Concentration: Media Management & Screenwriting
Title of Project: Disney and the Beast
Inspiration Behind the Project:
The pattern of a fairy tale generally leads to a happy ending. No matter the situation of the overall tale, the main character is bound to find what they were usually consciously/subconsciously trying to find: love. It is an insidious ‘pattern’ that has been ingested by Americans, and in turn, ‘contemporary women’ may be unsure on how to maintain the difference between real life and the fairy tale fantasy. For the purposes of this study, replace the word “folktales” with “fairy tales” to the quote aforementioned.
