What Is Dramatic Need?
#script #writing #moviemaking #filmmaking
This is a phrase used quite a lot by Syd Field.
It's an overly lofty phrase which can easily be replaced with the word "drive."
For example, in Thelma & Louise (1991) when both decide to escape to Mexico and freedom....well Syd Field describes this as Dramatic Need. Very simply, it's their drive.
Still, we have to be careful to consider it on all layers.
For example, superficially, Thelma & Louise's drive may be to go to Mexico, but underneath, their drive is transformation and freedom from the limitations of their older selves.
