Finally got the first video done! I suppose it’s technically the second one. I originally began work on a video breakdown for Inception, but ran into some copyright content issues that led me to set it aside for awhile. I should have that one posted this month. In the interim here’s the video analysis for The Empire Strikes Back. If you enjoy it don’t forget to “like” on YouTube!
Hey there, story peeps.
You may have noticed I haven’t posted anything in a nearly a month. A very astute observation on your part, but it’s all for good cause, I swear.
I’m happy to announce I have recently decided to add video breakdowns of Six Act Structure in films to my analytical repertoire. Yay.
Unfortunately, because I have little experience in video editing the process entails a bit of a learning curve that has taken longer than expected to climb. I had to find a good video software solution (I’m using HitFilm 4 Express), figure out how to use it (lots of tutorial watching), chop videos, write scripts, navigate YouTube copyright terms, etc. etc. etc. I won’t bore you with the details.
Suffice it to say that the first video should be posted by the end of February. Once the learning curve is surmounted, new posts should come more frequently. I still intend to post written breakdowns as well if that’s your bag.
Stay tuned. Good writing to all!
