Robert McKee's screenwriting workshops have earned him an international reputation for inspiring novices, refining works in progress and putting major screenwriting careers back on track. Quincy Jones, Diane Keaton, Gloria Steinem, Julia Roberts, John Cleese and David Bowie are just a few of his celebrity alumni. Writers, producers, development executives and agents all flock to his lecture series, praising it as a mesmerizing and intense learning experience. In Story, McKee expands on the concepts he teaches in his $450 seminars (considered a must by industry insiders), providing readers with the most comprehensive, integrated explanation of the craft of writing for the screen. No one better understands how all the elements of a screenplay fit together, and no one is better qualified to explain the "magic" of story construction and the relationship between structure and character than Robert McKee.
This book approaches the construction of complex and transgressive ‘pervert’ characters in mainstream (not ‘art’), adult-oriented (not pornographic) cinema. It deconstructs an episteme on which to base the construction of characters in screenplays, in a way that acknowledges how semiotic elements of characterisation intersect. In addition, it provides an extended re-phrasing of the notion of ‘the pervert’ as Feiticiero/a: a newly-coined construct that might serve as an underpinning for complex, sexual filmic characters that are both entertaining and challenging to audiences. This re-phrasing speaks to both an existential/phenomenological conception of personhood and to the scholarly tradition of the ‘linguistic turn’ of continental philosophers such as Foucault and Lacan, who represent language not primarily as describing the world but as constructing it. The result is an original and interdisciplinary volume that is brought to coherence through a queer, post-humanist lens.
Formulation remains one of the most important activities that those using psychological approaches undertake as part of their work. By drawing on a wide range of sources from psychology and the arts the authors find ways to honour the stories clients tell yet offer key psychological insights to facilitate change. They provide a clear guide to enable the reader to think about the purpose of their work with clients, the perspectives which inform it and the process used to ensure effective outcomes. Guest contributions are included from various fields of practice including: clinical, coaching, educational, forensic, occupational and from the arts The book will enable all practitioners (whatever the stage of their career) who need to work with client stories to find new ways to enhance their practice. `In a climate of demand for sound-bite explanations and quick-fix solutions, the authors refuse over-simplification and explore the challenging complexity of psychological formulation. They do so from a narrative perspective that recognizes that the formulations psychologists make in relation to the stories brought by their clients, while grounded in systematic theory and research, are, nevertheless, themselves stories. They have, therefore, elicited contributions from others, expert in the interpretation of stories and their characters, such as actors and dramatists, who bring differing perspectives to our understanding. I can personally attest to the value of these perspectives, as my own training in dramatherapy has greatly enriched my work with clients. It has deepened my appreciation of what feeling my way into another's world, so central in effective therapy, involves, and of the centrality of stories in our experience. I have found the chapters of this book stimulating and thought provoking.' Sheelagh Strawbridge, co-author of Exploring Self and Society and co-editor of the Handbook of Counselling Psychology
