Yeah, it's totally crazy because I just assumed Linear for all those reasons, but when you look at the storyform, you start to see how things really work. Such an awesome example.
What's exciting to me, is I've tried to storyform this for years, and I could never figure it out.
We sat down to watch it last night, and as soon as they brought up the energy crisis, I had the whole storyform in like two seconds.
The difference between this year and last?
- Genre and Sub-genres
- Holistic Premise
- Relationship Story as a Perspective
And this new idea of "boxing in" a storyform. Starting at the top to get a general feel, then looking at the bottom, to corral all the elements into place.
It's a much more holistic approach to storyforming. Instead of breaking it down linearly, and trying to work from a to b to c to d, you look at a, you look at d, and then you can infer all of b and c.
