woody's string.
He tells you how to tell a story by telling you a story, oh what a story.
this is a very, very bad "Scottish" accent : (
John Carter is very good movie. Very unappreciated, with good soudtrack.
My top 3 favorite animated movies are Bambi, WALL-E and Finding Nemo 🙂
Many thanks for your service to humanity (Children, Adults) We enjoy your tremendous creativity, genius and hard work. God bless your heart & family Mr. Stanton.
Great story, Andrew.
John Carter is amazing. I suddenly care about where this talk is going.
Awesome talk, both of values and of great storytelling! Thank you, Andrew!
I've never seen any of those movies because they seem to have an ugly premise. I have a list similar to his, but I match each item with the rejection of that ugly premise: Focus on the powerful promise, Build anticipation, and Invoke Wonder, but don't assume a room temperature IQ for the audience. Stories that match this are my favorites.
Fantastic opening, the middle was kind of saturated with facts and knowledge which could have been better explained or broken down but given the time limit he was given, he made this talk really enriching and engaging. Phenomenal ending. Nothing less to expect from one of the best story tellers in the world.
it made me care when disney stole my script for finding dori.how about paying..? http ://theubie.com/k.htm
People like to summarize TED talks, which are already too brief. Andrew Stanton has transcended his craft and inspired countless millions to create, dream and dare to envision a compassionate and caring world. I came for tips on how to write my first opus, but I took away something much more meaningful – to make that second chance we are all given mean something.
LOVE this talk!!! Thank you!!!
John carter is a underrated movie
Ted talks sucks. Another promotion video for plastic toys. Interrupted everynow and then by other ads.
Who is that devil posing as woody!?
It's nice the fuel didn't evaporate in that zippo in the walle movie
Just checking GOT season 8 against this talk to see how it held up….
Well you certainly had me spellbound, laughing and in tears. Thank you.
Isn't McGregor from irland
No Country for Old Men’s another superlative example of a 2+2 film, i.e. using bodily and environmental storytelling to communicate information and characterization.
A Princess of Mars was far better than the John Carter film. Almost every change Stanton made to canon was a mistake. It was a poor adaptation.
Who decides what is negative u bore
Nice , great .
After watching this I’m going to add a 30 second sound effect at the end of my electronic music live set, a soundbyte that answers “who are you” with a new question that encompasses my work. Right now I’m adding the famous meme sound byte of that little boy saying “have you ever had a dream that—/-/-/—-…so much you could do anything?”
8:42 did he mix up marlin and Woody?
What's the meaning of: THE AUDIENCE WANTS TO WORK FOR THEIR MEAL? THANKS
The Ending .. ManOnly a Real Talented storywriter can finish this way .
He was talking in an Irish accent in the beginning. That's cultural appropriation. Shame on him
Great theme, we do care, like NEMO does @olgamlazin, #lazindrolga The Best stories Infuse Wander: the secret sauce is the Wander…
Best guidance I stumbled upon regarding writing ….
Why do people allow F-words to be uttered in public, and on stage like this? What has happened to our society?
