As a Story Grid certified editor I help you with specific story problems, your outline as well as a global analysis of your script.
The Story Grid methodology was developed by Shawn Coyne, an editor with over 25 years experience. The Story Grid tools help to analyze stories and provide helpful editorial comments. It’s like a CT Scan that takes a photo of the global story and tells the editor or writer what is working, what is not, and what must be done to make what works better and fix what’s not.
The Story Grid is not about grammar or style. It focuses on what makes a story work and what does not. It zooms out and looks at the global story, or zooms in to the micro level of beats or scenes. For every perspective there are tools that help the wirter / editor to figure out what the story is missing, how to make it stronger and what to leave out or change. It's like a toolbox. It helps to understand and learn the craft of storytelling. And it doesn't matter, if the story is told via a song, a novel, an advertisement campaign or through a comic book. The Story Grid is universally applicable.
Yes, I am.
I was trained by Shawn Coyne who continously develops the Story Grid methodology. I'm following the podcast, the editor's roundtable podcast, the Story Grid University courses and I'm working on my own case studies to show how the Story Grid can be applied for telling stories that work through the art of captivating pictures, captions, and dialogue.
