Analysis

Karel Segers of the Story Department will be helming the meeting and taking us through breaking down and analysing film. A critical part of writing is being able to understand how to analyse and critique your own work, but do you know how to find the errors in your own story? or know what's missing? If you are not sure on how all this is done or you are new to the group, don't panic. Come along and take some notes with us along the way. Don't forget to bring: Pen Paper Scripts/drafts See you Saturday. Excelsior!

    Regaining their natural birth designed power of quality and ability. Meddling males being of a lower frequency, tend to absorb the higher feminine levels to equalise and this puts the feminine inner self out of phase. I could write an entire million pages of what I found in the research, though the book is still in the draught stage. Take control of your feminine right to be you, take tomorrow in both hands and become who your were born to be. Those males unable to keep or support you, leave them on the scrap heap and seek the like energies here who are feminine supportive and know the reason women are here in the way they are. By bith's design you are a life creator, sustainer and healer. When supported you give off an enzyme which helps retain the health of meddling males. Sadly most males exist in relationships more than live in relationship and thus, stave themselves of the healing stabilizing enzymes and usually become aggresive towards the higher life form/

      Dave, your supportive comments are much appreciated, however this view once again advocates the “them and us” mentality which creates separation and antagonism. Let's face it, heroes are the real victims here because they have to go through untold suffering and face death to validate themselves. That's a big ask. If anything, I feel sorry for men and in lots of ways I admire and love them for what they are. The truth of the matter is that, regardless of whether we temporarily occupy a male or female body, our nature is androgynous. And the quest of Prince Charming is to awaken the Sleeping Beauty within. And women are finally waking up to the Hero within. And we are staring at a new dawn of consciousness.

      At the moment there are two distinct groups of people living on Earth. Those who are existing and those who are living.

    Ella's comments gave me goose bumps. “The 'Last of the Mohicans' deserves to be seen again and better understood by me”. When Phil asked me after the session what I thought of the film, I echoed Ella's response “I don't understand war”. Though I made it to the top of the class for every other subject, I flunked history because of my total inability to grasp the mentality behind war. Heroes need villains and damsels in distress for the survival of their image. In contrast, 'Brave' is a film directed by a woman for the modern woman who has dispensed with any need to be rescued by a hero and is searching for the means within to overcome her demons. The 3 'prospective heroes' that are to be appointed 'her protector', recede into the horizon, above the sea (emotions). Thus both men and women as set free.

      The director was sacked halfway through production. Replaced by men. She still received credit but only as she was the writer as well. Others are denied gracefully of credit as they say.

      That's interesting, Lee. Why was she sacked? I think you'll need to allocate more than 3 hours for your next session if we open this can of worms. I am looking forward to it, but I promise to shut up on cue.

    Nano, everything you're saying resonates with me as I've been pondering the questions of what reinforces the gender stereotypes for about a month now and have heard many differing views on the matter. I've got something to say about it too and it's quite similar to the views of Sheryl Sandberg, the FB COO. I will bring it to the table at the next screenwriters meeting.

    Nano. There are two species of human life forms. Female and Male as you know. What is seeping through times ageing, is the fact that women are by design, the better form of human life. Genetically over the m,any years now residing in the History Resort, a scripting of the feminine psychi, has resulted in a degrading of the feminine strength from blossoming into a far more powerful design feature. With the massive induction of Indigo people from the 1980's onwards. They have induced a higher energy level into non indigo people who by insight, different and therefore, able to resinate at a higher body frequency which allows self-esteem and dignity, to increase resulting in many women of to-day. Regaining their natural birth designed power of quality and ability. Meddling males being of a lower frequency, tend to absorb the higher feminine levels to equalise and this puts the feminine inner self out of phase with the lower frequency male form.

    The women in the audience totally understood and identified with the character. Women are evolving and searching within to overcome the antagonist, and are dispensing with someone to blame. To cut a long debate short, this causes problems for today's woman writer whose psychology does not fit within a 'pre-scribed' plot(character). Is she, even in this field, expected to conform, or can she rise to change the field?

    Perhaps this is not the place for such elaborate debate, but these sessions are superior to any formal psychology lecture you can attend for the dissection of the psyche.

    I really wish I'd been there. Nano's comment got me interested in 'Brave', and 'Last of the Mohicans' definitely deserved to be seen again and better understood by me. I can't wait for the next Analysis meeting.

    Thank you Nano and Bellinda.
    You're very gracious with your feedback. I agree and I would actually love to see it again immediately, under better circumstances. I am deeply sorry the projection was as bad as it was.
    Interestingly, Nano, you have given the exact reason why I like to keep the movie titles under wraps... :)

    Had I known the first film would be animation, I wouldn't have turned up. Am I glad I did! That was my story. Amazingly, a few women at the lunch break said they totally identified with the character and it was indeed their own story. It goes to show how the same story can express itself in so many ways, and how we can in turn give it expression on the screen.
    There is so much to learn. Thank you Karel for a brilliant session.

    Thanks Karel. Was surprised how much I both enjoyed and was touched by the spirited 'Brave'. See you again next time.

    Hi Karel
    What is film 1 and film 2?

    March 11, 2013

    • Phil P.

      I'll be there for Mohicans. A few Pixar movies I can watch more than once but Brave is not one of them.

  • Karel

    Thank you Nano... This system is doing my head in. For some reason it automatically made it Sunday for the end date, while I never entered that. I also never entered the original 10PM. It is: Film 1: Sat 16/3 10am-1pm
    Film 2: Sat 16/3 1pm - 4pm
