In part 4 of the continuing interview series with story-master, Robert McKee, we come full-circle on McKee’s views on the relationship between talent and practice, something that generated a robust conversation in the comments on the last session.
Actually, that comment-conversation is worthy of an entire discourse, so stay tuned for a bigger exploration in an upcoming post.
We then expand the conversation into a range of new areas, including why he decided to take his educational story venture online and where the best storytelling is in America today (you’ll be very surprised to hear this).
You’ll also discover:
- How he is making a big move online with his new advanced educational training venture, Storylogue
- How the online format allows him to bring to his students an endless stream of high-level interviews and Q&As, from celebrity actors to best-selling authors and award-winning directors, writers and agents, in a way that’s near impossible to do in any other format.
- Where he feels the best writing in America is now (it ain’t movies) and why
- Why the medium doesn’t really matter, but this one “form” does
- Why 99% of your world is irrelevant to great storytelling
- And, so much more…
