Pixar Adds A Storytelling Class To Its Khan Academy Lineup

A couple of years ago, Khan Academy and Pixar teamed up for Pixar in a Box, a series of courses meant to show off how Pixar gets things done. They have expanded their initial offering quite a bit since launch, and now they have added a storytelling section.

As you’d expect, the first course is an introduction, running through some basic concepts of drafting stories, plotting and world building. Next up will be a closer look at characters. This joins the already robust set of free classes in Pixar in a Box, including courses on 3D character modelling, virtual cameras and colour science. Of course, while Pixar has always been great from a technical point of view, it’s their stories that often set them apart from the rest, so this new course is a welcome sight. You can check it out for free over at Khan Academy.
