Technology and The Evolution of Storytelling

A really insightful speech from Pixar director John Lasseter about using the technology that interests you for its strengths. 

The kind of shots you can get from an iPhone that you cannot get with any other camera. Use it.

GoPros: use it. Be inspired by it.

Try things. It’s digital. Get another memory card, for God’s sake.

You will start creating ideas that lend themselves to these things and start looking new.

What shines through is his and Pixar’s commitment to story at all times. He says it trumps technology…but declines to share any knowledge about narrative himself.
