    • ‘ Without character you have no action, without action, no conflict: without conflict, no story;’ – Syd Field (The Screen writer’s Workbook)
    • What makes a good character?
    • How can this be expressed in a screenplay so that your work stands a much better chance of being original, imaginative and enjoyable?
  • 4. FINDING A PROTAGONIST-2
    • Phil Parker (The Art and Science of Screen writing) suggests all characters in any dramatic form have three essential aspects :
    • Outer presence – ‘dominant impression’
    • Inner presence – ‘dominant attitude’
    • Context – ‘world of the character’
    • So what should the screen writer consider when constructing a character?
  • 5.
    • Dominant Impression – created by the character, dependent upon age, sex, mannerisms, physical appearance, clothes, grooming, movement, style of speech etc.
    • Dominant attitude – of the character is based on their intelligence, knowledge, personality, temperament, likes, dislikes, beliefs, fears, goals, self image etc.
    • The world of the character – based on relationships with friends, colleagues, lovers, cultural background – class, education, place of birth, ethnicity, personal history- significant events in their life / their personal ‘back story’
  • 6. But beware !!!!
