Empathetic Point of View

Kevin T. Morales dives into the architecture of 1991 Best Picture winner, The Silence of the Lambs, to explore its creative and thematically resonating use of empathetic point-of-view.

A symptom of bad movies and mediocre scripts is a lack of strong point-of-view or careless use of it. After Kevin’s lecture, Filmmakers and writers of every kind will have greater insight into one of the most crucial parts of storytelling, regardless of genre or medium.
