Life is a tragedy viewed close up and a comedy in the long shot (Charlie Chaplain)
Imagine directing your life as a film.

How would you work out the story board/line? How would you start it – with what dramatic sequence? What songs and theme music would you include? The Grateful Dead? Mozart? What visual artist might feature? Frida Kahlo? Marc Chagal? Who would some of the other characters/antagonists be? How has your world view changed over the years? What symbols carry power for you? How would you represent them? What angles, lighting? What close-ups? How would you use the zoom? Where would you cut certain scenes? And the ending… and rolling credits?

Dorian is the purest storyteller …Archetypes cling to his coat tails and hide in his book-bag hoping for a mention in his next work. Every creative writer should work with Dorian. Like Pilates for creative spirits, he re-awakens the story loving child within. I cannot recommend this event too highly (Tess Fairweather)
