SEVA Talk

Here's a talk I did last month for the Sacramento Educational Cable Consortium regarding creative storytelling. My audience ranged in scope from elementary schoolers to college professors. Warning: I get very loud, so you may want to turn down the volume. For maximum educational value, go ahead and mute me altogether.

Thank you for posting, I'm taking lots of notes=) What a great layout of story development. Thanks Austin and congrats to you guys on the Oscar for Brave! My daughter wears the giant red hair often and shoots the bows and arrows around the house.

Bow and arrows not bows is correct but she has two and literally shoots the bows also. Oh the joys of being 5!

Austin, thanks for posting this. I've always been interested in story telling, but lately I've really been trying to become a better writer. Your method of outlining the basics of the story really simplified things for me.

Awesome talk, man! You said more about story in that 60 minutes that we get in the weeks and weeks of story classes at work. And you threw in a lot of great jokes too. Great stuff.

Thanks for posting this! I need to start more projects with a good primal scream. I really enjoy the teamwork aspect of it and how you share the "you actually can do this" attitude with highly-nutritious brain food in your presentation.

I've seen the Eere ees my first geeneeus, I vas eenspired by a valling leev. Eere ees my zecond geeneeus...Zank yoo und hav happy night. in my industry and it's so frustrating. I get much more from learning the thought process or having a teacher push me through my idea rather than trying to "get" his work.

Anyway, excelsior work as always, sir!
