I just finished watching the analysis. Great stuff! A couple things I wanted to mention...
First, there was a question about the first OS Signpost being
Memory and how that was illustrated. I think there are two great examples:
- Mrs. Otterton has been complaining that her husband has been missing for days but everyone keeps brushing her off. Basically, Emmitt Otterton is being forgotten.
She also has a photo (a memory) of Emmit which she gives to Hopps.
- Next scene, Hopps finds the "last known sighting" photo (memory) of Emmit Otterton, with the popsicle connection to Nick.
I'm pretty sure those are still in OS Act 1 since the OS kind of begins a little late, as Chris (@chuntley) said.
The other thing that stood out in this video was Chris's openness to accepting different ideas and perspectives. The amount of discussion around the possibility of Hopps being Steadfast was impressive, since it seemed apparent that Chris didn't agree, but he was very willing to be convinced if the argument was compelling.
I really think such openness is crucial to understanding and effectively using Dramatica ... since the whole thing is based on differing perspectives!
