The Byronic Hero Narrative




Not familiar with the term Byronic Hero? Into The Script has you covered!

A Byronic hero is a charismatic character with a strong sense of passion and ideals, while being deeply flawed. Their arc focuses mainly on dealing with their internal struggles of wanting to be better but finding the reality almost impossible. This causes them to be self-aware of their flaws, issues and shadow self.

They have a set of rules that will not be broken for anything or anyone.  Their true 'dark' self will not be accepted by society, so while they may be attractive, charismatic etc they are still very much alone/shunned within society.  Sounds very familiar when it comes to talking about Ryan Gosling's character - The Driver in DRIVE.

So, now we've got that covered, let's remember this trope while getting to grips with Laila's most recent analysis and in-depth dive into the world of DRIVE!

The Power Of Short Stories Part 1: The Long & Short Of It



Having just polished some short stories for a charity anthology called Terror Bites – released 5th November 2019 – the writers involved got to talking about how short stories translate to the big screen and how many of our favourite films are based on or have been inspired by short stories.

But how well do short stories translate and how much of the story lends itself to the images we end up seeing on screen? Is there enough material in a short story that is just a few pages long to sustain a feature length film?
