The Secrets of Story Structure program was recorded during a live seminar presented by co-creators of the Dramatica theory of story, Melanie Anne Phillips and Chris Huntley.
The seminar delves into the dramatic underpinnings of narrative structure and how to apply it to strengthen the impact of your novel or screenplay.
The concepts covered were incorporated into Dramatica software with the world’s only patented interactive Story Engine that cross-references your dramatic choices for your story to find holes and inconsistencies and suggest how to fix them.
Archetypes are characters who represent a whole family of human qualities without any inconsistencies. They are a shorthand form of storytelling that opens up more media real estate for other story elements.
