Doing nothing but working on the stories

“The challenge on Nemo is the challenge we had on the first Toy Story which was making a good movie.  It really comes down to that. Each film has its own technical hurdles that we have to overcome but we spend the first two and a half years of the films doing nothing but working on the stories.” – Lee Unkrich, Co-Director  “Finding Nemo”

How long do you spend developing the story you want to tell?  Too often, we jump right in front of the computer and start putting slides together for the presentation we have to give or typing words for the article we have to write.  Next time, take a minute to fine-tune your story away from your desk.  Focus on what you want the audience to remember.
