" The so-called Story Circle [aka The Embryo] is my attempt to remove all of the hard and repeated work from the task of breaking a story. We do an eight-step story process here. I call it an embryo. 1) You've got a character that you can identify with 2) that has some kind of need/wish/incompletion. 3) [It] causes them to go across a threshold where the story changes direction. 4) They go down a road of trials, searching for something. 5) They find it, whether they like it or not. 6) It kind of kicks their ass, 7) and they come back to the world they started in, 8) having changed. - You, Need, Go, Search for something, Find it, Take it, Return, Changed.

  1. Filmmaking (film production) is the process by which a motion picture is produced. Filmmaking involves a number of complex and discrete stages, starting with an initial story, idea, or commission. It then continues through screenwriting, casting, pre-production, shooting, sound recording, post-production, and screening the finished product before an audience that may result in a film release and an exhibition. Filmmaking occurs in a variety of economic, social, and political contexts around the world. It uses a variety of technologies and cinematic techniques. Although filmmaking originally involved the use of film, most film productions are now digital. Today, filmmaking refers to the process of crafting an audio-visual story commercially for distribution or broadcast.
