Building a Backstory Part 2: Asking the Questions

Ready to become a detective?

Now that you’ve identified the themes of the piece, it’s time to start asking the necessary questions. We know that themes help identify what the writer is trying to say overall in the story, now the next task is trying to figure out what exactly it is that the writer is saying. Catapult coach Joe Massingill is back for video two of our Building a Backstory series, and here to help you ask those necessary questions during script analysis work.


Joe will be in the upcoming series Catch 22! Premiering on Hulu on May 17th!
