Repression on screen and in story

#screenwriting #filmmaking #writing #screenplay

Repression is fundamental to story.

Stories are about the need to change from one self to another self. Repression and all it's siblings (reluctance, resistance) etc attempt to prevent that change.

Resistance has many forms, including:

Threshold Guardians which prevent movement between worlds.

Interdictors which prevent exit from worlds.

The 2000+ stage Hero's Journey and Transformation through a New World/State is the template upon which the vast majority of successful stories and Hollywood blockbusters are based upon. Learn about this at
