Ken Burns: On Story

Ken Burns is the king of PBS – his history specials and miniseries are known throughout the US as evocative, realistic portrayals of American History. He is arguably the most well-known documentary film maker of our time. The following short documentary, Ken Burns: On Story, gives us the filmmakers insights and ideas on the craft of story.

The film originally appeared in The Atlantic as, Ken Burns on Why His Formula for a Great Story Is 1+1=3 and was also discussed  on Brainpickings.

One thought on “Ken Burns: On Story

  1. He is something special, isn’t he! I think that I have eventually seen at least all of his series that I’ve been aware of…we are currently working through “Baseball” on Netflix. My husband was most interested, and although I have no interest in the sport, Ken Burns makes even that interesting to me! Debra
