Q & A with Story Expert Robert McKee (ISA Sponsored)

Posted: Sep 13, 2014 Hosted By: Lou Coty Guest: Robert McKee

"Story" is such a vague word for an incredibly complex idea. What makes a compelling story? How do the intricacies of a story entertain? Have you ever wanted to ask these questions, but felt intimated? This live Q & A/interview gave our members the chance to not only learn from the best, but to ask the best.

Mr. McKee joined your fellow ISA members in a unique presentation with the master of Story. Robert McKee made himself available to answer all Story-related questions. It was interactive, open-minded, and an incredible learning experience. It was a rare opportunity to pick the brain of the truest of experts and spend time focusing on the most important aspect of the entertainment industry - Story.
