stephen king's quote, “belief and reader absorption come in the details." is on point. the details are what give films life.
Nice, thanks RB. It's those details that can make a story world feel real. Good point in the article about not getting carried away with it, though. All it takes sometimes is mentioning an element in a scene and how the character reacts/ interacts with it.
It's a fine line indeed, Phil. You especially see this in sci-fi scripts - overkill on building the world while the characters and plot are underserved.
