              Arrival & The Zero-Sum Game

              Episode #32

              The Storyform, Main Character Throughline, Overall Story Throughline, and Story Goal

              In this episode we make the connection between Arrival and the holistic approach to story structure offered by the Dramatica theory of story. Why speculate about how your story will end when you can make meaningful progress by developing a narrative that supports your artistic intent?

              In addition we take a look into creating dramatic tension and hooking your audience into your story by looking both subjectively from within you story and objectively from outside of your story. Sound cool? Then dive in and open up your mind to a brand new way of thinking about story and story structure.
