This is fuel to inspiration
I'm pretty sure it's beats build into scenes, scenes into sequences, sequences into acts and finally acts into movies.
I majored in graphic design and hated it for a while, also thinking "Am I ever going to use this?" Turns out that this was the perfect start for me as a filmmaker/visual storyteller. Life is weird.
Right?? Makes it hard to consider his opinion.
Thanks for the links!
$497?? No thanks. Just get Robert Mckee's book STORY or other books on storytelling, have a genuine interest in telling GOOD stories, study films/commercials on your own, then start writing and developing your craft. Seriously that price is a joke.
