I’m advising a student on a short film she’s writing. Sent her this email. Thought I’d share. Seems to cover most any story, ever.
What is her problem?
What is her desire / what does she want MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE?
What is her need, that she’s not aware of?
What is she afraid of… desperately afraid of… a fear that keeps her from taking action…
How does she conquer that fear and get what she needs?
