    This is a great break down to finding a good plot line. Pixar is a great company to model after. This was a good reminder of how important it is to have a good formula to your story. Thanks for sharing the inspiration.

    It’s funny how much I don’t want to follow “the formula”, yet I can pick out nearly every point of what he described for setting up a story in my screenplay. I guess it just gets drilled into your subconscious when you watch movies.
