Plant and Pay-Off: You Can Be A God!
Why did you come to Story Expo? What do you seek? You've planted seeds with all these efforts, working, learning searching...
Here's the pay-off!
Your movies and screenplays CAN be raised to a religious experience -- IF you know how to plant and pay off story elements, props and character traits WELL -- and ENOUGH that it builds up to an emotional JACKPOT at the end.
Finally! Come to this lecture and see how the tiniest pay-off can have the most meaning, how a universe and a life can fit on the head of a pin. The smallest thing, done early in your story, can have the MOST EXPLOSIVE, MOST AMAZING, MOST GRATIFYING, EARTH-SHATTERING EFFECT AT THE END --
-- and YOU can live a life, filled with meaning!
