Episode Notes

What can you learn about writing method from exploitation films? Turns out, a lot. An unorthodox approach to writing theory. And Then vs Thereforre/But. The midpoint shift. Better knowledge of Star Wars through Starcrash. Spectacle films. Why ignoring all common thought regarding plot and character development was a great idea for Starcrash. The hero’s journey. Another stab at sword and sorcery. One thing leads to another. Orca: The Brutal Whale. Different take, same ends. Grotesque, mishandled imagery leads to profound feeling. Exploitation’s unintended consequences. All films are cash-ins (and that’s ok).
