From Film
We start and finish with film: film and drama, film and art, film and music...

First, there are films and there are movies. Film is advancing the language of this media, movies are using this language. One is poetry, another -- storytelling. Yes, any movie is a story told in visual signs on the screen. This is why we do start with the six drama principles from the ancient "Poetics" by Aristotle. Three of them are under STRUCTURE, three -- TEXTURE.

First in Structure -- the Story, or Plot (or ACTION).

What is the difference between the story and the plot?

See Plot Page.
