Cinema; the thought of it, the emotions, Heroes, heroines, action sequences, the story and what not brings great feelings. Cinemas are made of stories. Stories are mostly about love, good verses bad, heart touching, memorable actions, twists, turns and melodrama. We see people making movies for mainstream audience and some young aspiring artists making movies for online channels such as YouTube, waiting for a big break.
Stories are created from live events, from the rich imagination of some, some follow the proven formula, some come from historical events and some follow a template theme. One such template is called “story spine”, originally created by playwright Author Kenn Adams, is a tool for creating well-structured stories. The template helps to quickly build a story. It consists of
The platform. Examples..
Once upon a time….
A man walking on a road ..
But one day..
Suddenly something happened to the man walking on the road..
Because of that….
The Man started chasing another man
The man stopped the other and said “hello friend”…
Ever since then..
The moral of the story is..
The man and the friend both went to a restaurant and recollect their memories.
Then there is another way of building stories , called what story, how story and why story.
What story. They simply tell what happened
A story about an incidence that happened in a village….
A story about a family that saw their ancestors…
Boy meets a girl and falls in love but friends don’t like it….
How story. Stories that tell how that happened.
There is a big hole made in a haunted house.. Villagers are thinking how that could be..
how are ancestors show up like that …
How can friends think the boy should not love the girl..
Why story, analysis of the issue.
Villagers found some ancient coins near that house…
Why are the ancestors interested in that house…
When the boy talked to the friends they told a story about their childhood incidence…
So by having a template like above we can make our imagination work to create stories. Modern cinemas are now made using cutting edge technologies and are influenced by modern society’s change of tastes.
Now being a Software guy I thought of creating a cinema template in the form of a flow chart. I’m using Microsoft word flow chart diagrams , so there will be a limit to my imaginations. But let me try.
The idea is to create a flow chart which can give us multiple choices for a particular theme. The flow chart enables us to come up with several logical conclusions while building some complex themes. So this template will be quite useful to test different ideas with a particular theme.
To create some great stories the trick is not to use the language Cinema people use. We have to change the language in order to come up with more creative stories. one such tip is to select a word and build a story on that word. For example in my flowchart i used a word called “Whisper”.
I know there are experts on movies but I just want the movie makers to know that we can use innovative way of building stories. Ultimately I love to watch movies that are refreshing, touch the raw nerve, memorable, different and at the same time make me laugh. I made a story while building this template but want you, the reader to build on the different choices I gave for the story to build your own story out of it. Please do write your conclusions to the story i created as comments…
Net worth is defined as “Assets – Liabilities”. Where assets are everything that you own(house, cars, jewellery, rental properties, securities etc. and in case of companies it would be employees, machinery, factories , bank balance etc. ) whereas Liabilities are credit card and debit card bills, EMI bills, loans, mortgages and other loans and for companies salaries, long and short term debt payments, taxes etc.
Whereas Liquid Net worth is “Liquid assets – short term expenses”.
Liquid asset are cash you hold or something that can be easily converted to cash (A fixed deposit in Bank ) , to meet short term expenses such as meeting the family expenses, near future payments such as credit card bills, rent, monthly bills and in case of companies it would be salaries, taxes , administrative and other expenses.
Covid-19 pandemic has brought to the lime light this very important self-assessment of personal, professional, emotional and financial evaluation to the core . It exposed all our fallacies of planning, optimism, denial, underestimation of the problem and not staying mindful of what’s happening around us that is destroying financial , professional and personal wealth and health.
What else is happening is that Nature already started signalling that we have done enough damage to the planet by expressing itself with extreme weather, unintended severe storms , mild earthquakes(recently in Delhi) which I think may destroy livelihood more than this covid-19 Pandemic and may lead to more financial distress to families and companies and to countries GDP growth.
When we look at these extra ordinary negative events, Liquid net worth becomes so important to all of us and it is time that individuals and companies should start to seriously evaluate all possible scenarios of what can go wrong and come up with alternative plans to avoid pain and grief. Companies cannot afford to layoff valuable experienced employees for this nasty passing cloud called Carona. Companies should have hard cash excluding working capital requirements (Cash is what is more important in present situations that can make or break a company) , that can allow them survive without any issue for at least a year with business as usual possibility, individuals should start asking if they are eligible to spend on any given day. We should avoid waste by not buying that we will not use/eat or can be postponed for a while. There are many more such ways we can assess to increase our Liquid Net Worth and reduce Liabilities to have a peaceful, healthy living or a nice evening walk with your near and dear. Ponder on this and increase your liquid Net worth and stay hale and healthy.
Note: Never ever go for EMI on Credit card or for Moratorium. Without your attention those bills become so huge that it can destroy all your present or future financial plannings and also net worth will be gone.
