CONCEPT


Rick Schmidt

Is the story concept/idea . .
  • original?
  • interesting to an audience?
  • rich and complex such that it becomes more, not less, when seen again?
  • timeless?
  • likely to receive good critical response?

Is it the kind of story . . .
  • you would go see?
  • for which you'd like to be known?

Does the story concept/idea . . .
  • add meaning or understanding, in a personal or universal way?
  • have the possibility of human drama that will touch the audience's heart?

Will the . . .
  • idea continue to grow into a full-length story?
  • story concept quickly become outdated?
