This was at a weekend workshop, but you can buy his book called Story, which covers the same ground.  https://www.watersto...e/9780413715609

 

I understand there's a CD

 

There are other scriptwriting books that are easier reads..

Did McKee have concrete points in his lecture on the "right side"? Or was it mostly examples of scenes?

 

 

It was about who held the power at a particular point in the story and its impact of their renewed relationship. This was part of a breakdown of the film/script as a whole in story terms (he's a script guru after all), so perhaps this was more of an aside, which he threw in.  .

In western culture right is supposed to be the dominate side. Robert McKee (the script guru) discussed this in his lecture on story with Ingrid Bergman tending to be on the right, while Humphrey Bogart is on the left  at key moments in "Casablanca".

It could be this lens, but the focusing mechanism is missing: https://jerrybei.com...at-75mm-f2-lens

The Alexa 65 is a 4k camera, it depends if that is important to you and your production.
