I decided to look through all the films analyzed to see how the storyforming used ‘hinder’ and share my thoughts. Recently, I was listening to a storyforming discussion and learned why I might not have liked some things about the film. There were three throughlines that had it emphasized (particulars escape me now) and for my taste that might have been too much. It brought to me how hinder choices could be powerful, and I wanted to keep an eye on its existence in my future storyforming. It, also, brought to mind my first encounter with hinder.
Shortly after TCM began in the l990’s, I started using Dramatica even going to some workshops. I watched hundreds of earlier films. I knew protagonist and antagonist from writing and reading, but there was another major character that always existed. I could see it. Dramatica theory showed me it was contagonist with traits of hinder and temptation. The contagonist was as important to the film and story as the other two. I was impressed by the theory’s [accuracy/knowledge]. Now, I decided to see where the hinder existed in the previously analyzed films and discover if I liked the film. I will just add to this.
