ScreenwritingU Videos: A Great Antagonist and Protagonist

Postby Charles » Mon Dec 06, 2010 5:05 pm

The first two videos of this series are up and available for immediate viewing! Here's a summary of the second video: "A Look at a Great Antagonist."

There’s more to creating a great antagonist than most people think.

But if you can find the thing that makes your antagonist truly special, there’s a far better chance that someday you’ll have a major actor playing the part.

So how do you discover something special enough to make your antagonist go from “good” to “amazing”?

In this second free video, “A Look at a Great Antagonist”, I’ll show you exactly what a truly special antagonist looks like.

Why is this so important?

Because when your antagonist stands out from the other characters in your movie, you’ll create a role that any movie star will want to play.

A role like the one I’ve highlighted in this free video from the “Creating Roles for Movie Stars” class.

This video is only nine minutes long but it reveals specific details about what makes great antagonists like Hannibal Lecter so unique. Details I want YOU to be able to emulate in your own scripts.

Watch it for free now while you can.

P.S. Are you willing to go the extra step to take your lead characters to the next level? Then you must find the one thing that will make your antagonist great. See what I mean here.
