Response post (story, character, baggage) due September 3, 11:59 pm: After reading chapter one on story, character, literary heroes, character conflict, and baggage – address the following thoughts and questions in the comments section below:
- What are some things that you feel will better prepare you as you begin to look at films in a more focused way?
- Was there anything new you learned from the information provided (on story, hero and character), or did it serve as a refresher/reminder? Share those thoughts.
- As you examine your baggage – what positive baggage draws you into a film more: story or character? Explain why you feel that is.
- And as for negative baggage, what stands in your way when deciding what films not to check out? Give examples.
