Winter’s Bone Beat Sheet | Save the Cat!®

Winter’s Bone Beat Sheet | Save the Cat!® | UVI Film | Scoop.it
This is a classic reimagining of one of the oldest stories we have: the Quest, or in the parlance of Save the Cat!, the Golden Fleece, a name which pays homage to the Greek myth of Jason and the Argonauts. Golden Fleeces are road movies, outer journeys in search of a primal prize. Along the way, our heroine will be aided by allies, beset by enemies, and tested. The boon gained in the quest will be primal and essential — this is no mere trinket but a treasure of real significance that will complete the journey. The other element of the quest story is that the outward journey mirrors an inward journey of self-realization. See also Joseph Campbell’s monomyth explored in The Hero With a Thousand Faces for more examples.

Logline: When a teenaged girl’s meth-cooking father puts the family homestead up for his bond, she must go on a quest through the dangerous Missouri backwoods to find him or risk losing the only home she has.

WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING AT? (dissecting the work of a master)

WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING AT? (dissecting the work of a master) | UVI Film | Scoop.it
SCENE/SHOT ANALYSIS

Here's the dissecting part....so it took me a while, but I decided to go through the entire film and look for things that I may have missed during my first viewing. Instead of writing paragraph upon paragraph, detailing the craftsmanship that I noticed behind each scene, I decided to sort of make a book. I for one like pictures and the less I have to read, the more engaged I am. That's just me, but I'm sure you'd rather this format than listening to me waffle on for pages at a time.

Please keep in mind that I had nothing to do with this film! The notes I have made cannot be accurate in the sense that I actually don't KNOW what is going on, what lens was used, etc. They are more of an observation based on, dare I say, educated guesses. In any case, I found it to be a great learning experience as I looked for beauty and subtle details in these shots....I hope you get something out of it too :)

Here's the first quarter of what I plan on finishing over the next month or so. It's quite time consuming, believe me! Hope you enjoy and please comment or make notes where you think I've missed something, or disagree with something.

When the subject of early surrealist film arises, most of us think of Salvador Dalí and Buñuel’s Un Chien Andalou, and not without good cause: even 86 years after its release, its nightmare images of piano-dragging and eyeball-slicing still lurk in...
