What do Mr. Potato Head and Edward Scissorhands have in common? More than you probably realize! Both are featured in the episode of ‘On Story’ appearing tonight on KACV at 5:30. Writer Caroline Thompson and director John Lasseter (of Pixar fame) discuss the importance of storytelling and its place at the core of filmmaking. Following the interviews are two featured short films.
In case you missed last week’s episode, ‘On Story’ is a television series centered around those unsung heroes and heroines of filmmaking. The Austin Film Festival features various writers, producers, and directors in a classic Q & A set-up. If you’re interested in seeing last week’s episode, the archive is readily available on their website: http://video.klru.tv/program/on-story/
‘On Story’ is a great source of information condensed into a half hour show. If you’re interested in filmmaking or any aspect of the inner workings of film, you should tune into KACV this evening at 5:30P and join me tomorrow for a Double Take!
