Our Storyforming Screencasts give you a sneak peek into the thinking process behind using Dramatica to analyze a story. By seeing how a magnificent film encoded and weaved the various
Story Points in the
Storyform, you should develop an understanding and intuition of using Dramatica to improve your own stories.
Beware! These video tutorials are chock-full of spoilers. Your best bet is to watch the film on your own first, and then watch the video and see if your guesses for Story Points match up with ours. And of course, as always, if you disagree with our analysis or interpretation of a Story Point feel free to let us know.
