    • Robert McK­ee: Sto­ry: Sub­stance, Struc­ture, Style and the Prin­ci­ples of Screenwriting

      • 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”
