Ep 19 — Exposing the Secrets of Great Storytelling with Kristofer Hivju | The Cave of Apelles

Ep 19 — Exposing the Secrets of Great Storytelling with Kristofer Hivju

What does it take to convince the audience — heartfelt inspiration or calculated deception? Imagine all the best stories being one and the same (or ten and the same), mechanically crafted by the same principles. Would you still enjoy them… forever and ever… and ever?

Kristofer Hivju shares his views on Blake Snyder’s book on screenwriting, “Save the Cat!”, the Stanislavskij-method, Aristotle’s Poetics and more.

The centerpiece for this conversation was “Save the Cat” by Odd Nerdrum.
The episode was produced by Bork S. Nerdrum, assisted by Sebastian Salvo and Javier Adams.
