Creating Authentic Emotional Conflict
Character and plot are intertwined—after all, plot is what happens to the characters. If the audience does not care about the characters, the plot will falter. Audiences may be shocked or surprised by plots, but they care about characters. So authentic emotional conflict evolves from characters trying to deal with their circumstances. The character arc is the growth of the main character as he or she attempts to reconcile with the conflict of the plot. But before we can understand the course of a character’s progress (or regress), we have to know who that character is. In this workshop, you will cover how to naturally develop characters and story as a single unit so that your audience connects on a deep emotional level. By the end of this workshop, you will have a completed first act of your script—or a more polished one if you have already started your script—with comments from an industry professional and the tools you need to complete you screenplay.
