What Rian Johnson’s ‘Knives Out’ Outline Can Teach You About Storytelling
At one point or another, every great film starts as the germ of an idea. That germ spreads, and suddenly you have the writing disease. Sorry, this metaphor went sideways, but we’ve all been in that place where we get an idea that makes us excited, but how do we know if that idea is actually worth anything?
For me…I make an outline to see if the story tracks.
Don’t trust me? Well, Rian Johnson does it too, so trust him! He’s amazing!
