How do stories work?

Dr. David Baboulene – “A Story Ninja” (Nick Wild – writer/director, ‘Talking with Angels’)

Writer, actor, director, producer, publisher – whatever you do, you cannot get far without a story, and the quality of your story reflects on you. Understanding how stories work is the secret to setting yourself above the competition.

My aim in life is to bring you the most excellent, contemporary, advanced understanding of how stories work there is available anywhere in the world.

Why do stories exist? What even IS a story?! What gives one story power and leaves another flat? What can you do to understand and harness the power in your story ideas? Here, you will know everything there is to know about story, and the good news is, it’s fascinating too.

I am a writer, film-maker, story consultant and Ph.D. academic of narrative theory whose ground-breaking research into how stories resonate with the human mind is changing the way story industries understand, develop and evaluate stories for investment.

Where to begin? There’s a lot going on, so signup for a free introduction to understanding stories, followed by a monthly email from me on the new posts, films, videos, books, film analysis, seminars  and other resources, and let’s turn you into a master of the craft of story!
