Pixar's 22 Rules of Storytelling as Image Macros Back in 2011, then Pixar storyboard artist Emma Coats (now freelancing) tweeted 22 rules of storytelling, according to Pixar. Coats learned the ‘guidelines’ from senior colleagues on how to create appealing stories, tweeting the nuggets of wisdom over a 6 week period. Last week, artist and User Experience Director at Visceral Games (a subsidiary of Electronic Arts), Dino Ignacio, created a series of image macros of the 22 rules and posted them to Imgur and Reddit.

Pull-down is a process that adds redundant fields to video in order to distribute 24 frames per second into the NTSC standard of 29.97 frames per second. See Frame Rate Basics for more information. Some camcorders, such as the Panasonic AG-DVX100, are designed to shoot in progressive mode at 24 fps (literally 23.98 fps) and then record the video to tape as a 60-field interlaced signal by applying a special kind of pull-down called advanced 2:3:3:2 pull-down.
