We’ve got a book coming out soon that will deal more with beats and genres. Please stay tuned!

Very interesting podcats…Congrats to you both!
I keep hearing/reading more & more about what the viewer “expects” to see in each genre’. In other words, we have to touch each base to satisfy them.
I hope your book can clarify what those bases are for each of STC’s Genre’s.

Thank you. Thought-provoking. Really like the emphasis on genre. Would love to see more posts dealing with the specifics of beats within the different genres.
