Screenwriting and Genre

leave a comment »

I’m reading Story by Robert McKee, a screenwriting book. It’s fascinating in contrast to its prose counterparts. For example, 25 genres.

“Genres are not static or rigid, but evolving and flexible, yet firm and stable enough to be identified and worked with, much as a composer plays with the malleable movements of musical genres.”
