Cinema Therapy

Recently, I have really been enjoying Cinema Therapy videos on YouTube. They are definitely for adults (some swearing and adult references), but they are pretty clean. They analyze movie characters from the perspective of a therapist. However, the two hosts are a therapist and a film maker, so they have some neat insights into film making, too. For example, in their video on Stardust, they mention how the montage is a storytelling device unique to film. You don’t know how many times I’ve paused in the middle of writing and wished I could just do a montage! 😆

I’ve appreciated the character insights. Now I want my (as yet, unpublished) book to be turned into a movie so they can analyze my characters because I’m really curious what they would say. 🙂

Happy Writing!

About Me

I have always loved writing stories, but I was surprised as an adult to learn I love teaching as well. I hold a B.A. in Digital Writing and an M.F.A in Writing for Children and Young Adults. Fantasy has always been my first love in literature. Superheroes and science fiction also hold a special place in my heart. My favorite audience is middle grade readers, but I enjoy young adult fiction as well.
