#19. Why do PIXAR movies make us cry? (Animator Matthew Luhn talks storytelling in business)

If you’ve ever seen the first few minutes of the PIXAR movie UP!, you’re very aware that stories have the capacity to move you to tears.

PIXAR animator Matthew Luhn might be the one to blame for this.

Having worked on a few classics such as Toy Story, Ratatouille & The Incredibles, Luhn shares in a 2017 TED Talk what it is that makes stories like this so successful—and how we can we apply that to our own work and life.

For Mikey and Molly, this is a breakthrough episode. We’re seeing patterns in the story structures our favorites are talking about and connecting some significant dots.

A TED Talk not to be missed and a discussion that is sure to stir up your PIXAR nostalgia.
