Storyboard for Filming
If you are making a film, you need to storyboard what your story or documentary will look like. Make notes, draw the scenes, plan.
If you are writing a short story, you can use this planner to consider how the story should go.
You must use 20 slides in a PowerPoint presentation that auto-advances every 15 seconds for a total of just five minutes. Go to the site http://igniteshow.com/ and view some of the presentations to get a sense of what is being asked of you. Be careful and be judicious--some of the talks contain profanity.

Greek Tragedy Archetype Explained
The tragic hero has a tragic flaw. The tragic flaw, most of the time, is a trait that seems good at first but ultimately causes the hero's downfall.
The three plot stages to a Greek Tragedy are reversal, recognition, and suffering. The reversal stage is where the tragic hero finds fortune and becomes something greater, like a king. Recognition happens when the tragic hero recognizes that fate has played with him/her, and that his/her fortune is actually tragic or terrible. The suffering usually happens after the hero recognizes the terrible fate they have incurred.
