    Matthew’s class is really valuable to anyone who is interested in filmmaking or animation. It was very interesting to learn about the story spine, and I appreciated his cinematography advice. I put everything he taught me into my current work.

  • Warren

    The wealth of knowledge and hands on experience you gave us in your story seminar and workshop are going to have a lasting impact!

  • Hazel Marshall

    Matthew's classes are a must have for anyone who wants to know how to tell a great story whichever medium they work in. He has a genuine love and knowledge of story, which shines through in every seminar.

  • Cortnee

    Student

    I'm interested in storyboarding, so this class was a wonderful help, especially aspects like the story spine, character development and the language of cinematography. One of the most helpful aspects was how Matthew encouraged all of us to not only work hard, but to work smart by understanding the different kinds of story processes- and even how to develop our own.

  • Ed

    Just wanted to say thank you for an informative and entertaining day at Matthew’s story seminar in New York. Both myself, and my students enjoyed it thoroughly. I was able to add a number of tricks to my quiver! Take care!

    Matthew's Story Workshop at The Walt Disney Family Museum was inspiring, full of energy and gave a clear explanation of the story process from beginning to end. There was a wide experience range among the students that participated, but whether they were a pro or just getting started everyone had something to take away from Matthew’s story workshop.

    Attending Matthew’s story workshop has made a drastic difference in growing my business and my understanding of why I am in my business. By learning why we tell stories and how to effectively tell a story, I am now able to look at my story and write it in a way that can communicate to my clients and staff.

  • Randy Nelson

    Rarely, you’re told a story so clearly, yet with such a sense of discovery and surprise, you find yourself living it, on many levels, simultaneously. Imagine if that story was a story about how the best storytellers make stories. Matthew provides just that balanced magic in his presentation of storytelling. Matthew makes better stories possible.

    Matthew's masterclass and story workshop in LA last month was amazing! It was so refreshing being in a room filled with talented people talking story, practicing story, and not only seeing what I was good at but what I needed improvement on.

  • Morgan

    It was unbelievable to hear exactly what goes into the process of creating great stories at Pixar. It's only recently that I became interested in potentially being a story artist, so when I heard about the class, I was just like, fate! I am so glad I came because Matthew’s story class really helped me get excited about art and writing.

  • Mark Brownlow

    Over the course of two days Matthew helped sculpt three compelling stories for the BBC. It was probably the most constructive two days on the entire production, thank you Matthew for your wisdom and entertaining us so much!

  • Madeline Sharafian

    I had so much fun learning about story with Matthew! He made sure that everything was clearly explained, so when we jumped into an assignment we were prepared and excited to take it on. Matthew's ability to brainstorm inspired us to keep reaching for the answers even when we ran into problems!

  • Brittney

    I just wanted to thank Matthew so much for his lecture yesterday in New York. This is the second time that I've heard hin speak and every time I leave I feel extremely inspired and ready to take on the world!
