Robert McKee's screenwriting workshops have earned him an international reputation for inspiring novices, refining works in progress and putting major screenwriting careers back on track. Quincy Jones, Diane Keaton, Gloria Steinem, Julia Roberts, John Cleese and David Bowie are just a few of his celebrity alumni. Writers, producers, development executives and agents all flock to his lecture series, praising it as a mesmerizing and intense learning experience.
In Story, McKee expands on the concepts he teaches in his $450 seminars (considered a must by industry insiders), providing readers with the most comprehensive, integrated explanation of the craft of writing for the screen. No one better understands how all the elements of a screenplay fit together, and no one is better qualified to explain the "magic" of story construction and the relationship between structure and character than Robert McKee.
Amazing book for learning about writhing compelling stories.
I've tried to write some stories, for fun, in the past and each was pretty boring.
After reading this I realize every paradigm I had about story was not useful enough to create compelling content.
I feel, after reading this, that there is a new set of tools I have to work with that will improve my story telling greatly.
Basically you either love or hate this but you can't deny it's a classic on the art of story
