Former Pixar storyboard artist Emma Coats tweeted the company's 22 tips for storytelling excellence. This list is making the rounds, so it's time we share it with our readers.
Everybody loves a good list, and, boy, do we have a great one for you today. This list first surfaced back in 2011, when young storyboard artist Emma Coats spread out 22 tweets over two months, relaying Pixar's tenets for crafting effective stories. Coat's tweets have been compiled and republished from time to time in writers' blogs, but we believe it still hasn't gotten its due; it's really that good. Here, we reprint the list in its entirety. Enjoy!
