Here's the video for our analysis of Midnight Cowboy. Brand new camera so hopefully things will be a little clearer (and a little wider!). I can rotate the camera now too when Chris goes to talk about the Table of Story Elements so that should help people better visualize what is going on.

Of course, Google still has not fixed the Screenshare bug, so the last 15 minutes or so are in complete darkness. Audio is there.

Congratulations, better tools are always good. I keep getting feedback from various people that ask if I have been going to the monthly User Group meetings and I keep trying, but never have. How do I get into the meeting? If they keep telling me to go to the meetings and I can't, that sets up disappointment and ultimately resentment, because I am not able to follow through with the advice I keep getting. Please help. :)

Google+, not content with owning our thermostats and smoke alarms, once again changed things around with Google+ Hangouts. Our apologies if you weren't invited properly.

This one was a quickie -- the storyform was beyond obvious and proved to be quite strong (many examples).
 
Watch as Dramatica co-creator Chris Huntley leads an analysis of 2008's Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day.

Creation takes center stage tonight as we'll put aside our analysis hats and work collaboratively to create a unique and intriguing story. This event will be broadcast live.

Last night's analysis of A Place in the Sun. While there was some discussion as to whether or not it fulfilled the Dramatica definition of a Grand Argument Story, a reasonably close storyform was found for this 1951 classic.

I awaited an invite and never got one. Sorry I missed being part of it. Maybe next time?

Sorry about the lack of screen-sharing at the end of this one. Google once again changed things around and for some reason it wasn't working last night.

Story
Tagline
The Next Chapter in Story Development
Introduction
Dramatica is a theory of story based on the concept that every complete story is really an analogy to a single human mind trying to solve a problem. Character, plot, theme and genre all came to be as natural representations of those deep psychological processes. While the theoretical concepts can be explored with traditional pen and paper, a computer program becomes necessary to maintain the thousands of relationships that go on within the "story" mind.

Dramatica Story Expert is the first of these applications.
