No part of screenwriting theory is at the same time more critical and misunderstood than the story's Mid Point Reversal (MPR). Many gurus leave it untouched, and those who cover it, only touch the surface. Blake Snyder and Chris Vogler got it plain wrong.
This one-day seminar and workshop will teach you the differences between a Point of No Return, and the Mid Point Reversal.
Karel Segers will debunk a few screenwriting myths, and give you a clear and comprehensive look at the story pivot. Once you have found your MPR, you have cracked your story.
In a fascinating one-day whirlwind, Karel will introduce you to the following:
- false victories, false defeats, and false writing advice
- how the MPR changes character archetypes
- the impact of the MPR on your character's goals and actions
- the geography of the MPR
- why motion is critical after your MPR
- how the MPR relates to theme
- The MPR and The 2-Act Structure
- The MPR in TV Series drama
The MPR will be studied in films such as AVATAR, ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST, THE UNTOUCHABLES, THE QUEEN, ARRIVAL, and TV shows such as THE WIRE, BREAKING BAD and FUTURAMA.
If you are a screenwriter, director, producer or editor, this one-day training will help you understand the central point of every story arc. It will give you the tools to improve flawed stories, and identify potential issues from early development.
