This is just a quick post to pass along a great new video from Michael Arndt, the writer of Little Miss Sunshine and Toy Story 3.

And what is especially great about it is that he makes clear that he is not pushing a formula or saying that his approach is the only viable approach to stories. As I’ve written before, there are no rules, and there are no prohibitions when it comes to stories. I’m still watching the video and will probably write more about it in another post. Enjoy.
