The following short two-minute videos are designed to illustrate the way the Dramatica theory of story sees character arc. Combining the
Main Character Resolve with the
Main Character Growth, we begin to form an understanding of how the
Main Character Problem and
Main Character Solution fit into the narrative.
Growth does not happen in a vacuum and so it is the same with the Main Character of a story. These videos also feature the
Influence Character responsible for driving the Main Character through their personal development.
Just so you know--these video tutorials do contain spoilers. You might want to watch the film first and make your own guesses as to the various Story Points, and then check your work here.

Luke grows from someone who constantly needs to test his skills to someone who trusts in something outside of himself.
Neo grows from someone who doesn’t believe in himself to someone who believes he is the One.
#3: William Wallace
William stands fast to his ideals, forever challenging others to consider a different way.
