Video: Did “Save the Cat” REALLY Ruin Hollywood?

More than one person took issue with my previous video on Save the Cat and story structure. I wanted to revisit the subject in a little more detail and respond to some of the criticism, while making some other points about Hollywood, creativity, and art vs. commerce.

  1. I liked your analogy about the cake. I’ve read Save the Cat but I don’t use a strict formula in my writing although I could see where it might be useful for new writers just starting out. As you said, you need the fundamentals before you do variations. Great video!
