015: A Lesson In Nostalgia

This episode on Pathfinder we unpick what makes nostalgia such an effective storytelling tool. Looking at the work of film poster artist Drew Struzan we take you on a journey to find out why sometimes judging a book by it's cover isn't such a bad thing.

Hello Pathfinders. This is the first in a series of episodes on nostalgia. When we tell stories the ultimate thing you can do is hold a place in the heart of your audience, it's a mixture of emotion and experience. To work out what sparks this level of connection we looked to the career of Drew Struzan, world-renowned film poster artist. You may not know his name, but you've seen his work thousands of times over the course of your life.

This episode is for you if you want to develop a deeper connection with your audience and learn just what makes someone's heart skip a beat, even after they've experienced your work.
