The Ideas Man – A (very) short story

“Regarding storytelling, ideas are a dime a dozen. It’s the execution that matters!”

“Ah, so you’re a big fan of ‘Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace’, then?”

“Excuse me? While it wasn’t the worst film I’ve ever watched, it had some truly terrible scenes and characters in it.”

“But it had great cinematography, top-notch visual effects and and some of Hollywood’s best actors in it.”

“Yeah, but the dialog sucked.”

“The ‘Star Wars’ script had to be one of the best edited scripts in movie history. And the different personality of the characters was conveyed really well.”

“Yeah, but Jar-Jar Binks!! … And a trade route conflict?!”

“So you’re saying that right at the beginning of the scriptwriting process, bad ideas were chosen for the characters and plot and then flawlessly executed?”
