Neat little detail I noticed on the scrubber for the videos on the South Park Studios site: each section (in between ads) is marked as an act, with a little portrait of each of the boys. Here’s Trey Parker and Matt Stone talking about story structure.

Matt Stone And Trey Parker Crash An NYU Writing Class

Fun little video where Matt and Trey talk about the whiteboards in the South Park writers rooms, and how they break the stories into beats:

I saw Matt Stone at my friend John Pierson’s master class a few years ago.
