Robert McKee on scenes that work

Leave a comment

“No scene that doesn’t turn.  This is our ideal. We work to [shape] every scene from beginning to end by turning a [central issue of human experience] in a character’s life from the positive to the negative or the negative to the positive…  If exposition is a scene’s sole justification, a disciplined writer will trash it and weave its information into the film elsewhere.”

–Robert McKee, Story
