- — vpisteve (@vpisteve)Mon, Apr 11 2011 21:28:26@thebruce0 single story, like a book, a film, a tv episode. Something with a beginning, middle, end. *Generally* speaking. It's not hard. :)
- — thebruce0 (@thebruce0)Mon, Apr 11 2011 21:30:12@vpisteve I agree, but the fact that multiple story arcs/threads within a story (diff characters, eg) also satisfies PGA "story lines" is :(

- — vpisteve (@vpisteve)Tue, Apr 12 2011 00:08:45@mikemonello right, but the film itself was part of the overall fiction too. It was all together more than just your typical franchising imo
- — mikemonello (@mikemonello)Tue, Apr 12 2011 00:11:21@vpisteve well, that's a different issue. Hell, most of H'wood still thinks the website was the work of a marketing department.
Steve Peters, Mike Monello et al. explore The Naming Controversy as it pertains to The Blair Witch Project.
