We have been fascinated with storytelling almost since the dawn of man. It started out as a form of survival then evolved into a way of preserving history, but it's always been entertaining. Yet there is an art to good storytelling. Phil Valentine and Campbell Valentine look at how storytelling has evolved into a multi-billion-dollar industry. They also discover that there are basic elements that nearly every good story employs. From blockbuster movies to bestseller books to hit TV shows. They all tell a story, and many of them tell that story in almost exactly the same way.
