I think you should go into the location and pay attention to whatever it is they do there as if you had to learn it in order to teach someone. I don't think you necessarily need to know about the topic. In fact, if you don't know about it you should be able to come up with the story much faster because you would just tell what you've just learned. It's like composing an essay for school.

I think you have to open your mind and then follow your instincts. Walk around for a while, then sit down and think about the story you would tell your wife or husband or whomever if you just came home. "I went to the store today and the most amazing thing happened".... Like that. If nothing amazing comes to mind, you don't have a story, or a film, for that matter.

I believe you said that we are to make a list of seven events need to tell "the story"...I wonder if you have an equally good formula or method of how I might decide on a choice of story while observing the place? It seems good to have at least a strong notion about an idea or plot of a story prior to listing seven events that are to tell 'the story'. Or is it that you know from experience that 'the story' becomes apparent once seven or so events are listed? Or is it that I don’t understand?
