Story: Substance, Structure, Style, and the Principles of Screenwriting (Hörbuch-Download): Robert McKee, Robert McKee, HarperAudio: Audible Audiobooks Robert McKee s screenwriting workshops have earned him an international reputation for inspiring novices, refining works in progress, and putting major screenwriting careers back on track Quincy Jones, Diane Keaton, Gloria Steinem, Julia Roberts, John Cleese, and David Bowie are just a few of his celebrity alumni Writers, producers, development executives, and agents all flock to his lecture series, praising it as a mesmerizing and intense learning experience In Story, McKee expands on the concepts he teaches in hisseminars considered a must by industry insiders , providing listeners with the most comprehensive, integrated explanation of the craft of writing for the screen No one better understands how all the elements of a screenplay fit together, and no one is better qualified to explain the magic of story construction and the relationship between structure and character than Robert McKee This book is by no means perfect but its still one of the best maybe THE best about the topic of story.WHY IT ISN T PERFECT 1 The book starts with pages and pages of facts and theory that are quite obvious You read page after page and say Yes, he s right, that s true , and it is, but its meaningless Even if this is the first time in your life you think about story But if you continue reading, the pages start bearing significance Would have been better with just 200 pages instead of 400.2 Although the book has the word structure in its title, the books own structure is horrible, if not completely absent If you really want to work with the book, its probably a good idea to write down the essence of the book in short notes and give them your own structure afterwards.3 McKee is very dogmatic Obviously he has an incredible philosophical knowledge about the topic Enough to make him a story guru in my opinion But dogmatic statements are never a good idea And with some statements I think, he s wrong But honestly that doesn t really matter, because WHY IT S STILL THE BEST BOOK ABOUT STORY 1 Even if McKee might be wrong with some of his claims in my opinion , the great achievement is, that without McKee pointing out some aspects, I had never given them a single thought So no matter if you share all of his opinions or not while reading his book, you start to think about story in a new and different way That s brilliant And even if you contradict you almost certainly learned something new and valuable But the point is don t just shovel the pages into your brain like a bowl of Kellogg s Frosties Think, criticize and question everything Make your own mind This book teaches you how to walk and stand on your own two feet But like any good father who teaches you to follow into his footsteps, in order to become a real successor, first the father has to die.2 McKee covers every aspect of story there is If you re structure the book a bit, it will you provide you with an in depth how to instruction And its a great tool to analyze your or other stories.3 The book is mainly about blockbusters Big Hollywood movies Its not about how stories work but about how Hollywood movies work At first this might look like a flaw Especially if you re bored of the Hollywood story telling style But actually its not a flaw but a very good thing You learn how and why these blockbusters work and you learn why and when they bore you I you want to write an intelligent, individual avantgarde story there is no how to instruction anyway or it would be pointless You have to do this by yourself But you have to know and understand the conventions of your craft first Its like painting You have to learn to paint photo realistic before you can successfully do abstract art have a look at Picasso and van Gogh and their early work Which means If you do not want to write a Hollywood blockbuster read this book and learn what you have to avoid or to include. This audio book has helped me a lot It s a great way to remind you of important story rules before sleeping when all great ideas come to you anyway I own the book as well, and I noticed that in the audio book Robert McKee doesn t read the book word to word In the audio book he is getting to the point of things faster I wish sold his flash stick same audio content although in the form of a flash stick CDs are becoming an uncomfortable way to do things nowadays believe it or not I am happy overall though Wer sich f r Storytelling in Filmen interessiert und mehr dar ber wissen m chte, wie Drehb cher funktionieren, der wird um Robert McKee nur schwerlich herumkommen.Mit seinem Buch Story bricht McKee das Storytelling auf seine einzelteile herunter und beschreibt gut verst ndlich wie aus deren Zusammenspiel starke Drehb cher werden die das Publikum begeistern Sehr zu empfehlen
