Motifs are basic elements of narrative meaning
Story (THE VIEWERS INTERPRETATION)
Presumed and inferred
(THE VIEWERS GUIDE)Story and Plot
This implies a basic distinction: STORY and PLOT.
This distinction is useful for three reasons:
Just as there are films that build themselves systematically on principles of disunity, rather than unity, there are many important films that implicitly or explicitly challenge the norms of the CHC. The CHC presents a series of narrative conventions.
It neither objectively defines narrative as such, even good narrative, nor is it the only way of telling a story visually.
It is simply the most familiar model of film narrative. As you watch films you should think about which ones can be considered as creative deviations from the norm of Hollywood Cinema. There are also many important non-narrative films.
Our narrative competence, like our ability to speak, is huge but largely unconscious. You need to be encouraged to be more self-conscious about your activity as spectators, simply do not accept what you see. Investigate your expectations.
