      • Quote: Master storytellers give us the double-edged encounter we crave. First, the discovery of a world we do not know…Second, once inside this alien world, we find ourselves. Deep within these characters and their conflicts, we discover our own humanity. We go to the movies to enter a new, fascinating world, to inhabit vicariously another human being who at first seems so unlike us and yet at heart is like us, to live in a fictional reality that illuminates our daily reality. We do not wish to escape life but to find life, to use our minds in fresh, experimental ways, to flex our emotions, to enjoy, to learn, to add depth to our days. Story was written to foster films of archetypal power and beauty that will give the world this dual pleasure.” – Robert McKee, Story: Substance, Structure, Style, and the Principles of Screenwriting”
