Bobette Buster's What's the Story? The Uses of Wonder: Ask the Right Questions of Your Story All Ages
Do we have enough imagination to live our best lives and be our own best storytellers?
This session explores the uses of wonder and enchantment in storytelling and, in the spirit of Socrates, shares how to ask the right questions of your story, including: What’s the Big Idea? (the central controlling premise); Why Do We Care/Who Wakes Up? (as this era’s art form of transformation, cinema needs to create characters that change and experience their bold choices with emotional clarity); What Do You Feel? (the orchestration of emotions by visual and sound design); What’s the Cinema Language? (deliberate sight and sound design to orchestrate emotional responses to the story and a character’s inner struggle as they find courage to transform towards their true destiny); as well as examining How to Raise the Stakes in a Scene, Mining the Zeitgeist, and All Roads Leading to the Last Emotion.
