Google Storytellers Ad

"That's what's so special about stories - they're not predictable." During the Oscars show on ABC, Google aired a commercial they call "We're All Storytellers", a wonderful 60-second spot build mainly around a part of the speech Pixar filmmaker Andrew Stanton (who won Oscars for Wall-E and Finding Nemo) gave in a TED Talk in 2012. I will fully admit that the TV spot made me tear up, just because it's so beautifully put together, and I don't care that it's a bit cheesy or a bit prophetic, I love it, and I admire what it's saying. Google knows how to make stellar ads built around stories, and here they show they know the dynamics of great storytelling. A perfect ad for the Oscars, and worth a highlight of its own. See the full Google ad below.

"We all love stories. We're born for them," says filmmaker Andrew Stanton (of Finding Nemo, Toy Story, Wall-E, John Carter) in this video that celebrates everyone who's ever had an idea, picked up a camera, or searched for a way to bring their story to life. I really do love this commercial, I admire the way it tells a sentimental story through footage and audio-visual interaction. Stanton's full speech about storytelling is wonderful and is a must watch if you haven't already seen it. See Andrew's full TED Talk about storytelling here: The version of this Google ad showed during the Oscars was slightly different, with a shot of Stanton at the Academy Awards. Still a lovely ad to share with all storytellers and movie lovers alike.
