Characters are everything

If characters are flat, I don't care how good the story is, I'm gonna lose interest. Characters are flawed whether they're protagonists, antagonists, supporting roles. They need to suck and occasionally shine. Max makes us dig deep and try to find facets to these personalities we're spending months or even years living with. Why would we shirk getting to know them? Don't! Take this course.

I was weak with characters in my screenplays. Now I'm not.

This aspect of storytelling was my Achilles's heel. And this course taught me how to introduce , describe and handle distinct and memorable characters in my screenplays. The techniques introduced in this course are true screenwriting hacks from a screenwriting warrior that has learnt and practiced her screenwriting in the Hollywood battlefields.
