Why do we love stories? Why do spoilers intrigue us? Meg Gardiner gets into our brains and reveals the mysteries of telling a great story.
Stories, and especially mysteries, take us to places we’d never want to go in real life. Murder? Crime? Monsters? All lousy things to experience for real, but they make for great movies and books. In this wonderfully insightful talk, Meg Gardiner helps us become better storytellers through heroes, intrigue, conflict, and suspense … the building blocks of story structure. (But fair warning: Don’t be surprised if from now on, you start to analyze every movie you watch looking for the structure!)
