Story Insight

Story Insight

Two quick insights that are worth reflecting on:
1. None of us have been to space, but that doesn’t matter as we’re quickly drawn into the story because it uses the universal experience of being a bored teenager, which we can all relate to.
2. There’s a lot of metaphorical imagery to guide how we should feel e.g. earthy coloured costumes for the goodies and grey uniforms evocative 20th Century fascist armies for the baddies. What are you doing to help guide how we feel?
