Discovering The Underlying Structure of The Tree of Life

Often, we get so hung up on linear, narrative structure that we forget that there are completely different forms of screenplay structure that can be equally moving and powerful.

Using The Tree of Life as a model, Award Winning Screenwriter Jacob Krueger will show you how to let go of rigid formulas, and discover the underlying structure that already exists in your story.

The Hegelian Dialectical Structure

For all its melodic ramblings, its jumping back and forth in time, its shifting perspectives, its God’s eye view of the universe, its whispering voiceovers, its dinosaur sequences and its meditative imagery washing over us like ocean waves, The Tree of Life is built on a rock solid structure, which provides the drum beat for the entire film.
It’s called the Hegelian Dialectic. And it’s powered some of the most successful movies in screenwriting history, from art films like The Tree of Life to Hollywood blockbusters like The Empire Strikes Back, Network, and There Will Be Blood.

How Can The Hegelian Dialectic Change Your Writing?

In Hegelian Dialectical structure, ideas take human form in the movie’s characters, and the belief systems they represent.

As those belief systems come into conflict, our characters are forced to change, driving to a synthesis that transcends their original belief systems, and leads them closer to the truth in relation to the question of the film: the question the with which the writer is wrestling in him or herself.

Forever Change The Way You View Structure

In this groundbreaking one-day seminar, you’ll learn how you can use the Hegelian Dialectic to power your own writing, test the beliefs of your characters, and wrestle deeply with the profound questions that led you to write in the first place.
