Stories can cause us to feel a wide range of human emotions, but they can also be strangely manipulative. If storytelling is designed to lead an audience into an emotional experience, how do we tell the difference between real emotions and fake ones? And how do we make sure to write the real stuff?

Works referenced include:

  • The Walking Dead Season 6
  • Big Hero 6
  • Captain America Civil War
  • Carrie and Lowell

Every great movie has memorable moments. These are the scenes that end up on the poster and splashed all over the trailers. The ones you talk about for years to come.

Today we are talking about the other half. The parts of the story that don't get the limelight but actually draw the audience into the characters and their situation. The human elements that actually make movies work and transform them into something larger than the sum of their parts.

Movies discussed in this episode include:

  • Home Alone
  • Aliens
  • Jaws
  • Rear Window
  • Star Trek
  • Guardians of the Galaxy

 

Thanks for listening!

Wondering where Story Punch has been lately? I'm hoping to have more episodes for you very soon. Been a little overwhelmed lately!
