Story Power: How to understand and harness the power in your story ideas
Tue 28 February 2017, 19:00 – 22:00 GMT
Using clips and examples from classics such as Back to the Future, David Baboulene explains the key elements that give stories their power and which give you a toolkit for managing that power. Character growth, moral argument, knowledge gaps and subtext, the story world, conflict and key questions are all made plain, followed by an opportunity for Q&A with the story consultant who literally wrote the book.
David Baboulene is a published author of six books (including The Story Book, 2010), scriptwriter, professional story consultant and a Ph.D. scholar of story theory whose research is changing the way contemporary media industries create and evaluate stories.
