Walt's Window's Special - Stanton on Story

Andrew Stanton Presents at TED

How does one create story?  Director and screenwriter Andrew Stanton of Pixar fame and the soon to be released John Carter recently discussed this issue at TED.  TED (Technology, Entertainment, and Design) offers global conferences for thought leaders where "ideas worth sharing" are discussed. 

Warning, there is a usage of profanity in the video. 
I found this to provide great insight into how stories are created.  And I also enjoyed the window Stanton provides into the early days of Pixar.  This is the first time I have heard a Pixar leader discuss their rules including no songs, and how they were pressured to break those rules, or maybe guidelines.
