july-blog-allen2
To explore why story is important and why it matters; I encourage you to visit (or revisit) any of the following Oscar-winning films. Each of these won the Academy Award for screenplay (some original and some adapted). As you watch the film, answer this question: Based on what you’ve learned so far about “story” – Why is this film worthy of an Oscar win for story? If you feel differently, ask yourself why?
