Story Seminar Robert McKee's passion recognizes the cultural importance of story creation with stunning clarity. Stories are not just entertainment but rather the stuff which shapes the way we conduct our lives and develop our culture. Story is what makes a good movie, book, or play a great one with lasting significance. McKee's 'Story' shows how Structure is created of Character not plot, rules, and formulae. True emotional revelation for the audience is achieved by the interplay of Characters and Events impacting each other to resolution. This comprehensive, 3-Day writing workshop is a superbly organized presentation of all elements involved from beginning to advanced screenplay writing and creative writing. Info
