Script Your Stories Hollywood Style - Scriptwriting Basics For Storytelling
As a speaker, you know the importance of storytelling: it makes you interesting, fun, emphatic and memorable. Most speakers are actually including stories in their presentations… or they think they are. Because there is a big difference between a good story and just a sequence of events. Good stories require a setup, character arcs, conflict and change, climax, and resolution. This is true, no matter if it is a 5-minute anecdote, a 2-hour film or a 7-book saga. Stories in Hollywood movies capture our attention and imagination trough specific rules and techniques that can be applied to your own stories. You can even find great stories in simple everyday events and tell them in a way that resonates with the public.
In this presentation, you will learn the most important of these rules and techniques.
