Instantly Reveals Plot Dynamics

Forged in the fires of experience and the creative mind of one of Hollywood’s top screenwriters, the Hart Chart is a boon to storytellers, a method that instantly reveals plot dynamics and character relationships, while pinpointing weaknesses in structure. We need maps, we need language and techniques for breaking down our stories, we need graphic representations to visualize the emotional ups and downs of our characters. The Hart Chart delivers all that, plus an encompassing view of how and why a story moves an audience, a series of emotional signposts that complement and amplify the Hero’s Journey model.
