Today we are talking about where stories come from, specifically how they emerge out of our personal experiences and unique perspective. We'll talk about the inspiration behind The Hunger Games, Spielberg's aliens, and the critically panned Cars 2.
When I say that stories come from people, I mean that stories are also inseparable from their creators. They communicate a point of view, a collection of values, and the specific life experiences of their authors.
I mention a lot of different films in this episode so here are my sources if you want to know more:
Suzanne Collin on the Inspiration for the Hunger Games
David S Goyer's Screenwriting Lecture
Scott, Linklater, and Russell's Personal Experiences
John Lasseter on Cars 2
