2.0 su 5 stelle These "rules" aren't new. NOT from Pixar, or anyone who'd worked with them. Not proofread. Disappointing. 19 giugno 2016
Di Aisling D. - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I bought this book in print. Seeing the high price -- and the five-star reviews, despite it -- I expected some great, unique insights from someone who'd worked with Pixar, and perhaps some wonderful color illustrations from Pixar films, highlighting how they craft their stories.

When the book arrived yesterday, I saw that neither were true.

1) The book reads like a good, undergraduate thesis. It highlights several classic storytelling (and screenwriting) tropes and plot construction methods, with lengthy, scene-by-scene examples from almost every Pixar hit film, ever.

2) The printed book was published in color, which required a higher-than-average selling price. However, the only only interior illustration is a color photo of the author, plus blue text for the chapter numbers.

Another reviewer has mentioned the fact that this is good information, but amateurishly presented.

I agree. These "rules" are solid, familiar points I've read over & over again in excellent books by Jeffrey Alan Schechter, Blake Snyder, Shawn Coyne, Larry Brooks, and others.

And, as a Pixar and Disney fan, I'm kind of appalled that the book's title and thumbnail cover image (with the Pixar-ish desk lamp) suggest that the author has some connection with Pixar. It's why I bought this book.

He doesn't.

Sadly, the presentation issues don't end with the misleading title, subtitle, and cover design.

When I opened the book, instead of a title page, I saw a full page headed COPYRIGHTS. Yes, with an S. And then the standard copyright blurb. It's a little difficult to get past such an obvious typo in letters a half-inch tall.

The second page...? A disclaimer that concludes: "The author and publisher are not affiliate [sic] with Pixar or Walt Disney Animation Studios." Another glaring typo, and no mention that Pixar and related names are trademarked. (That's odd, for someone who makes his own copyright such a high priority.)

I never found a title page.

However, despite the book's amateurish first impression, I was STILL hoping to read some wonderful insights about storytelling.

Some of the information in the book is okay. Mostly, it's a fan's opinions of how Pixar tells engaging stories.

He makes some good points. Far more are confusing, at best. Due to grammar and punctuation problems, I frequently had to stop and re-read sentences, sometimes several times, to understand what the author intended to say.

A bigger problem: the author seems to assume we're familiar with every Pixar film. I've seen most, but not all of them.

So, when the author talks about "the scene where....," in a movie I haven't seen, I'm clueless. Whatever point he was making is diluted. In some cases (even if I've seen the film multiple times), his points entirely elude me.

When the author came up with this book concept, it was probably seemed like a good idea. If he rewrites this, possibly from the ground up, it might work. I'm not sure.

As I see it, these are the book's main problems:

- The cover and title need to make it clear this is NOT a Pixar book. The author ISN'T sharing an insider's views from Pixar's story creation process.
- This book's basic content -- the "rules" -- aren't new. Others, especially Schechter and Snyder, have explained them more effectively.
- The author seems to assume we'll "get it" if he simply references Pixar scenes. That may work well in conversations he's had, but in many cases, even when I'd seen the related film many times, I still wasn't sure of this author's points.
- This book needs proofreading to correct confusing grammar and punctuation. It probably needs thorough editing, too.
- Improved formatting could provide a better first impression and improve the reading experience. Justified margins are just one improvement I'd suggest.
- This book's price is far too high. Had the author been willing to leave out the full-color photo of himself, a b&w interior would have allowed him to price this book more appropriately.

"Pixar Storytelling" isn't entirely awful, but it's NOT a five-star book. The best I can give it is two stars, and that may be too high.

I'm returning this book to Amazon.

2.0 su 5 stelle Kindle version is a joke 16 giugno 2016
Di Chad Duffey - Pubblicato su
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Do not buy the kindle edition of this book. This book will not open on my Kindle Paperwhite or my phone. This will only open on my laptop and Kindle Fire. It is very inconvenient to read on my Kindle Fire, and it is like reading a PDF document on my laptop. You cannot take advantage of the vocabulary builder. You cannot change the font size. It does not show the percent complete in the chapter or book. The table of contents does not have any links. I did find a few typos that I could not report to Amazon.

When you get past the really bad formatting, the context of this book is good. The author breaks down Pixar story telling into 10 different subjects. Some of the subjects are choosing an idea, creating empathy, and creating drama/conflict. He even has a message for Aspiring Artist. He uses examples of all of the Pixar films from Toy Story to Inside Out. This book does give me a different perspective on Pixar’s movies, and TED talks, and Toastmaster’s speeches.

The kindle version of this book is very bad, and does take advantage of many of the kindle features. You will find the context of this book good if you do not mind reading this book on your laptop. The publisher really needs to fix the kindle version of this book, or amazon needs to lower the price.

5.0 su 5 stelle Really Excellent... These Guys Know How To Tell A Story! 10 agosto 2016
Di GameMaker - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I've taken a couple of screenwriting classes now, and read a number of books on screenwriting, and this, despite it's diminutive size, is one of my favorites. It very concisely spells out some of the concepts of how to build compelling stories (and compelling characters!), with lots of examples from the Pixar movies. To me it's a crutch to fall back on when I'm writing my own story. A review of these principals helps me focus my story. Really really good!

It's a good read. I was hoping for a more indepth formula of the Pixar storytelling process but nonetheless a good over all evaluation.
