In the new year, I plan to re-read The Way of the Screenwriter. Specifically, I’m trying to figure out what my priorities are for my next animated project and using it’s advice. Amnon Buchbinder’s book “The Way of the Screenwriter” is an excellent resource to discover ways to make your characters and stories strong.
Story [he says] is a living thing.
I’d say that’s true about anything visual I create.
I’m using his ideas about motive, plot lines and character to make my images stronger too. His style of writing is visual, making his examples incredibly easy to understand. This poetic book reminds me of a book Rilke might like. I can’t wait to see it’s impact on my work.
