About this learning circle:
In this small-group learning circle, we will get an inside view of the storytelling process at Pixar and build insight about how to write stronger stories. This course involves examining Pixar animations, watching video clips of Pixar animators describing their process, and participating in brainstorming activities and conversations to help us tackle our own creative processes. The content is especially relevant for anyone interested in visual storytelling, but the conversations are helpful for anyone looking to develop compelling stories with authentic characters.
Week 1: We are all storytellers
Week 2: Character
Week 3: Story Structure
Week 4: Visual Language
Week 5: Film Grammar
Week 6: Pitching and Feedback
What is a learning circle?
College Unbound and Peer 2 Peer University have partnered to create free, credit-bearing, and credentialed learning opportunities for adults that are hosted in libraries, community nonprofits, and any space where lifelong learning is valued.
These learning opportunities, known as learning circles, are peer-facilitated groups that go through college level course content, and can be taken for fun, for College Unbound college credit, and/or for employer-facing credentials.
For those interested in College Unbound credit: This learning circle can earn between 1.0 – 3.0 credit hours. (Completion of the learning journal can earn 1.0 credit, while an additional 2.0 credits are possible through the completion of two “storybook” assignments.)
