The Idea

The Lean Forward Moment is a way of telling better stories.The beauty of the system that you’ll learn in this book is that it enables you to more easily make all of the day-to-day small decisions, with the confidence that they will contribute to the course of your entire film. Because the process starts by discussing the overall movie (the “logline”), gets more specific (the “scene analysis”), and ends up with great detail (the “Lean Forward Moment”), you’ll be able to use these ideas to make any type of project, at any budget level and for any ultimate audience
