The B&E Podcast #006
“The Struggle & Dilemma in Star Wars”
SUMMARY OF THE PODCAST:
We get into one of the biggest modern day movie releases of our time. We break down some of the elements that really work in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”.
POINT #1: “DEMANDS OF GENRE AND EXPECTATIONS”
-Managing our expectations of a movie can greatly affect our experience of it. An action movie is not necessarily meant to be an Oscar contender. What is the experience you want to give the audience?
POINT #2: “IT’S NOT ALWAYS ABOUT REALISM”
-There’s value to be found in these larger than life moments. It doesn’t make them any less worthy, especially when you consider the genre that you’re writing and who it’s for.
POINT #3: “REVEALING CHARACTER THROUGH THEIR ACTIONS”
-Explaining our characters is so much more interesting through what we see them do and how they behave as opposed to explaining everything to the audience.
