Toy Story 3 has been by far the most exquisite screenplay hitting the screens this year. Yes, it was developed over about twenty man years and yes, an army of geniuses contributed to the story. But then writer Michael Arndt stepped in and finished the job.
I haven’t seen or heard many interviews with Arndt and moving images with the man are even rarer. So I wanted to go back to a video of a few years ago in which Arndt speaks about Little Miss Sunshine, his approach to writing and other stuff you’d like to hear.
To see the whole program, you’ll have to click in the bottom right of the video screen once the clip is rolling, otherwise it stops right after the clip from Little Miss Sunshine.

Karel Segers wrote his first produced screenplay at age 17. Today he is a story analyst with experience in acquisition, development and production. He has trained students worldwide, and worked with half a dozen Academy Award nominees. Karel speaks more European languages than you have fingers on your left hand, which he is still trying to find a use for in his hometown of Sydney, Australia. The languages, not the fingers.
