    Be careful not to let your hero become a boring passive bystander. They should be the one actively figuring out solutions and overcoming obstacles, not the one watching on the side as others do it.

    ★★★★

    This is an excellent example of how to make a high-concept movie. Identify an intimate human story and dress it up in an elevated form.

    Here you have a movie about a father losing his daughter to cancer, except it takes place in a world with a zombie infection.

    Winner of the prestigious Filmento award for best movie ever made. Pretty interesting character this Captain Jack Sparrow guy-- I'd like to see more of him in a sixth movie where we close out his story arc.

    ★★★★

    This is how you make a high-concept movie that feels fresh and original. Identify familiar topics and elements that everyone knows, and then find new ways to tell a story with them.
