The Meaning that Drives Your Craft

        
 

 

 

When we sit down at the movie theatre, we have a pretty big expectation. We want to experience a compelling tale about a hero who goes on an adventure, faces a crisis, wins a victory and returns home – transformed.  We want to see the lead character be evicted from their comfort zone, stretched or challenged, thrown into an abyss of darkness and grow a pair of wings on the way down!

By turning your artist eye inwards towards your own life, you not only fall in love with your lead character (yourself)  but you can also uncover a path to their victory!  And as you understand the fundamentals of creating a great story and leading 100% with meaning, you not only experience an amazing upgrade in your story building abilities – but also in your life!

RYAN WOODWARD is a storyboard artist / animator / filmmaker, currently at Paramount Studios.  His personal projects include Thought of You and Bottom of the Ninth.  He's worked on many films, such as The Avengers, Snow White and the Huntsman, Cowboys and Aliens, Ironman 2, Spider-man 2 and 3, Where the Wild Things Are, The Iron Giant, Space Jam.
