Fabulous resource for brain storming and starting new stories. We've had some great discussion around each clip. Those who can't play the clip, I suggest you either try Google Chrome and/or download the clip.

I use this every year and do a lesson on brainstorming and creative writing based on each clip. I find it annoying that it has been rated 1 by some people who can't get it working. If there is a problem with your browser, there is always the three download links underneath!
