A new Stanton interview
Mornin’ gentle Barsoomians…. Bill Hillman of Erbzine has discovered a new ( and different ) interview with Andrew Stanton. I was particularly interested in how hard he works to invest the story with resonance and timelessness. I personally subscribe to ‘stories are unearthed’ which perhaps explains why I’m open to multiple takes on material.
Have you guys read Spice World in The Road to Dune ? It’s a short novel based on Herbert’s original outline. I really like it. It stands on it’s own quite well, and shows something about the creative process. I think a story can be like jazz where multiple angles of discovery illuminate different aspects while at the same time, through their multiplicity, revealing the core.
Anyways, it’s time for more coffee. Read the interview here at Stanton Interview
